A Note from Executive Artistic Director, Marc Gaston
Our 2012/2013 Season A Change Is Coming – Break The Illusion was a great success. Our flagship group, the Phoenix Metropolitan Men’s Chorus, has reached new performing heights coming off this last season. The addition of Omaggio Youth Chorus this last season was a triumph. We have truly grown by leaps and bounds in our artistic excellence and are finding our niche as an exciting “Show Chorus” in the Phoenix valley!
On June 23, 2013, we will be finalizing our season with a joint concert in Tucson, combining our voices with Arizona Women In Tune, Voices of the Desert, Desert Voices and Reveille.
Our planned performances for our upcoming season are full-scale productions that combine singing, theatre, dance, and the region’s leading professional talent along with nationally renowned guest artists.
Do you want to be a part of our new upcoming season? There are many ways you can participate.
Phoenix Metropolitan Men’s Chorus is our flagship chorus. Our auditions will be held in August 2013 for this prestigious group of male voices.
Canyon Echoes is our small vocal ensemble made up of selected members of PMMC. This group has its own concert series and acts as the vocal ambassadors for PMMC. Auditions will also be held in August for open positions.
Omaggio Youth Chorus is a great way for young men and women to participate in a great performing arts organization. We are looking for singers, dancers and entertainers from all styles. Omaggio ranges from ages 14 to 22. Come bring your talents and perform with us.
Phoenix Metropolitan Philharmonic Ensemble is a great way to lend your instrumental skills to our chorus’ vocal ensembles. We are looking for Reed (Oboe, flute, sax, etc.), Trumpet, Trombone, Violin, Viola, Cello, Bass, Guitar, Drums and Percussion.
Our Fifth Section is a great way to participate behind the scenes. We are looking for Set Designers, Lighting Designers, Tech Crew, Box Office Support, Ushers and Stage Hands.
Grand Canyon Performing Arts is more than a performing arts show chorus. In addition to the high level of performances produced, we are also a “voice of acceptance” within our community!
Together, we hope to ultimately cross boundaries between straight and gay in order to unite, inspire and educate.
By performing with us, attending our concerts and events, or becoming a donor or sponsor, you are not only entertained and blessed, but you are directly participating in helping to create a more tolerant and empowering community that encourages everyone to "sing to their own song."
