Chorus Pro Musica is a distinguished and innovative Boston chorus which has had well over 1000 members in its 70-year history. Under its current music director, Jamie Kirsch, it continues its approach of introducing great new choral music and bringing together choral masterpieces of all eras and traditions, drawing novel and meaningful connections that celebrate the expressive power of the human voice.
Chorus pro Musica recognizes music’s role as an instrument of protest and social change and condemns the prejudice and violence that perpetuate systemic racism in this country.
In every concert, we make choices that amplify the voices and words of others. We recognize that all too often, those choices have been exclusive, and our music has not helped advance racial justice and equity. We commit to re-examining our current policies and programming, from auditions to performances, and to exploring how better to promote racial and social justice. Above all, we pledge to listen, learn, and act. Please look out for information about our progress and actions over the coming months and years.
Jamie Kirsch is the sixth Music Director of Chorus pro Musica. He is also Director of Choral Activities at Tufts University, where he conducts the Tufts Concert Choir, Chamber Singers, and teaches music theory and conducting.
