When is the last time you heard something great for the first time? Probably at a MusicaNova concert!
Thanks to all of you who made the MusicaNova 2014-2015 Season a smashing artistic success; there’s even more for you in the year to come!
Our 2015-2016 Orchestra Concert Series features great new works and some very well known ones. We’ll be doing two world premieres from our Composition Fellows in November and January, and in April we’ll take on the massive Shostakovich Seventh Symphony “Leningrad” with the help of 25 outstanding young musicians from our educational partner schools.
Our critically acclaimed Young Artists Series had a remarkable season with an astounding level of virtuosity exhibited by players from age 9 to 17. Two of last season’s young artists will be featured soloists with the Orchestra this season. The 2015-2016 Collaborative Concerts Series covers the world with music from three continents, and the debut of the MusicaNova Chamber Orchestra in February. And this season we’re adding a full slate of Salon Concerts, intimately presented in the homes of friends of MusicaNova.
MusicaNova’s education programs are growing rapidly. We’re now formal partners with four schools for our outreach visits, and will be welcoming 25 student musicians for the Shostakovich Seven concert in April. We expect to reach over 3,000 students and faculty this season. Our Composition Fellows Program is going strong in its second year, with a true local prodigy in November and an exciting and innovative composer from the Eastman School in January. Arizona Science Center’s planetarium show featuring music and narration by MusicaNova debuted in June and we’re looking forward to many more collaborative productions with them and others.
All this means an even greater need for your ongoing support, both by your attendance and your donations. See our entire season schedule on our website. And while you’re there you can make a one-time donation or set up monthly contributions, let the shopping you already do at Amazon.Com or Fry’s Food Stores benefit us, and give through special events like Birdies for Charity. We promise you won’t be disappointed!
