Seattle Pro Musica's 2014-15 Season

Our December concerts take us to France for Noël, A French Christmas, and our popular Christmas with Seattle Pro Musica Family Holiday Concert provides holiday cheer for children of all ages. In March 2015, we celebrate International Women’s Day with a tribute to great female composers across the centuries with our program Caritas: Sacred Music by Women. St. Hildegard of Bingen’s 12th-century chants are juxtaposed with today’s most exciting new composers from North America, Korea and Eastern Europe, with a special spotlight on composers of the Pacific Northwest. We close our 2014-15 Season with Prism, a concert of mystical, minimal music by Arvo Pärt paired with pieces by Scotsman James MacMillan, whose hauntingly beautiful works have been described as “both timeless and contemporary.” The striking yet spare sounds of other contemporary composers, including a world premiere by John Muehleisen, rounds out a wonderful program. Subscriptions and single tickets are available now!

Praise for Brahms' Ein deutsches Requiem
"As always with this group, the result was technically excellent and musically thoughtful... the Requiem uplifts and moves the spirit, as it did in this performance by this stellar group and an excellent orchestra with an insightful conductor." - Pippa Kiraly, The SunBreak (May 2014)
