About Pro Musica

In 1958, Pro Musica came into being as a string quartet and subsequently grew into a small chamber orchestra. M.L.Usni Pramoj was an original founder, violinist in the quartet, concertmaster of the orchestra, occasional conductor, and general manager. The orchestra received much support from the Goethe Institute, various cultural missions, and a few business concerns. It became Thailand’s first non-government professional orchestra with the aim of promoting classical music in Thailand. The orchestra performed regularly until 1975 when it metamorphosed into the Bangkok Symphony Orchestra. Recently, it became apparent that there was still a need for a small and more mobile chamber orchestra. Thus the Pro Musica Orchestra was revived
