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.

Let Music Live!

Let Music Live!

October 16 and 17, 2021
 
Exploring the joy that music brings to our lives, the first concert of our 19th season contains both celebration and contemplation. The program begins with “Come to the Music.” Next, “The Awakening” for choir and orchestra by Joseph Martin describes a world of silence, 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 this theme throughout the concert, singing texts about how music touches our lives. The orchestra will play Beethoven’s powerful “Egmont Overture,” a short Haydn symphony, and other rousing favorites. As the finale, the combined ensembles will perform “If Music be the Food of Love, Sing On!” Click here for tickets or call (623) 326-5172. Tickets also available at the door.
 
Patrons are asked to wear masks until seated. Seats will be marked to allow for social distancing.

Misa Azteca

Misa Azteca

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. This concert is in collaboration with the Carolyn Eynon Singers. Click here for tickets or call (623) 326-5172.
