Thank you for your support of our community music programs!
Come Away to the Skies: A High Lonesome Mass was written by Tim Sharp and performed by ProMusica Arizona in their 2017 performance at Carnegie Hall. Accompanied by a spirited live bluegrass band, this piece is a unique combination incorporating the movements of a traditional mass, based on American folk songs, with a bluegrass flavor. The second half of the program will feature small instrumental and vocal ensembles from the Chorale and Orchestra with young guest artists as featured soloists, performing music from the Baroque period to present day. This is an experience not to be missed!
