Pasatiempo Review | April 26, 2019 | From struggle and conflict, beautiful music; Pro Musica’s East Meets West
Marc Shulgold reviews Pro Musica’s 2018-29 Season Finale

Titled East Meets West, the two concerts are subtitled Resilience in the Face of Adversity. As the New Zealand conductor explained, the latter touches on the struggles faced by the program’s three composers.
