Seattle Pro Musica invites you to experience the sublime beauty of the human voice in expressions of joy, pathos and inspiration. Enjoy the excitement of Seattle Pro Musica’s new season!
Fire - Music of Passion
Just in time for Valentine's Day, get swept away with songs of passion, yearning and love in Fire, Seattle Pro Musica's upcoming series of outreach concerts. The performance features Morten Lauridsen's Fire Madrigals, set to Italian Renaissance poetry steeped in unrequited love. Also featured are selections from Joshua Shank's seductive and flirtatious Color Madrigals, the languid tenderness of Jonathan Miller’s Let him kiss me, and sweet, poignant love songs by Samuel Barber, Dale Warland, and Eric Whitacre.
Plus, you won't want to miss the world premiere of Wild Nights by Karen P. Thomas, Seattle Pro Musica's own Artistic Director and Conductor. The piece is set to a posthumously-published Emily Dickinson poem, unique in its tone of unrestrained passion.

Chorus America in Seattle
Seattle Pro Musica and Seattle Symphony Orchestra & Chorale join forces to co-host the 36th Annual Chorus America Conference, bringing choral luminaries from all over North America together to celebrate choral music in Seattle! Chorus America is the national advocacy, research, and leadership development organization for choruses, choral leaders, and singers.
There will be many choral concerts and activities during the June 12-15, 2013 conference, highlighted by a collaboration of the Seattle Symphony Orchestra & Chorale and Seattle Pro Musica to present performances of Benjamin Britten's masterwork, the War Requiem, on June 13 and 15 at Benaroya Hall. 2013 marks the centenary of Britten's birth, and we are thrilled to join in presenting one of the most important and compelling works of the 20th century.
Weihnachten - German Christmas
Experience the joyous sounds of traditional German choral music for the Christmas season, including our atmospheric candlelight processional, traditional carols, and beautiful works by Bruckner, Mendelssohn, Biebl and Distler. Last season’s Christmas concerts sold-out in advance, and elicited glowing reviews: “It’s no accident that this choir is considered one of the best in the country.”
Christmas with Seattle Pro Musica
(December 8, 2012, Town Hall)
Back by popular demand – bring your entire family to Christmas with Seattle Pro Musica – a Family Holiday Concert. This one-hour concert is designed for children of all ages, and features traditional carols, an audience sing-along, and young choral singers joining us in performance. We’ll even have a prize drawing for two lucky children to come up onstage and conduct!
Fleur - Songs of Spring
Rejoice in the return of the sun, with music that captures the beauty and splendor of spring. Eric Whitacre’s Cloudburst portrays a wild thunderstorm with dramatic intensity; while Morten Lauridsen applies a delicate touch to the exquisite poetry of Rilke in Les Chansons des Roses. The evocative Five Flower Songs of Benjamin Britten provide a contemporary contrast to romantic songs of nature by Brahms and Mendelssohn. On March 10, Seattle Pro Musica welcomes the Bellevue Girlchoir as part of our Education & Outreach Program.
Lucis - Music of Light
Immerse yourself in the sound of contemporary classics – 20th and 21st century works written for a reverberant cathedral acoustic, and expressing humanity’s connection to the divine and to each other. The featured work is Canticum calamitatis maritimae by Finnish composer Jaakko Mantyjarvi – written to commemorate a tragic 1994 shipwreck. Also included are the luminous Lucis creator optime by the Lithuanian composer Vytautis Miskinis, and A drop in the ocean by Latvian composer Eriks Esenvald.
