In a fitting conclusion to a season paying tribute to our great nation, ProMusica Arizona is honored to be providing the music for the Memorial Day Ceremony at the Anthem Veterans Memorial.

After a year exploring the dreams of the American people, we ended the 2015-16 performance season by paying tribute to the 100th Anniversary of America's National Parks. The concert featured music inspired by the various regions along with photographs and video footage of the National Parks and their majestic beauty.
Audiences raved about the March performances of From Broadway to B.B. King as we celebrated two of the most iconic of American music forms – Broadway musicals and Jazz. Selections included Swing and Delta Blues, music of legendary jazz musician B.B. King, and Broadway favorites from the ‘50s and ‘60s through modern mega-hits Les Miserables and Wicked. Jazz great Dennis Rowland, Herberger Theater Center Hall of Fame recipient and former voice of the world-renowned Count Basie Orchestra, was a highlight of this exciting concert.
