Since its very beginning in 1948, Pro Musica’s musical season has always been a brilliant one and, without its series, the Montreal cultural scene would not be quite the same. Our mission: to offer Montreal music lovers a vast selection of chamber music from all repertoires and for all instruments. In the course of those sixty-nine years, Pro Musica has presented concerts and recitals at which hundreds of internationally prominent musicians from Canada and abroad were greeted with repeated applause: singers and instrumentalists from all disciplines performing in musical ensembles of all sizes (s0lo, duos, trios, quartets, small orchestras). In total, close to 4,200 works chosen from all repertoires, periods and schools were performed, which the Montreal public was able to discover and enjoy. Again this year, we present a most exciting season, showcasing remarkable musicians.
In addition to the presentation of its annual musical season, Pro Musica fulfills an important educational objective by offering young brilliant artists on the brink of an international career a chance to be recognized, thus supporting the next generation of upcoming musicians. Furthermore, the Society has offered guidance in this world of chamber music to a young audience and distributed free tickets each year to our music faculty students. Also, for the past twenty years, Pro Musica has set aside full subscriptions for visually-impaired individuals and an accompanying friend. By offering young listeners an introduction to chamber music and giving free concert tickets to students of our different Music Faculties, Pro Musica is nurturing a new generation of music lovers.
Pro Musica puts this triple vocation, artistic, pedagogic and philanthropic, at the service of all Montrealers and all major ethnic and cultural groups which make up the richness of the city are represented in its audiences.
