Upcoming 2019-20 Season Concerts
ProMusica Arizona board and staff members have been closely monitoring the COVID-19 situation as it unfolds. After much consideration and conversation regarding the risks and uncertainty surrounding the crisis, we have decided the safest course of action for our audience members, musicians, volunteers, and staff is to cancel our April 4 and 5 performances of Latin Spice. While it’s disappointing that we won’t be able to bring this magnificent production to you at this time, it will be rescheduled for another time in the future. For a ticket refund, voucher for a future concert, or to donate the amount of your ticket purchase to ProMusica Arizona, contact Yvonne Dolby at email@example.com or 623-326-5172. Thank you for your understanding and support of our community music programs!
Latin Spice: Misa Azteca is a Mariachi-style full mass setting for choir and orchestra, ethnic percussion and guitar, and sung in Latin, Spanish and Nahuati (native Aztec). The Carolyn Eynon Singers will be joining ProMusica Arizona for this cultural celebration. Latin influenced music, including Leroy Anderson’s Blue Tango and Cole Porter’s Night and Day, will round out the program, finishing with the rousing finale from Gilbert and Sullivan’s operetta The Gondoliers.
April 4 at 7:00 pm at Cross of Christ Lutheran Church in Anthem
April 5 at 3:30 pm at American Lutheran Church in Sun City
Baroque to Bluegrass: PMAZ’s final concert of the season includes Come Away to the Skies: A High Lonesome Mass written by Tim Sharp and performed by PMAZ 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!
