Santa Fe Pro Musica brings together outstanding musicians to inspire and educate audiences of all ages through the performance of great music.
Founded in 1980 by Thomas O’Connor (Music Director and Conductor) and Carol Redman (Associate Artistic Director and Principal Flute), Santa Fe Pro Musica offers a variety of classical music programs in historic Santa Fe venues, and presents professional musical performances for orchestra, string quartet, chamber ensemble, and performances on baroque instruments. The Santa Fe Pro Musica orchestra has been internationally recognized with a 2008 GRAMMY® nomination for Best Classical Album/Small Ensemble for its recording, in collaboration with the Smithsonian Chamber Players, of Gustav Mahler’s Das Lied von der Erde/The Song of the Earth.
Since 1980, Santa Fe Pro Musica has been committed to a multi-faceted music education program for the people of northern New Mexico. This approach allows us to meet the needs of a wide range of students, from children who are attending a classical music event for the first time, to those whose music goals may be college and career oriented, and to adults who desire to know more about music. Pro Musica provides a variety of opportunities to help you develop a life-long relationship with the power of music!
