Arizona's newest ensemble, the Arizona Chamber Orchestra announces its next concert series, Gershwin's PORGY AND BESS SUITE March 31 to April 2 performed at Mesa Arts Center, Tempe Center for the Arts and the Musical Instrument Museum. This enchanting program brings some of the most beloved melodies in the repertoire to the Valley music halls that have been recognized for their acoustic purity and brilliance.
