The Prescott Chorale and Prescott Pops Symphony are ready to welcome audiences
The sounds of music have returned!
After more than a year and a half of canceled events and entertainment, the reemergence of live concerts has begun. There is no shortage of happy, eager attendees ready and willing to welcome back that which was sorely missed: the feeling of camaraderie, delight, exhilaration, and that sometimes-irrepressible urge to dance in our seats or sing along with the music we love. Yes, folks: Two of your favorites are back.
The first group to welcome audiences is the ever-popular Prescott Chorale, which began the 2021-2022 season in October with a moving program of music that included “A Serenade to Music” by Ralph Vaughan Williams and Dan Forrest’s “Requiem for the Living.” It was an inspiring performance with an audience thrilled by not only the return of live music but the talented voices of an incredible chorale.
Artistic Director Dennis Houser always puts together two fabulous holiday concerts – the Chorale will perform “Sing Noel” on December 18 at 2:30 and 7:30 p.m. Expect to hear a variety in both concerts. They will leave you filled with the Christmas spirit.
The Chorale’s fourth and final concert of the season will be “Mozart and More” on April 23, 2022. Mozart’s rarely performed “Coronation Mass” will be a work of harmony and beauty to look forward to.
What better way for the Prescott Pops Symphony to return than with “The Sound of Joy,” on December 12 at 3:00 p.m.? Together, Maestro Joseph Place, Associate Conductor Ryan Gastonguay, and Choral Director, Darrell Rowader join in presenting the Pops Symphony and Pops Chorus in a musical celebration of well-loved, festive Christmas favorites. This concert is a Prescott tradition and always sells out.
Another Prescott tradition for Valentine’s Day: On February 13, 2022, there will be no mistaking the musical strains of love as they conjure feelings of passion, beauty, and excitement when the Pops presents “The Sound of Love.” The orchestra and guest performers sing and play a variety of selections from Rachmaninoff and music of the theater, in styles ranging from traditional to jazz.
Maestro Joseph Place brings you the return of the popular “Prescott Pops Picks” concert on May 22, 2022. Have you ever wondered what symphony musicians like to listen to or play when they’re not in concert? Get to know some of the players on a more personal level and enjoy their thrilling orchestral pops selections! This concert will be a fun change of pace and thoroughly enjoyable.
Join the Prescott Pops Symphony and the Prescott Chorale for extraordinary musical entertainment.
