Scottsdale Philharmonic Dec. 7 concert honors Pearl Harbor anniversary

Scottsdale PhilharmonicFollowing two previous successful seasons of capacity audiences, Scottsdale Philharmonic presents the second concert of its third season, an annual benefit concert for veterans at the the Scottsdale Center for the Performing Arts.

The concert takes place 4 p.m. Dec. 7 at the Scottsdale Center for Performing Arts, 7380 E. Second St., Scottsdale.

The Scottsdale Philharmonic orchestra will showcase its artistic excellence performing moving and inspiring works by the classic composers Borodin, Mozart, Anderson and Delibes, with entertainment by the Royal Renaissance Singers during intermission.

In honor of the anniversary of Pearl Harbor, a Military Color Guard will do a special presentation of the colors preceding the concert. The concert will also feature stirring presentations of “God Bless America” and “Eternal Father Strong to Save,” the Navy Hymn.

Adding to the enjoyment of the symphony concert presentation, Scottsdale Philharmonic has partnered with Arizona Arts Alliance in a creative collaboration entitled “Concerts & Canvas” to bring audiences world class music along with collectable fine art. A display of fine art works from local artists, including some from military veteran artists, will be on display in the center’s atrium.

Tickets for the special benefit concert are $15 and provide reserved seating.

The Scottsdale Philharmonic orchestra is made up of all volunteer musicians.

Tickets are available online at scottsdaleperformingarts.org or calling 480-499-8587.
