New live music experiences
Last fall the TSO premiered a brand-new concert series: Parties of Note. An entirely different kind of live music experience, these intimate gatherings welcome Tucson Symphony Orchestra musicians into private homes and unique venues for chamber music concerts, cocktails and sparkling conversation. Parties of Note are the perfect way to connect with your Tucson Symphony Orchestra musicians and with fellow music lovers in a whole new way.
Many thanks to our generous Hosts for opening their homes and underwriting party expenses. Ticket prices vary by event and a portion of each ticket will be a tax deductible donation to support the artistic and educational mission of the TSO.
Experience a relaxed evening of music and art inspired by the Young’s amazing collection of Southwestern paintings, textiles and bronzes coupled with spectacular mountain views from every patio. Enjoy wine, beer and festive southwestern fare with fellow art and music lovers – and don’t miss out on the chance to mingle with TSO musicians before and after their performance of signature Americana music.
There is no place quite like the Members-Only Mountain Oyster Club. This historic southwestern setting is beautifully decorated for the holidays and showcases an outstanding western art collection. Join us for wine and heavy hors d’oeuvres as well as a private performance of classical Christmas favorites featuring the TSO Woodwind Quintet.
Join us for an evening of extraordinary music performed outdoors in one of Tucson’s most unusual and dramatic homes. Nestled high in Pima Canyon the Palmer Residence features an extensive collection of contemporary art glass beautifully complemented by floor to ceiling windows showcasing majestic views of the Catalinas. Join us early in the evening for wine and hors d’œuvres preceding the TSO Brass Quintet performance on the patio followed by a delicious seated dinner and dessert.
Enjoy inspiring views of an amber sunset against the Catalina Mountains with a resounding, outdoor performance of the TSO Brass Quintet. Partake in guided tours of the residents’ private collection of bronze maquettes and sculptures, all while savoring delicious hors d’œuvres and wine to compliment this relaxing evening of brass sights, sounds, and indulgence.
The Mexican Consulate of Tucson, in partnership with the Tucson Symphony Orchestra, presents an exclusive chance to meet famed trumpeter Pacho Flores and Maestro José Luis Gomez. TSO Percussion Ensemble will perform lively selections while guests enjoy delectable hors d’œuvres paired with tequila and mezcal tastings.
