Arizona Opera, now in its 43rd Season, produces fully-staged operas, concerts, and collaborative programs throughout the state of Arizona each season. We are among only a handful of companies in the United States that regularly performs in more than one city.  On stage, Arizona Opera presents artists of both international stature and emerging talent, and each season balances debut artists and the return of favorite performers. Arizona’s musical talent is showcased in its acclaimed orchestra and chorus.

Winning a Grammy Award for arranging was nice. But the really valuable "awards” I get come in the form of opportunities to write good music for wonderful musicians. If you wish, you can check out a few of these on my website.

 

We do Wedding Ceremonies, Cocktail Hours/Reception background music; corporate parties and events.

This is a Woodwind Trio that specializes in our own unique arrangements of wedding favorites, popular songs, show tunes, and classical selections.

The Phoenix Symphony has been proudly serving the citizens of the Phoenix metropolitan area and Arizona since 1947. What began as an occasional group of musicians performing a handful of concerts each year (in a city of fewer than 100,000 people) today serves more than 300,000 people annually, with almost 200 concerts and presentations throughout the greater Phoenix area and beyond.

Benefits of Membership

Music Performance Fund

The Music Performance Fund (MPF), a non-profit, tax-exempt public service organization under section 501 (c) of the Internal Revenue Code. Headquartered in New York City, MPF is the world's largest sponsor of live, admission-free musical programs. Last year, MPF presented over 10,000 performances to the people of the United States and Canada. Millions of people in major U.S. and Canadian cities and villages enjoyed instrumental music of high quality without having to buy a ticket or belong to an organization in order to gain admittance. The Fund was established in 1948 by the recording companies of North America and the American Federation of Musicians as part of their collective bargaining agreement. A small royalty on the sale of some recorded music is contributed to the Fund by signatory recording companies, and these funds are supplemented by co-sponsoring organizations. There is never an admission charge for MPF performances, and its performances cannot be used to raise money, sell merchandise, or promote political or religious events
