Albany Pro Musica’s beloved holiday concert brings the light of the Christmas season to the Troy Savings Bank Music Hall. From the hushed opening notes of Lauridsen’s “O Magnum Mysterium” to the joyful mix of traditional carols in Bennett and Shaw’s “The Many Moods of Christmas” suite, this concert inspires and delights audiences each year.

SEASCAPES: March 3, 2024 | 3:00 PM | Troy Savings Bank Music Hall
Composers have, for centuries, drawn inspiration from the immense beauty, power, and vastness of the seas. The acclaimed Alturas Duo joins Albany Pro Musica for Oceana, or Caderas de las Islas, a work for chorus, guitar, and viola by contemporary composer and guitarist Javier Farías. This chamber work sets the poetry of Pablo Neruda to music and evokes the wonders of the ocean. The first half will include diverse works by Hoffman, Barnum, Choi, Orlovich, and others which pay musical homage to the seas.
BACH’S B MINOR MASS: April 28, 2024 | 3:00 PM | Troy Savings Bank Music Hall
J.S. Bach’s Mass in B minor is considered one of the greatest masterworks in the choral canon, and was described by one scholar as “a summary of [Bach’s] writing for voice […] Bach’s mighty setting preserved the musical and artistic creed of its creator for posterity.” Albany Pro Musica will be joined by renowned guest soloists and experts in historically informed performance who play in period-instrument orchestras such as the Handel + Haydn Society, Boston Baroque, Apollo’s Fire, Trinity Baroque, and others.
