Live music returns! An update
on MusicaNova’s 2020-21 season
MusicaNova musicians will soon be back on stage or in your homes, bringing you the new, familiar and neglected music you’ve come to expect from our orchestra. Highlights:
Classical Lounge curated by MusicNova Orchestra
The Scottsdale Center for the Performing Arts hosts a series of Sunday afternoon cool classical concerts showcasing MusicaNova musicians in a casual, informal setting beginning Oct. 25.
- Jan 31. “Wings of Hope,” with music by Copland, Schreker and Sibelius. 2 p.m. Scottsdale Center for the Performing Arts.
- March 28: “Stabat Mater,” Music Director Warren Cohen’s creative combination of settings by Bach and Pergolesi. Scottsdale Presbyterian Church. Free; donations accepted.
Musical Instrument Museum, dates to be announced.
Watch from home
Two videos produced for those who aren’t yet ready to return to the concert hall:
- “Seasons for the Season” combines Vivaldi’s “Four Seasons” with short reflection pieces, several by minority composers, that address the challenges of our times. Release expected in the fall.
- Seth Bärtschi plays all nine parts of Eric Ewazen’s “Concertino” for bass trombone and trombone choir. Look for this video in late October.
