The 80-year History of Pro Musica Detroit
Thursday, May 17, 7:30 p.m.
Alexander Suczek, long time Grosse Pointer,
Pointe News
contributor, local summer chamber music
festival organizer and President of Pro Musica Detroit,
will discuss his recently published book,
The Witness of
Music: The 80-year History of Pro Musica Detroit.
This book explains how Detroit’s leading musicians and
music lovers organized a local chapter of the prestigious,
New York-based concert group, Pro Musica. Detroit had
the only one of 20 such chapters to survive the 1929
stock market crash and thrive for 80 years. Suczek will
discuss how it has thrived and the amazing list of great
composers and brilliant artists the group has been pre-
senting in Detroit ever since.
