In celebration of its 10th Anniversary Season, ProMusica Arizona paid tribute to the audiences that have supported the organization from its beginnings in 2003. The concert performances on May 18th and 19th at Boulder Creek High School Performing Arts Center in Anthem featured the music genres most applauded by audiences and discounted tickets for PMAZ’s 10th anniversary. Under the direction of Dr. Adam Stich, the musical celebration included a medley of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Broadway musicals, Mozart's Symphony #40, Sousa's Stars and Stripes Forever, America and the hilarious one-act Gilbert & Sullivan musical, Trial by Jury.
In their first concert in downtown Phoenix, ProMusica Arizona's Chorale and Orchestra brought A Night with Stradivarius to the Orpheum Theatre. PMAZ musicians were thrilled to share the stage with one of America’s most celebrated violinists, Elizabeth Pitcairn, for her first concert appearance in Arizona. Ms. Pitcairn performed in partnership with one of the world’s most legendary instruments, the “Red Mendelssohn” Stradivarius of 1720, said to have inspired the Academy award-winning film The Red Violin.
