A Note from Ilona Kubiaczyk-Adler, Artistic Director
The third season of Arts at Nativity is here! As in the previous years we are mixing old and new, classical music of the West and East with folk and jazz. We are thrilled to announce that we secured some of the finest, most recognized and internationally acclaimed artists from the Valley.
Joseph Wytko’s “vivid projection, effortless precision, charm and savoir–faire” were praised by the New York Times, and the Arizona Republic described him simply as “flawless.” Qais Essar’s recent appearances at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C., and at the Sikh Heritage Month festival in Toronto, Canada, have expanded the reach of his unique musical message. American opera singers tenor Mitchell Sturges and soprano Dori Scholer will bring their broad performing experience gained also at European stages.
We will celebrate Christmas with a passionate and energetic concert of Vocal Ensemble under UofA alumnus Michael Frongillo, and with a performance of excerpts from Handel’s “Messiah” following the well-established American Yuletide tradition. Solis Camerata choir, comprised of some of the finest singers in the Valley, will collaborate with Bartholomew Faire to bring a program of early dance music. Grand Canyon University Trio will saturate our senses with refined classical music for clarinet, bassoon and piano.
Don’t miss our annual Veterans and Martin Luther King Day celebrations!
Our space is intimate; you will have an opportunity to hear and see the artists up close as they perform. After each concert, enjoy refreshments and a time to talk with performers and fellow listeners. We look forward to seeing you!
