Now in its 37th season, Albany Pro Musica is known for presenting an electrifying and eclectic mix of performances that include some of the finest a cappella repertoire as well as concerts in collaboration with artists including the Philadelphia Orchestra, American String Quartet, Canadian Brass, New York City Ballet, and Albany Symphony.
APM gives singers an opportunity to build meaningful artistic expression with colleagues of similar advanced abilities. The Concert Chorus is a selective group of 65 singers with a high level of musicianship and vocal technique. This group is expected to sing diverse choral literature and must commit to sing all subscription concerts as well as take part, as often as possible, in additional singing engagements, events and responsibilities that support our fund-raising and community efforts.
Rehearsals take place on Tuesday evenings September through May. The Masterworks Chorus is for highly accomplished singers who may not be able to commit to all subscription series concerts or singers who prefer only singing master works with orchestra. These singers join Albany Pro Musica for special performances when a larger choir is required approximately once or twice per season. Rehearsals take place on Tuesday evenings 6-8 weeks prior to a performance.
For more information about subscriptions, single tickets, or any of the programs, please contact the Troy Savings Bank Music Hall at 518-273-0038, or online at troymusichall.org or albanypromusica.org.

Lauridsen was named “American Choral Master” by the National Endowment for the Arts and received the National Medal of Arts “for his composition of choral works combining musical beauty, power and spiritual depth that have thrilled audiences worldwide.” Under the shadow of his famous brother Joseph, Michael Haydn wrote some of the most beautiful music, of which his Requiem is his masterpiece. Two masterworks from two contrasting eras in one memorable performance with the Orchestra Pro Musica.
