Boston’s innovative, cooperatively run chamber orchestra invites you to our 40th Anniversary Season! We will honor Pro Arte’s rich history of bringing you collaborative, inventive, high quality programming in a climate that maximizes artistic freedom. Experience a formative mix of commissions by Boston-based composers, contemporary works, integrated with potent classics, all brought to life by Boston’s finest musicians and renowned soloists! Principal conductor Kevin Rhodes takes the baton at our September and May concerts, and we welcome Maestro James Somerville to the podium for our January concert.

Featuring Oregon Symphony Principal Trumpet and Pro Arte alumnus Jeffrey Work, the BSO’s Thomas Martin on Clarinet, and world premieres by Howard Frazin and Thomas Oboe Lee, our 40th Season is not to be missed!
