Every composer has a muse, a person, a place, or a memory that inspires them to express their perception of the world through music. On Saturday, January 26th, your Anchorage Symphony offers an evening of great Musical Perceptions.  From satire on English society to Arctic adventures to an artistic departure - it is an evening showcasing varying perspectives and perceptions.

Ella Fitzgerald Tribute to Ella
Her soulful voice and signature style earned Ella  Fitzgerald the moniker “First Lady of Song.” More than 20 years after her passing, she still tops the Billboard jazz charts. On Saturday, February 9th your Anchorage Symphony honors this jazz legend with A Tribute to Ella, featuring vocal powerhouses and Broadway veterans Aisha de Haas and Capathia Jenkins.

AS BugFREE Neighborhood Concert
On Saturday, January 19th, bring the family to hear your Anchorage Symphony perform in YOUR neighborhood.  Enjoy works including Echoes, featuring dancers and drummers from the Alaska Native Heritage Center, music from Superman, William Tell Overture, and we wouldn’t forget Overture of 1812 with audience participation, and so much more!

It’s that time – PFD application time! When you apply, don’t forget to Pick, Click, Give.  If you give just $25 (or more!) to your Anchorage Symphony and other favorite nonprofits...and your neighbor does...and another...it will add up quickly. Through these collective donations, you share great music for every life and make positive things happen all over Alaska!
RandyMessage from the Maestro
Meeting Musica Nova composer Mateo Messina was like running into an old friend from Ohio. I had to look a couple of times – “Is that him? Is that Mateo?”  He looks more like a truck driver than a famous film composer – but he is a famous film composer!
