Phoenix Symphony concertmaster Steven Moeckel is coming back to Tucson on Sunday, Sept 12 to help the St. Andrew’s Bach Society close out its 2021 concert series.
Having Moeckel, concertmaster for the Phoenix Symphony and the Santa Fe Opera orchestra in New Mexico, on a Tucson stage is reason enough to celebrate. But throw in a world-premiere of a work that Moeckel commissioned from Arizona composer Glenn Stallcop during the pandemic, and the celebration takes on a whole new level of wow.
During next Sunday’s concert with harpist Stephen Hartman, Moeckel will perform the premiere of “The Unreal Dwelling After Basho,” composed by Phoenix Symphony double-bassist Glenn Stallcop.
