ProMusica receives grant from Scottsdale League for the Arts

ProMusica Arizona Chorale and Orchestra has received a grant for $1,000 from the Scottsdale League for the Arts.

The grant will help support PMAZ’s objective to expose young people to live music performances by providing free tickets for those 15 and under accompanied by an adult and free rush tickets for students 16-22 years old 15 minutes prior to concerts based on seating availability.

The Scottsdale League for the Arts raises funds to support the arts and arts education programs through its annual signature event, the Scottsdale Culinary Festival, among others.  One hundred percent of the net proceeds of activities support the League’s grants program for a wide range of nonprofit arts organizations in Maricopa County.

Grants are awarded on a competitive basis for arts education and outreach including opportunities for children to experience the visual and performing arts.

PMAZ Board Chair Jan Sandoz said, “Since PMAZ’s beginnings 16 years ago, one of our missions has been to give children and young adults a way to develop an appreciation for musical performances from an early age. This generous grant from the Scottsdale League for the Arts helps us fulfill that mission.”

PMAZ Chorale and Orchestra’s 2018-19 season includes three concerts including the Arizona Premiere of “Mountain Days: The John Muir Musical in Concert” in March 2019. Visit www.pmaz.org for more information and for concert tickets.

PMAZ is a 501(c) (3) nonprofit organization and is supported by the Arizona Commission on the Arts, which receives support from the State of Arizona and the National Endowment for the Arts.
