Mission

The mission of Pacific MusicWorks is to offer presentations worthy of the world stage to the Northwest and beyond. PMW collaborates with musicians of international renown as well as with leading musicians from the NW to foster creative dialogue among artists from a broad array of fields and cultures. Performances range from chamber music to oratorio and opera, all inspired by the vision and international performing career of founding artistic director Stephen Stubbs.

Description

Founded in 2007 by GRAMMY-award winning conductor Stephen Stubbs, Pacific MusicWorks presents music and theater to audiences across the Seattle area and beyond. PMW brings internationally renowned artists into collaboration with leading musicians from the Northwest and fosters creative dialogue among artists from a broad array of fields and cultures. The heart of its repertoire is 17th- and 18th-century vocal music, but performances include masterworks from the Renaissance to innovative contemporary works, from chamber music to oratorio and opera, with an ongoing commitment to presenting works by women and composers of color. Features of our standard programs include a world-class Main Stage concert series and our outreach venture - Sanctuary in the City - which offers free noontime concerts on the first Wednesday of the month at the crossroads of Downtown and Belltown, bringing together Amazon employees and their unhoused neighbors, school children, and senior citizens, all enjoying music together in the beautiful acoustic of Christ Our Hope at the Josephinum. During the pandemic, Pacific MusicWorks has remained active and fully engaged, replacing our standard offerings with high-quality virtual concerts spanning diverse themes such as Time Stands Still: The Golden Age of English Songs (with countertenor Reginald Mobley), Navidad: Holiday Music from Latina and South America, and GENIOUS UNBOUND: Masterworks from the Stylus Phantasticus.  Pacific MusicWorks returned to LIVE performances in October 2021 with Festa Italiana featuring Daniel Reutter-Harrah, soprano, and William Skeen, cello. Since then we have offered two more Mainstage events - Fiesta de Navidad, Les Fêtes Parisiennes  - and will, in May, present Wayward Sisters, a dynamic tapestry of sound and movement featuring four brilliant sopranos (Tess Altiveros, Arwen Myers, Teresa Wakim, and Danielle Reutter-Harrah) along with three dancers, all staged with choreography by Anna Mansbridge. These diverse and multi-faceted programs are guided by the vision of founding artistic director (and Seattle native) Stephen Stubbs in partnership with co-Artistic Directors Henry Lebedinsky and Tekla Cunningham.
