Arizona Philharmonic (AZ Phil) Prescott’s regional professional orchestra, announces their Art 4 All™ program, a fundamental component of AZ Phil’s effort to bring professional orchestra music to all interested members of the community on a pay-what-you-can basis. “To connect the community to our Art 4 All program, we collaborate with local partners, such as Big Brothers Big Sisters, Boys to Men Mentoring, Prescott Area Shelter Services, St. Luke’s Episcopal Church, Granite Peak Unitarian Universalist Congregation, and others who are connected to those who might not otherwise be able to afford the beauty of a professional orchestra or chamber music concert, and would benefit the most from this opportunity,” commented Henry Flurry, Arizona Philharmonic Executive Director.
