MusicaNova Orchestra concludes this concert season by celebrating our year as artist-in-residence at Tempe High School with a selection of symphonic works inspired by the Mexican Mariachi tradition, named an Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity by the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO).

New York Public Radio (WQXR) calls MusicaNova Composition Fellow Julie Hill “truly magical.” A singer, composer, and teacher who graduated from the Manhattan School of Music (B.M., Classical Composition), she has taught at the Global Music Institute in New Delhi and is working with Gabriel Kahane on his record The Ambassador. Her compositions have been widely performed, including by the Philadelphia Ballet and at Yale University.  

MusicaNova Orchestra concerts are supported by grants from the Arizona Commission on the Arts and the City of Phoenix Office of Arts and Culture.
