We play great new, neglected, and traditional symphonic music in ways you’ve never heard, introduce the finest new artists, and give you the greatest musical experience you’ve never had – yet!
The MusicaNova summer fund-raiser is off to a great start, passing the $1,500 milestone. That means we’ll already posted three thank you videos by our musicians on Facebook. Here you get principal clarinetist Kristin Fray with her multi-instrumental mash up of “I’ve Been Everywhere” and “Route 66.”
We’ll post a video like this for every $500 raised. Want to see another one? Donate here.
Thanks to Gary Moss, Carol Greenley, Irma Jurado, Carolyn Whitaker, John Friedeman, Susan Morris and three donors who wished to be anonymous for getting the fund-raiser off to such a great start.
Your donations will go twice as far, thanks to a challenge issued by David Connell, John Cleveland, Robert Leger, Elizabeth and John McKinnon, and Dominique van de Stadt and Octavio Pajaro, who are matching every donation through Aug. 11, up to a total of $9,000.
That means your $25 becomes $50, your $50 becomes $100, your $200 becomes $400.
Plus, your generosity enables MusicaNova to continue bringing you the best new, unjustly neglected and familiar music while nurturing promising young composers and providing educational outreach to underserved communities. Thanks for your support!
Hold these dates on your calendar. The MusicaNova season for 2021-22 is under construction. We’ll announce more details as they come together, but for now we know we’ll be playing:
We look forward to seeing you at a concert where you can experience the greatest music you’ve never heard – yet!
Enjoy these videos from the MNO Wind Quintet’s concert at MIM.
Sonoran-born composer Arturo Marquez wrote this piece in 1996. It incorporates Latin rhythms and fluid lines. The title reflects the composer’s belief that he wrote the piece in the middle or “noon” of his life.
This concert was underwritten by a grant from the Phoenix Office on Arts and Culture.
From Arizona State University graduate Theresa Martin’s program notes: “Life is like a long hallway with a series of doors. Some doors are open and easy to travel through… The hallway may seem like a confusing maze, and oftentimes you may get lost… Throughout your journey, you will experience inertia, trials, and periods of intense growth.”
This was the Arizona premiere for the piece, written in 2019 .
