Seattle Pro Musica Presents Peace: Music of Three Faiths, March 12-13

Premiere vocal ensemble Seattle Pro Musica brings their newest program to St. James Cathedral this weekend. Under the direction of Karen P. Thomas, Seattle Pro Musica’s concert will explore the concepts of faith and peace through new choral works from around the globe. From the website: Peace explores the deep connections between three Abrahamic faiths: Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. Anchoring the program are Gloria (everywhere) by Turkish-American composer Kamran Ince with words by the 13th-century Sufi poet Rumi, and I sing of love by Bernard Hughes who weaves together texts from Jewish, Christian, and Muslim traditions. The concert also features uplifting works by Renaissance Jewish composer Salamone Rossi and contemporary Latvian composer Ēriks Ešenvalds, along with Islamic songs and interfaith chants. Tickets run $25 and are available here. Keep your eye on Pro Musica’s calendar in the coming months as they host their 22nd annual Gala Benefit & Auction on April 9 and perform Bach’s B minor Mass on May 14.
