The Maricopa Music Circle and Maricopa Chorus are fighting their way back to the stage after a difficult spring session that resulted in the postponement of their performance for the first time in their 13-year history.

The orchestra and chorus rescheduled their concert to Saturday, May 6, at Leading Edge Academy, 18700 N. Porter Road.

Seating opens at 6:15 p.m. and the downbeat begins at 7 p.m.

The premier chamber orchestra and their singing counterparts in Maricopa Chorus began rehearsing for their Spring Serenade Musicale in January for their original concert date of April 1.

“After numerous setbacks for different members of the cast – injured performers, medical emergencies, car accidents and the loss of a loved on the morning of the (April 1) show, MMC and MC reluctantly postponed their concert,” said violist Laura Oliveri, who joined MMC in 2012.

But the show must go on!

The weeks of arranging and practicing music, organizing and negotiating performance space and building infrastructure are finally coming to fruition as they gear up to present a mix of classical delights and toe-tapping melodies.

The volunteer music groups strive to keep performing arts and classical and choral music alive in the city.

“We are trying to foster the fine-arts scene in Maricopa,” Olivieri said.

The program features familiar classical tunes from the 1920s-1940s, and the venue will have plenty of room for moving and grooving.
