TICKETS El Recuerdo

The Arts at Nativity team is excited to announce our 2021–2022 concert series. Curated by our outgoing Artistic Director, Dr. Juliana Witt, the season includes mainstays of past years – the Veterans Day Concert, Martin Luther King Jr. Day Concert, and plenty of wonderful chamber music – along with some pleasant surprises!
Juliana Witt brings her chamber music group Dionysus to the stage in October to perform illuminating works for two saxophones and piano. You also won’t want to miss the return of the dynamic trio Salonnières for an interactive holiday treat based on the white elephant gift-giving tradition. (White elephant gifts provided – leave that $5 Kenny G album at home.)
Perhaps the most exciting feature of the season is the Celebrating Women in the Arts Festival. This three-day event during Women’s History Month will feature music composed and performed by women for all to enjoy! It’s our way of saying thank you to those women past and present who have dedicated their lives to artistic endeavors, yet remain tragically under-programmed in the realm of classical music. Double-header concerts on Saturday and Sunday will give patrons a chance to explore displays of visual art by local female artists between sets.
We close out the season on a nostalgic note, with reflective yet captivating music for flute and piano by living composers Joseph Schwantner and Yuko Uebayshi. And lastly, a delightful pairing of classics from two beloved schools of repertoire – Italian bel canto and Mexican mariachi – sung by Nogales’ own Edgar Ricaud, a rising star in the opera world.
We know you will enjoy this year’s concert series. Most of all, we hope that you will purchase a season ticket, the most significant way to support us,
in addition to your donations. We hope you won't miss a single one of these wonderful programs!
Thank you for your support! We couldn’t do it without your generous backing.
