PHOENIX – Celebrate America, ProMusica Arizona’s first concert of the 2019-20 season, will feature American music including Broadway favorites, cowboy and folk tunes, spirituals, patriotic music, and a salute to servicemen and women in the stirring piece Armed Forces: The Pride of America! These recognizable and uniquely American music selections, including Copland’s Fanfare for the Common Man, Irving Berlin’s America, a tribute to John Williams compositions, “On the Trail” from the Grand Canyon Suite, and a medley of music from MGM films will remind the audience of our great country’s history and development!
The music throughout the concert will be enhanced by visual elements on large screens in the venue. Members of the non-profit organization, Youth for Troops, will serve as flag bearers for an impressive display of “Old Glory” during the singing of the military songs when active and retired members of the various military branches will be asked to stand and be recognized.
