About Pacific MusicWorks

The guiding principles of our organization

Our Mission

A contemporary voice for early music.

Pacific MusicWorks explores the stories of the past and present dramatized through the medium of historical instrumentation and the human voice.

Our Vision

Pacific MusicWorks serves its community as a global leader and advocate for its chosen repertoire through collaboration with world-class artists and the cultivation of emerging musicians and performers.

Our Values

Everything we do is anchored with:









Seattle-based Pacific MusicWorks is a musical production company focused primarily, but not exclusively, on the presentation of vocal chamber music and operatic works of the 17th and 18th centuries. In recent years we have also committed ourselves to commissioning new works written for period instruments as a means of bridging the stories of the past with those of today.

We believe everyone should be able to experience the beauty and power of music. PMW extends its community through extensive programming of events at local venues and other non-traditional venues. Our newest initiative, Sanctuary in the City, removes financial barriers to access as a series of free-to-the-public concerts on the second Wednesday of each month at Christ Our Hope Church at the Josephinum in downtown Seattle.  These concerts gather a diverse audience– including local tech workers, passersby, retirees, school groups, and employees from other the nearby businesses. Sanctuary in the City cultivates a culture of congregation, community, reflection, and joy.

Land Acknowledgement

We at Pacific MusicWorks would like to acknowledge that we are based on the traditional land of the Coast Salish people, including the Duwamish People. A people who are still here, continuing to honor and bring light to their ancient heritage.
