A Message for our Music Community
Due to restrictions and the uncertain nature of group singing as a risk factor for COVID-19, Princeton Pro Musica does not anticipate performing live concerts during the 2020-21 season. This does not, however, mean we have cancelled our season. We are still in operation and are planning special online programming for our community of music lovers such as: Chamber Chorus – How can I keep from Singing?.
We hope you enjoy these offerings and continue to support us as we work toward returning to the concert hall. We can’t wait to see you there!
In the meantime, please enjoy our award-winning documentary.

Princeton Pro Musica
believes unequivocally that
Black Lives Matter
Responding to widespread demonstrations following the killing of George Floyd, the Board of Directors of Princeton Pro Musica issued a statement affirming that Black Lives are valued, needed, and equal – in the world at large and in the choral arts specifically. We recognize that conversations about equity are long overdue, and, as an organization, we are committed to having those conversations internally and with our community. as choral singers, we are taught the importance of listening louder than we sing: so too must we listen louder than we speak.
This statement represents not the culmination of our work, but its beginning. Our mission is to perform the greatest works of choral literature “with energy, passion, and uncompromising artistic excellence.” We will approach our efforts toward equity with the same sense of rigor.

This spring marks seventy-five years since the end of World War II, seventy-five years since the liberation of the concentration camps, and the end of one of the darkest periods in our history. It also marks seventy-five years since the world lost a voice of hope and light – the voice of Anne Frank.
