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).
Mariachi-inspired symphonic works, including Heitor Villa Lobos, Bachianas Brasilieras no.4, Alberto Ginastera, Estancia Suite, and José Pablo Moncayo, Huapango. There’s also the world premiere of Composition Fellow Julie Hill’s Waves.
Featuring student musicians from Tempe high schools.
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.
Recorded live on April 23, 2017 at the Central United Methodist Church in Phoenix, Arizona
