Arizona Musicfest Celebrates 30th Anniversary

Music festival announces its 2020-21 concert season

Arizona Musicfest had planned to celebrate its important milestone year with a starry lineup to headline its 30th anniversary season, but due to COVID-19, the organization has responsibly scaled back its season offerings.

“While we’re disappointed that we’re not able to go forward with the full anniversary season we had planned, we’re still very excited to safely reunite our audiences as we present a terrific lineup of great artists and engaging performances,” says Allan Naplan, Arizona Musicfest’s executive and producing director.

Musicfest concerts will run from Jan. through April, a departure from its usual seven-month season. This special season’s lineup includes many great artists, some making their Musicfest debuts, while others returning due to popular demand. Featured artists include Pink Martini, Steve Tyrell, Emanuel Ax, The Texas Tenors, Broadway’s John Lloyd Young and Musicfest audience favorites Ann Hampton Callaway and Tony DeSare.

The season also features the Festival Orchestra, comprising musicians from some of the nation’s finest orchestras.

For all concerts, Arizona Musicfest intends to adhere to all required and recommended COVID-19 safety and mitigation protocols.
