Pro Musica began presenting concerts in 1981 with a mission to "foster interest in, appreciation for, and enjoyment of world-class, live classical music in Joplin and the four-state area."
To carry out this mission, Pro Music presents a well-rounded classical music program to the people of this area: a full and diverse menu of chamber music, symphonic repertoire, and light classics. These concerts and their ancillary outreach and education services are designed to complement, not compete with, other area music organizations.
Pro Musica's chamber music series consists of five or six concerts each season. It features professional artists of recognized national and international reputations. This series has been kept open to the public at no charge since its beginning in 1981, thus encouraging and enabling attendance by students, families, those on limited incomes, and people just beginning to appreciate classical music.
