ProMusica’s ensemble receives grant from Peoria for free public performances

PHOENIX – ProMusica Arizona’s (PMAZ) vocal ensemble, Women in Song, has been awarded $4,400 by the City of Peoria to offer free performances at public venues and senior communities in Peoria during the 2019-2020 season.

Supported by the grant, Women in Song will be featured performers at Sunrise Mountain Library and Peoria Main Library in March for celebrations of the 100th anniversary of Peoria libraries. The public is invited to attend.

Women in Song performances also are being scheduled at senior living facilities in Peoria.

Peoria has a robust arts program with a mission to enhance the quality of life in the community by fostering and supporting cultural opportunities for both local artists and the general public. In addition to support for the performing arts, Peoria has an extensive collection of public art displays throughout the city.

The Women in Song ensemble consists of an accompanist and up to 16 talented singers, many with music degrees and professional singing experience.

Members for the ensemble are chosen through an audition process, and the group is directed by PMAZ’s Artistic Director and Principal Conductor, Patti Graetz, who has over 30 years of singing and conducting experience.

The ensemble’s repertoire includes jazz, Broadway show tunes, holiday music and a variety of sacred and secular songs.

Senior communities or public venues interested in booking Women in Song for a free performance in the City of Peoria can contact Patti Graetz at pgraetz@pmaz.org. For more details about PMAZ’s performance schedule or the Women in Song’s free performances visit PMAZ.org.
