ProMusica Arizona Chorale & Orchestra Announces 19th Season

After a year of online concerts, we are back in front of live audiences! Join us for an outstanding season of choral and orchestral music.

Ticketing and venue information will be available shortly; watch this space!

Let Music Live!

Let Music Live!

October 16 and 17, 2021
 
Celebrating the joy that music brings to our lives, the first concert of our 19th season will move from contemplation to celebration. Opening with “The Awakening” for choir and orchestra by Joseph Martin, the powerful text describes a world of silence and then erupts into the joyous exclamation, “Let music never die in me, forever let my spirit sing, let music live!” The Chorale and Women in Song will continue with this theme throughout the concert singing “If Music Be the Food of Love,” “Come to the Music,” and other texts about how music touches our lives. The orchestra will play Beethoven’s powerful “Egmont Overture” and rousing favorites including Brahms’ “Hungarian Dance #5” and a short Haydn symphony. The ensembles will join together at the end for a meaningful finale.
An Arizona Holiday

An Arizona Holiday

December 4 and 5, 2021
 
Our December concert this year will feature traditional festive holiday fare as well as works by Arizona composers, most with a connection to ProMusica Arizona. Arrangements of well-known Christmas carols by our own Aaron Smith (tenor section leader), Frank Darmiento (trombone), Dana Graybeal (retired music teacher – Thunderbird HS and Phoenix College), and Craig Bohmler (Riders of the Purple Sage composer and ProMusica Arizona friend) are sure to delight. Cowboy boots and hats encouraged!
Musical Champagne Salon

Musical Champagne Salon

March 19, 2022
 
ProMusica Arizona’s 4th Annual Musical Champagne Salon brings together music lovers for an elegant evening in an exquisite private home. Guests will be treated to musical performances by talented ProMusica Arizona vocalists and instrumentalists throughout the evening. Heavy hors d’oeuvres, decadent desserts, champagne, wine, and other beverages will be served, and a silent auction sure to pique everyone’s interest will complete this “not to be missed” fundraising event.
Misa Azteca

Misa Azteca

April 2 and 3, 2022
 
Misa Azteca is a staged, concert piece for orchestra, choir, soloists, and pre-Columbian percussion ensemble. It is based on the “ordinary” and “proper” of the Roman Catholic High Mass and verses from the Cantares Mexicanos, a collection of pre- and post-conquest verse of the Mexica (the Aztecs). Misa Azteca is sung in Latin, Spanish, and Nahuatl. Misa Azteca hybridizes two cultures and religions into an eight-movement, oratorio-style, musical celebration for orchestra, choir, and soloists.
