PBC's concert season concludes in May with our Pops Series, "Skyward," an energetic and exhilarating program of popular, contemporary, and familiar music.

These Mesa-based artists have been captivating audiences worldwide with high-octane performances and viral music videos since 2010. Yet another highlight of the Pops Series will be the world premiere of Italian-American Raphael Fusco's "It's a Long Way," the first-place entry in our 2023 New Works Rising Choral Composition Competition.
