about us
Santa Fe Pro Musica is a
501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.


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 Emeritus) and Carol Redman (Music Director), Santa Fe Pro Musica offers a variety of classical music programs in historic Santa Fe venues, including an Orchestra Series in the Lensic Performing Arts Center, a String Quartet Series presenting world-renowned string quartets in St. Francis Auditorium, and the Loretto Chapel Series featuring chamber music on historical instruments. Pro Musica has achieved many accolades, including a GRAMMY nomination, a 5-year affiliation with the Smithsonian Institution, and national recognition for its decades-long support of women in leadership roles in classical music.

From its initial season, 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!
