2015-16 Concert Season

Since our inception in 1978, Pro Arte musicians — thirty four professional free-lance players — are committed to making fine music of our own choosing. Each of us is a contributing member of our Cooperative, one of only eight recognized in the United States. You may see us individually around town in other guises but here we share something special and unique.
