elizabeth pitcairnProMusica Arizona is thrilled to welcome one of America’s most celebrated violinists, Elizabeth Pitcairn, for her first performance in Arizona. Ms. Pitcairn performs in partnership with one of the world’s most legendary instruments, the “Red Mendelssohn” Stradivarius of 1720, said to have inspired the Academy award-winning film "The Red Violin." This intimate evening in a marvelous setting at the Phoenix Art Museum is limited to 80 people. Those attendees will have a live musical experience of a lifetime as Ms. Pitcairn shares the stories and the sounds in recital with this magnificent historical instrument.

Many have said that the violin has finally found its true soul mate in the gifted hands of the young violinist who is the first known solo artist to ever bring it to the great concert halls of the world. Only 80 people will have this rare, up-close-and-personal opportunity in Arizona. Guests will be served hors d'oeuvres and wine, and will have access to the art galleries adjoining the reception area. Tickets are $200. For ticket information, please call Yvonne Dolby at 623-326-5172 or email ydolby@pmaz.org.
