Our first concert of the season will pay tribute to the achievements of American explorers from the first adventurous souls who pushed westward across the continent to modern-day space travelers. ProMusica Arizona is commissioning and will perform the world premiere of a piece composed by Dr. Timothy Michael Powell commemorating our space program and the people who made outer space exploration a reality. Music will be set to the inspirational words of astronaut Buzz Aldrin, astronomer Carl Sagan, and teacher Christa McAuliffe, first American civilian selected to go into space and who tragically perished pursuing a nation’s dream.

Christmas is a time of celebration and song! Brighten your holiday season with an afternoon or evening in music with ProMusica Arizona. This year’s holiday concert will feature beautiful sacred and secular classics with two major works being featured amongst other perennial Christmas favorites. The first is Bach’s Magnificat – a baroque masterpiece scored for five vocal parts with orchestra accompaniment and consisting of eleven movements from the text of Luke 1:46-55. And what holiday concert would be complete without soldiers marching, snowflakes waltzing, and a sugar plum fairy dancing in our minds to selections from Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker Suite?

Avery special concert for the finale of our 15th anniversary season. ProMusica Arizona singers will be joined on stage by church choirs for over 100 voices performing Sunrise Mass by modern composer Ola Gjeilo. The hauntingly beautiful arrangement for choir and strings can only be described as sublime. The orchestra takes the spotlight in the second half of the concert with Mendelssohn’s Violin Concerto in E minor. The three movement concerto with solo violin took over six years to write, was first performed in 1845, and has since become one of the most popular and most frequently performed violin concertos in history. It’s a piece worthy of our 15th anniversary celebration and not to be missed.
