Artistic Director Ryan James Brandau
Sublime start to the holiday season PPM Concert December 4
Our very own maestro’s stirring suite of carols and holiday tunes! Richly orchestrated, including dazzling choral favorites by Johann Sebastian Bach and George Frederic Handel, Joy to the World: A Christmas Suite will fill you with the joy and warmth of the holiday season.
Artistic Director Ryan James Brandau notes, “Music might help us reimagine or reconnect to the past. It might underscore our present, amplifying our joys, deepening our longings. If I could bring joy to the world, I would. In the meantime, I hope this suite plays its small part.”
Take advantage of $10 student tickets and a 20% discount for groups by calling the Princeton Pro Musica office at 609-683-5122. A friendly office volunteer will answer your questions and take your order.

To Music, to Joy

November 4, 2018
This concert kicks off the celebration of Princeton Pro Musica’s fortieth anniversary. The idea for this program came easily to me and started with our name – pro musica – “to music.” For forty years, the artists of Princeton Pro Musica have worked passionately to bring you the very best in music, and this afternoon we want to offer our thanks to you, for your support, and to music itself which has inspired all of us.
Programs made possible in part by funds from Church & Dwight Employee Giving Fund, The Edward T. Cone Foundation, The New Jersey State Council on the Arts – Department of State – a Partner Agency of the National Endowment for the Arts, and The New Jersey Cultural Trust.
