The Board of the Pro Nova Chamber Ensemble would like to assure you that, while Pro Nova concerts are presently in abeyance due to the coronavirus pandemic, and the health and safety regulations surrounding public events, members of the Pro Nova Ensemble are anxious and planning future concerts ahead, while we practice our instruments alone in our homes! We will resume public concerts as soon as circumstances allow.
The Pro Nova Ensemble have created a tribute to Hans-Karl Piltz from Bach's Art of Fugue
The Pro Nova Ensemble is very saddened to announce the passing of Hans-Karl Piltz.
Hans-Karl played viola and then violin with the ensemble for many years.
Even after his retirement he continued to play a very active role with the group.
Hans-Karl was a very familiar face to audiences at all of the Pro Nova concerts
giving knowledgeable and humorous introductions to the music.
Behind the scenes he continued to provide the ensemble with his wealth of information and experience.
He will be sorely missed.
Members of the Ensemble are:
Shin-Jung Nam (cello), Ju Dee Ang (violin), Barbara Irschick (viola), Hyunsil Lucia Roh (violin)
