ProMusica Concert Series — Oct 2010 to April 2011

September 18, 2010

Filed under: San Miguel de Allende Events — Annie @ 1:00 pm

All concerts of the ProMusica classical concert series take place on Saturdays and Sundays (with a few exceptions, as noted below) at 5 pm in St.Paul’s Church (Calle del Cardo #6) in San Miguel.  St.Paul’s Church is San Miguel’s most acoustically perfect and intimate listening space.  It seats up to 250 people and brings listeners close to the musicians.  The church also is home to the 1927 Steinway grand piano acquired by the ProMusica organization specifically for these concerts.  There is ample parking at the neighboring Cardo parking lot.

The 2010/2011 ProMusica series runs from Oct 9, 2010, to April 3, 2011.  The basic schedule as of Sept 2010 is listed below, but please check the website for program specifics and any updates (
