20th Anniversary Celebration
The season concluded with ProMusica Arizona’s 20th Anniversary Celebration featuring the world-premiere of Saguaro Song by Arizona composer Craig Bohmler, well-known for Arizona Opera’s Riders of the Purple Sage. Saguaro Song is a suite of five songs for choir and orchestra with texts by award-winning Canadian author Marion Adler who uses the iconic saguaro cactus as a metaphor for the seasons of life. In addition, ProMusica Arizona presented A World Without Boundaries by Timothy Powell with texts by American astronauts. The piece was commissioned for ProMusica Arizona’s 15th anniversary season. Morten Lauridsen’s “Sure on This Shining Night,” Ola Gjielo’s “Sunrise” (“Gloria”) from Sunrise Mass, and other musical gems were featured to round out the festivities.
