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 the mesmerizing O Magnum Mysterium by Morten Lauridsen and all-time favorite The Many Moods of Christmas Suite by Robert Shaw and Robert Russell Bennett. Join us for traditional carols with the APM Concert Chorus and Orchestra Pro Musica!

MARCH 5, 2023 – STAR SONG
Albany Pro Musica will present the New York State premiere of Star Song, a 12-movement work for chorus, chamber orchestra, and soloists. This work by Bradley Ellingboe, APM’s composer-in-residence, incorporates texts drawn from a variety of cultures and through a span of centuries ranging from the 8th century BCE to the present day, and sung in English, Latin, Hebrew, and French. The work examines the idea that we are all made of atoms that are unfathomably old, having been formed at the moment of creation. This performance will feature the American Modern Ensemble.

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 baritone Philip Lima will return to share the stage with the Albany Pro Musica Concert Chorus and Orchestra Pro Musica in this program of peace and reconciliation.
