The live performance by the Tucson Symphony Orchestra of Disney's Fantasia was as magical as Walt Disney's creative spirit! Everyone spellbound - from the happy babies with not a whining among them, to the standing ovation adults with not a snoring among them!

We also attended the Tchaikovsky Violin Concerto with Jose Luis Gomez as Guest Conductor and Chee-Yun on Violin. It was our first time in at this concert house and we were pleasantly surprised. We sat in the first row of the balcony and the view and sound quality were both excellent. The orchestra is first quality and both the guest... More

Attended Tchaikovsky Violin Concerto with Jose Luis Gomez as Guest Conductor and Chee-Yun on Violin. What a breath-taking performance! The conductor was magnificent-fluid hands like a dancer's; animated and almost dancing to the music while conducting. A captivating performance! Chee-Yun's playing was so beautiful, it brought tears to my eyes. The TSO 's playing was precise and magnificent. Tucson is... More

The TSO often comes to Green Valley, AZ for special performances. They are an accomplished group of professional musicians that adept excellently to other venues than the Tucson Symphony home. They always delight the audience with marvelous compositions.

Lucky to score a ticket to the Jan 14, 2014 performance -- and this was back in Aug 2013. The TSO was under the baton of George Hanson; Itzhak Perlman was the guest artist. A marvelous, marvelous evening! TSO performed selections from Beethoven, Mahler and Berlioz. After a brief intermission, Mr Perlman joined the symphony and performed Beethoven's Concerto in... More

Exceptional musicians, skillfully selected performances, lots of heart and humor when appropriate. Even non-lovers of classical music enjoy it.

We attended the POPs series for a few years but then the shows got repetitive and we cancelled our membership. Will return in the future.

We've been to a half-dozen concerts over the last year...even the ones that we don't come home raving over we always have a good time. Last night's pops concert with 3 Broadway vocalists was superb--TOTAL ECLIPSE OF THE HEART and the PHANTOM numbers gave us shivers! Christiane Noll and Rob Evans were outstanding voices, with range, control, dynamics, and expression... More

I have had season tickets here since the eighties, but I think that this current conductor plays too much new stuff, and not enough of the more familiar pieces. Wonderful music hall, good acoustics, nice orchestra, supported by the community. Parking can be a problem and the lots are currently eight dollars, if you can get into one. There are... More
