Escola de Art Pró-Musica: A little history
One of the original founders of the Escola de Artes Pro-Musica was Kay F. Brown (an American choir conductor and flutist originally from Wisconsin). Kay was also the music director at the Presbyterian Church of Guanabara. Her husband, Keith Spalding Brown (Unicamp), is one of the foremost researchers on mapping and conserving butterfly biodiversity in the Brazilian Amazon.
In 2017, Pró-Musica is celebrating its 40th anniversary with the inauguration of its new concert hall dedicated to Kay Brown's memory. It has also programmed some excellent weekly concerts throughout the year.
The school is currently owned by Marli Rossin, B.S. in Art Education and Carlos Wiik. a pianist with a Master’s in piano performance and Ph.D. in Music Education from the University of Florida.
