Who We Are
Princeton Pro Musica
Princeton Pro Musica is a 100-voice chorus of exceptional singers committed to the highest quality of performance, partnerships with other arts organizations, encouraging the choral arts in New Jersey, and maximizing the public benefit and enjoyment of all performances. These skilled musicians, who must re-audition every season, represent a wide variety of ages and professions. Princeton Pro Musica treasures its role offering important performance opportunities for the many current and former music educators and individuals holding music degrees among its ranks. Princeton Pro Musica also maintains a small core of professional singers. Singers commit to vigorous weekly rehearsals and a four-concert season each year. Between rehearsals, singers communicate through e-mail and a members’ website.
The singers and board of Princeton Pro Musica are thrilled that the dedication of volunteer singers has brought top-caliber, internationally recognized talent to the central NJ region.

Over the past several seasons, Princeton Pro Musica has earned nationwide, statewide, and local recognition. In 2013 and 2014, PPM was named a finalist in the nationwide American Prize competition community chorus division. In 2009, the ensemble was invited to perform at the ACDA Eastern Division conference in Philadelphia. Locally, PPM routinely garners high praise for performance of a wide variety of repertoire.
In addition to the full symphonic chorus, Princeton Pro Musica includes a chamber chorus and contracts with professional orchestral musicians and professional vocal soloists. The chamber chorus maintains an active schedule of performances at retirement centers and community events and also performs in select subscription concerts. The orchestra is often featured in subscription concerts through performances of concertos, suites, overtures, and other orchestral repertoire.
