“Let Music Live!”
ProMusica Arizona’s Opening Concert
ProMusica Arizona’s singers and instrumentalists are excited to be back and performing their first concert which is a celebration of all the joys that music brings to our lives. After a long hiatus due to the pandemic, musicians and audiences alike recognize how much they’ve missed live music presentations!
Opening with the stirring piece Come to the Music for chorale and orchestra, the concert then proceeds to The Awakening by Joseph Martin where the powerful text describes a world of silence and then erupts into the joyous exclamation, “Let music never die in me, forever let my spirit sing, let music live!” Bring a Song is about quarantined people in Italy who came to their windows and balconies to sing and play music for one another raising everyone’s spirits! The chorale and Women in Song continue these themes with other texts.
The orchestra will play Beethoven’s powerful “Egmont Overture” and rousing favorites including Brahms’ “Hungarian Dance #5” and a short Haydn symphony. The ensembles join together at the end with If Music Be the Food of Love which closes with this meaningful message: “Sing on! Sing on!”
Dates and Venues include: Saturday, October 16, 7 pm –Boulder Creek Performing Art Center, 40404 N. Gavilan Peak Pkwy, Anthem
