Q U A R T Z

E N S E M B L E

 

Joshua Harper, Artistic Director

The Quartz Ensemble is Northern Arizona’s newest professional choir. Bringing together singers from across Arizona and the west coast, the ensemble’s mission is to bring the highest quality choral singing to the tri-cities area, while also challenging ideas and assumptions of what classical choral music can be. Founded in 2021, Quartz hopes to form connections between artists and audiences in an attempt to bring hope and beauty into the Prescott, Arizona area, from which our name is derived from. 

 

We are excited to offer two varied programs in the 2022-2023 season, including another collaboration with the Arizona Philharmonic. Join us as we dive into music from the Renaissance to the present day, featuring works by Caroline Shaw, Aaron Copland, Dale Trumbore, and Felix Mendelssohn amongst many others!

Songs of Our Lives

A program of shorter works, including:

 

Caroline Shaw

And The Swallow

 

Aaron Copland

Old American Songs

 

William Byrd

Emendemus in melius

 

Dale Trumbore

In The Middle

Mendelssohn’s Elijah 

 

Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy

Elijah, op. 70, MWV A 25

arr. Joachim Linckelmann

Mendelssohn's iconic oratorio like you have never heard it before...

 

In their third appearance with Arizona Philharmonic, Dr. Joshua Harper’s elite chorus Quartz Ensemble returns to our stage to present Felix Mendelssohn’s masterpiece, Elijah. Building upon the success of last season’s Brahms’ Requiem, Arizona Philharmonic presents another Arizona premiere of a Joachim Linckelmann chamber orchestra arrangement. Once again, the stunning clarity of a 12-voice professional choir shines with the lighter orchestration that Linckelmann crafts. You will hear Elijah in a whole new intimacy.
