Princeton Pro Musica exists to perform choral masterworks and other works of the choral literature with energy, passion, and uncompromising artistic excellence. We believe in the power of choral music to uplift and transform our current and future audiences, performers, and communities.
Now in its 34th season, Princeton Pro Musica features a symphonic chorus, an orchestra, and a chamber chorus. Princeton Pro Musica is committed to the highest quality of performance standards, partnerships with other arts organizations, encouraging New Jersey artists, and maximizing the public benefit of all performances.
