The Scottsdale Philharmonic Orchestra received a standing ovation for its May 2 concert at the Scottsdale Center for the Performing Arts. 

According to Scottsdale Philharmonic co-founder Joy Partridge, the program was magical and filled with passion, as stated in the release.

“All of our musicians were elated to perform and present our first concert of the season," Ms. Partridge stated. "Our next concert is Jun. 27 and will be 4th of July themed--it will be spectacular."

Ms. Partridge added the orchestra has two other upcoming shows on Oct. 10 and Nov. 21 and tickets will be available to purchase for a donation of $15 in the near future.

The Oct. 10 concert will feature “Reformation Symphony” by Felix Mendelssohn, “Crown Diamond Overture” by Daniel Auber, and “La Bohème Quando m'en vo” by Giancomo Puccini with a soprano solo by Melissa Solomon.

The Nov. 21 concert will feature “Trumpet Concerto” by Joseph Haydn with trumpet solo by Gage Ellis, and “Symphony No. 2” by Johannes Brahms.

Local musicians to play at Scottsdale Philharmonic Youth Orchestra concerts

The Scottsdale Philharmonic Youth Orchestra, SPYO, has been doing amazing things with its music director Dr. Daniel Atwood, Ms. Partridge stated in the release. 

The SPYO, under the direction of Dr.  Atwood, was started in 2019. 

Dr. Atwood announced that SPYO concerts will feature appearances of three Phoenix-area musicians during its upcoming 2021-2022 season.

“The interest in auditions this year is remarkable,” Dr. Atwood stated. 

The live auditions for the 2021-2022 season will be on Saturday, May 15 and Saturday, Oct. 9 at 10 a.m. 

“Our youth orchestra is for students grade 7 to 12 who want to learn to be great orchestra players,” Dr. Atwood explained in the release.

Tuition for the orchestra is $100 per year with practices, rehearsals and concerts taking place at the New Vision Center for Spiritual Living in Phoenix.
