Arizona Philharmonic's season offers a wide breadth of experiences while expressing our hope and flexibility during these unusual times. The Music Without Walls concerts are at the outdoor Highland Center Amphitheater nestled in the tall pines with excellent acoustics.  The intimate Highlights concerts feature an Arizona Philharmonic musician with a musician friend or two, sharing some of their favorite instruments, music, and stories. In the Menagerie concerts, fabulous soloists perform with a handful of Arizona Philharmonic musicians to mix the Classical music tradition with other styles. The larger Baroque and Beyond concerts feature classics from the Baroque period and beautiful works from later eras.

Baroque and Beyond Series | love : sorrow : joy
Sunday, May 2 | 3:00 PM   
Yavapai College Performing Arts Center | 1100 E Sheldon St, Prescott AZ 86301

Bach, Vivaldi, Vaughan Williams and Pärt…The word Baroque means the juxtaposition of elements; the tension of two emotions. This synthesis of emotions was a hallmark of composers of the 17th and 18th-centuries. Composers of the 20th-century also found inspiration in the joining of two disparate parts to create unique worlds of sound. Join musicians from Arizona Philharmonic, a 12-voice professional choir, baritone soloist Steven Berlanga, and guest conductor Joshua Harper as we explore the balance of old and new, choir and orchestra.  (Artwork by Bryan Robertson)
