ProMusica's "An Arizona Holiday" Dec. 4 & 5

ProMusica concertmaster Meghan Ruel

ProMusica Arizona’s musicians, under the direction of Patti Graetz, are excited to present “An Arizona Holiday” in early December to begin the holiday season.  The concert will feature traditional festive holiday fare as well as works by Arizona composers, most with a connection to ProMusica Arizona. Included are arrangements of well-known Christmas carols by ProMusica’s own Aaron Smith (tenor section leader), Frank Darmiento (trombone), and Dana Graybeal (retired music teacher at Thunderbird High School and Phoenix College).  Also included is holiday music celebrated by a number of cultures in “Winter Celebrations,” by Arizona composer Craig Bohmler of “Riders of the Purple Sage” fame and ProMusica Arizona friend. “An Arizona Holiday” is sure to delight the whole family!

“An Arizona Holiday” is sponsored by Andrew Z Diamonds & Fine Jewelry in Anthem, AZ. Visit their website at
