The 2023-24 season marks ProMusica Arizona’s 21st performance year. ProMusica Arizona ensembles perform a wide variety of repertoire from classical to popular, including major works and concert versions of musicals. Performances often include visual elements to enhance the concert experience. The multi-generational Chorale and Orchestra consists of volunteer community members, supplemented with professional musicians as needed.  Ensemble members are encouraged to audition for solo parts and roles.

ProMusica Arizona Artistic Director and Principal Conductor, Patti Graetz, who has more than 30 years of conducting and performing experience, will be assisted by professionals mentoring community musicians in a challenging but supportive environment. Community musicians will perform alongside professionals in concerts throughout the season.



All voices are welcome to audition. Vocalists should be able to read music and have experience in choral singing.

The assessment will include a few vocal exercises to test your range. Afterwards, you will sing one verse of “America, the Beautiful” (O, Beautiful for Spacious Skies). This should take no more than five minutes. Please be sure to arrive a few minutes early to warm-up beforehand.

For “America, the Beautiful” tone quality, diction, breath control and pitch will be assessed. The standard key is B-flat, first note is F,  which is fine for altos and basses. Sopranos and tenors, you will sing in the key of D, so your starting note is A. You may be asked to sing in other keys.

You will sing the melody – a cappella – and also your part – with piano –  if you are an alto, tenor or bass. Here is a link to the music:

ProMusica Arizona is a community volunteer organization. While PMAZ ticket sales and donations cover 70-75% of the costs associated with membership in the Chorale and Orchestra, singers and instrumentalists pay dues to help cover expenses including music, directors, rehearsal space and accompanist. The Board of Directors sets dues annually at an amount that covers 25-30% of participation costs. For the 2022-23 season, dues are $195. Dues can be split into two payments, or special arrangements can be made upon request. Members also are responsible for the cost of their concert attire.
