Seattle Pro Musica - A World of Choral Beauty
Additional Performances

Coming Soon!

Northern Lights in the South Sound

Join us in Olympia for our highly anticipated annual appearance on the St. John's Episcopal Concert Series! Northern Lights showcases music that evokes the shimmering beauty of the aurora borealis, spanning a thousand years of Baltic and Nordic choral music, from medieval chant to contemporary works by Mäntyjärvi, Kreek, and Tormis. The centerpiece is Northern Lights by Ēriks Ešenvalds, one of today’s most sought-after young composers. With voices, chimes, and tuned water goblets, Ešenvalds recreates the wonder of the northern lights in sound.

Ever Ancient, Ever New: A Festival of St James Choirs
Celebrating 25 Years of Image Journal

Saturday, November 8, 2014 - 7:30 pm
St James Cathedral - 9th and Marion, Seattle

This evening of ancient and modern choral works by Bach, Britten, St. Hildegard of Bingen, Pärt, Stravinsky, and others—as well as three commissioned world premieres—will celebrate the 25th anniversary of Image, one of Seattle’s hidden treasures, a literary quarterly that celebrates the best contemporary writing and art that engage with faith. Poetry from the pages of Image by writers such as Denise Levertov, Kathleen Norris, and Franz Wright will be interspersed with performances by the Medieval Women’s Choir, Opus 7 Vocal Ensemble, Seattle Pro Musica, and the Women of St James Schola. This event will demonstrate one of Image’s founding tenets: that beauty’s power to draw us closer to the divine—through music, poetry, and all the arts—is not a thing of the past, but is continually being renewed in our own time.
