Featured Event

Seattle Pro Musica Presents: Silent Night

Choral, Classical

2018 marks the 100th anniversary of the end of WWI, the “war to end all wars.” Our concert is inspired by the Christmas truce in 1914 during which roughly 100,000 English, French, and German troops ceased hostilities to offer holiday greetings, mingle, and even exchange gifts. We celebrate this spirit of peace with carols and holiday music from England, France, and Germany. December 2018 also marks the 200th anniversary of the creation and premiere of the beloved carol “Silent Night,” written during an era when all of Europe suffered from political upheaval, war, and economic hardship. In 1818, Joseph Mohr brought his original text to organist Franz Xaver Gruber and asked for a simple melody with guitar accompaniment for a Christmas Eve service—the result has since become a timeless expression of light, hope, and solace.
