OCTOBER 23, 2022 – I DREAM A WORLD
Langston Hughes’ powerful poem – with its profound call for love, peace, freedom, and joy – sets the tone for Albany Pro Musica’s opening concert of the 2022-2023 season. Albany Pro Musica’s Concert Chorus will present several musical settings of Hughes’ work, along with other pieces that highlight our shared humanity, in this concert featuring guest baritone Philip Lima.

DECEMBER 18, 2022 – THE MANY MOODS OF CHRISTMAS
A favorite holiday tradition for families across the Capital Region, this concert is designed to inspire, celebrate, and unite us in the spirit of the season. This concert is framed by Lauridsen’s moving O Magnum Mysterium and all-time favorite The Many Moods of Christmas Suite, and also features Rutter’s spectacular Gloria. Join us for traditional carols with the Concert Chorus and Orchestra Pro Musica!

MARCH 5, 2023 – STAR SONG
Albany Pro Musica will present the Capital Region premiere of Star Song by Bradley Ellingboe, APM’s composer-in-residence. This work bridges historical periods, languages, and faith traditions and examines the idea that we are all, in the words of Carl Sagan, “made of star stuff” — composed of atoms that are unfathomably old and formed at the moment of creation. This concert features the American Modern Ensemble and tenor Dann Coakwell. Additional works by Gjeilo, Hoffman, Tiguls, Ticheli, and Lauridsen.

MAY 7, 2023 – MUSIC FOR PEACE IN A TIME OF WAR
The final concert of our 2022-2023 series will feature Ralph Vaughn Williams’ Dona Nobis Pacem and Franz Joseph Haydn’s Missa in Tempore Belli. Guest soloists Evangelia Leontis, Kara Dugan, Daniel Mojica, and Philip Lima will share the stage with the Albany Pro Musica Concert Chorus and Orchestra Pro Musica in this program of peace and reconciliation.
