Soprano Rachel Schutz, winner of the 2019 Pro Musicis Int’l Award

“The notion behind Pro Musicis is a simple but daring one. On the one hand, the organization aims to give talented young musicians the boost they need to build major performing careers. On the other hand, Pro Musicis brings live concerts to those least likely to be exposed to classical music.” — The Boston Globe

Soprano Rachel Schutz in Review
Carnegie Hall’s Weill Hall, November 8, 2021

“Weill Hall was the venue for yet another fine offering from Pro Musicis, featuring soprano Rachel Schutz. … Sincerity is the word that I believe best describes Ms. Schutz’s approach. … Her virtuosity was indisputable and made quite an impression on this listener … The audience rewarded Ms. Schutz with a well-deserved standing ovation. Let’s take a moment to offer kudos to the excellent pianist Timothy Long, who was an outstanding collaborator and a force in his own right.” Jeffrey Williams for New York Concert Review

“Pro Musicis presented pianist Robert Fleitz in a highly auspicious debut at Weill Hall, continuing their established tradition of presenting outstanding musicians on prominent world stages as well as in charitable venues. … Apart from his programming gifts, Robert proved to be an excellent pianist in diverse repertoire. … He has the gift of being able to deeply internalize his music while projecting equally well his vibrant conceptions. … I would hear a Robert Fleitz concert again in a heartbeat.” Rorianne Schrade for New York Concert Review
