Local Musicians Wanted: ProMusica

For 15 years, In&Out Magazine has been the definitive source of “Everything that’s going on” in and out of the community. We thank you, our readers, as well as the businesses that support the magazine through advertising, for that opportunity. But with little going on, and many businesses suspending or canceling their ads during the Covid-19 crisis, we are suspending publication of the magazine and web sites for the month of May. 


PMAZ —ProMusica Arizona invites professional and community singers and instrumentalists to audition for the Chorale and Orchestra for the second half of the performance season. Auditions appointments can be scheduled by contacting Patti Graetz at pgraetz@pmaz.org or by calling or texting (602) 570-4458.

The 2019-20 season marks ProMusica Arizona’s 17th performance year. ProMusica Arizona ensembles perform a wide variety of repertoire from classical to popular, including major works and concert versions of musicals. Performances often include visual elements to enhance the concert experience. The multi-generational Chorale and Orchestra consists of volunteer community members, supplemented with professional musicians as needed.  Ensemble members are encouraged to audition for solo parts and roles.

ProMusica Arizona Artistic Director and Principal Conductor, Patti Graetz, who has more than 30 years of conducting and performing experience, will be assisted by professionals mentoring community musicians in a challenging but supportive environment. Community musicians will perform alongside professionals in concerts throughout the season.
