It's our 20th Season. And YOU made it possible.

MusicaNova Orchestra

What to expect in 2022-23

You’ll hear highlights from the first 19 seasons, including a piece played at the very first concert (watch Warren’s full video to find out which one). Former Concertmaster Christiano Rodrigues will return to play the Schumann Violin Concerto. You’ll hear a string orchestra play entirely on open strings.


We’re teaming with the ASU Center for Jewish Studies to bring back author and radio host Martin Goldsmith for a spectacular multimedia program that opens with the movie Winter Journey, one man’s story of love, music and resiliency in an all-Jewish orchestra amid the persecution of 1930s Germany. In the second half, MusicaNova performs the last piece the Jewish orchestra rehearsed, Nielsen’s Inextinguishable Symphony, and is joined by local choirs for Sibelius’ magnificent Finlandia.


Continuing our commitment to encouraging young classical musicians from underserved communities, we’re planning a joint concert with Harmony Project Phoenix featuring the music of Arturo Marquez and other south-of-the-border composers.


We look forward to seeing you in the audience.

You Make the Music Possible - and We Need Your Help


We ask for your continued financial support. Unlike most community orchestras in the Valley, we pay our musicians. Combined with the opportunity to play fresh repertoire, this attracts the best musicians in the Valley. You enjoy fine performances as a result. 


But ticket sales and grants don’t cover all the costs of bringing you these wonderful concerts. We depend on you to make up the difference.


To celebrate our 20th anniversary, please join our 20 Days for 20 Seasons fund-raiser. Give $20, if that’s what you can afford. Or $120. Or $200. Or more.


And we’ll share mementos from our first two decades with you (while supplies last):


  • For $120, receive MusicaNova’s CD of Richard Arnell’s Symphonies 4 & 5, released on the Con Brio label.
  • For $200, receive the Arnell CD and another CD, DVD or BluRay from our first 19 seasons.
  • For $400, receive a MusicaNova T-shirt in addition to the above.
  • For $1,000, sponsor a section principal chair (and get all the goodies above).
  • For $20,000, be the name sponsor for the entire 20th season.


Every donation helps. Every donation makes it possible for us to bring you the best in new, unjustly neglected and familiar music, with a twist. 


You can make donations online at this link or send a check to MusicaNova, 610 E. Bell Road, Suite 2-552, Phoenix, AZ 85022.
