Seattle Pro Musica turns 45 this year, and we have an exciting year of musical offerings ahead. Our subscription season includes our holiday concert Winter Rose, our concert Sounds and Sweet Airs for the Seattle Celebrates Shakespeare Festival, and Sacred Ground which celebrates our relationship with the natural world. Other highlights include our cabaret show Rearranged and our performance with Seattle Symphony of Berlioz's Requiem. This is an anniversary season you won’t want to miss!
The “winter rose” – also called the “Christmas rose” or “snow rose” – is known for blooming during the darkest days of winter in the mountains of Central Europe. Our holiday concert celebrates the light and hope symbolized by the winter rose with such favorites as Lo, how a rose e’er blooming by Praetorius and A spotless rose by Herbert Howells.
Free pre-concert talks by conductor Karen P. Thomas one hour prior to all performances of Winter Rose.
