The Pinnacle Concert Series will be hosting two upcoming concerts in April, presented by Musical Director Brent Hylton at the Pinnacle Presbyterian Church in Scottsdale.

The Ocotillo Winds will perform at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, April 8. The Ocotillo Winds are a refreshingly entertaining breeze from the desert Southwest, according to a press release. Their fast-paced programs are packed with the dynamic energy of three virtuosos: oboist Martin Schuring, clarinetist Robert Spring and bassoonist Albie Micklich. With repertoire from the French countryside, the Brazilian rainforest and downtown Phoenix, their concerts are anything but dry. General admission is $20; student tickets are free.

The second concert will be 7:30 p.m. on Friday, April 15, featuring Organized Rhythm. Organized Rhythm is Clive Driskill-Smith, a young English organist sensation and Joseph Gramley, a young American percussion virtuoso, who have teamed up to present organ and percussion in a whole new way, the release stated.

Performing unique arrangements of classical masterpieces, such as Gustav Host’s “The Planets” and Saint-Saëns’ “Carnival of the Animals,” the duo displays passion, technical mastery and precision as they take audiences on a musical adventure. This concert is certain to please young and old alike with a blend of well-prepared music and entertaining humor, the release stated.

Premium seating is $35, general admission is $20 and students are free.

The Pinnacle Presbyterian Church is located at 25150 N. Pima Road in Scottsdale. For more information and to purchase tickets visit
