On May 21, 2018, Pro Musicis hosted a gala award dinner at the Consulate of France in New York. Anne-Claire Legendre gave the welcome address and spoke about the vision of founder Father Eugene Merlet and the decisive influence of Pro Musicis artists to awaken the human spirit in concert halls and community service venues on both sides of the Atlantic since 1965.
