On April 18th and 19th, ProMusica Arizona (PMAZ) will present a one-of-a-kind concert experience featuring classical music and audience participation. Bring your cell phones and be prepared to use them to help Henry Hicklebee choose the next stage in his journey of personal discovery. Where will he go? Russia? Spain? Will he discover romance? Adventure? Using cell phones to vote, audience members make the decisions that drive Henry’s adventures and the music of the concert.
Renowned actor and singer Matt Newhard brings Hicklebee to the stage. Under the direction of Artistic Director Adam Stich, Newhard, the orchestra and the chorale will prepare 40 songs for this concert—the audience will decide which songs will be heard. PMAZ Executive Director Yvonne Dolby says, “This concert is part of PMAZ’s commitment to live classical music presented in a way that engages audiences of all ages in today’s technology-driven world.”
The unique concert was recently awarded a $5,000 grant from the Arizona Art Tank. Competing against seven other arts groups, including the Phoenix Art Museum and the Musical Instrument Museum, in a January 12th event, PMAZ’s presentation team demonstrated the cell phone voting process, and thankfully It won over the Art Tank judges! We have no doubt it will win over concert-goers as they become a part of Hicklebee's musical adventures.
