Pro Musica History
Béla Bartók delivered a ten minute talk and a piano recital of his music. Maurice Ravel played solo piano pieces, accompanied a singer performing his songs and directed an ensemble of musicians from the Detroit Symphony in his Introduction and Allegro.
They set a standard and a tradition that the officers and members of Pro Musica have been dedicated to maintaining for nearly 92 years. The 40 composers and hundreds of artists appearing for this unique concert society have ranked consistently among the finest in the world.
The second season brought Ottorino Respighi and Arthur Honegger, the third Alexander Tansman and Sergei Prokofiev and then Dr. Ernst Toch. Future seasons were to see Aaron Copland, Henry Cowell, Paul Hindemith, Nadia Boulanger, Francis Poulenc and Darius Milhaud. In recent seasons more American composers have appeared including George Crumb, Ned Rorem, Michael Daugherty and William Bolcom.
