“Outstanding”
Reviewed June 4, 2013

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

“Tucson Symphony Orchestra”
Reviewed April 14, 2013

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.

“Good music at reasonable prices”
Reviewed February 24, 2013

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 galore. Oh, we're both musicians. So, pops concerts--great fun. Orchestral concerts-outstanding!

Fine acoustics, even in the very back row...only complaint--when the doors are open those last rows are DRAFTY.

It's sad to see empty seats--even the dance spectacular with Anna Trebunskaya had a number of available seats. Too bad, folks, ya missed a fun eve! Ditto last night--the Broadway stuff was just dynamite, but there were scores and scores (probably 200 or so) seats just begging to be warmed!

“Good regional orchestra”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

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 also a lot of traffic isssues downtown right now, January 2013, so allow time.
