ProMusica Arizona (PMAZ) presents the concert version of Rodgers & Hammerstein’s massive hit South Pacific. This award-winning classic is set in an island paradise during World War II when parallel love stories are threatened by the dangers of prejudice and war. There are moments of joy, discovery and loss in this historic musical, with songs ranging from the haunting “Bali Ha’i” to “There Is Nothing Like a Dame” as sailors and island inhabitants struggle through the conflict.
Joseph Haydn introduced The Creation in 1798, and it is considered by many to be his masterpiece. The oratorio celebrates the creation of the world as described in the biblical book of Genesis, leading listeners from darkness and chaos, through dissonance and harmony, to the earthly paradise of the Garden of Eden. The music ranges from hushed, charming passages to powerful crescendos as it portrays the evolution of the world and its inhabitants.
The Video Games Live™ concert on March 8 & 9, 2014 brought nearly 1,800 concert attendees to their feet in standing ovations for both performances.

Dynamic VGL host and creator Tommy Tallarico kept the audience rapt with guitar playing and humor, and the costume show climaxed with the audience anointing the winner with enthusiastic applause.
