Today is Brahms’s 187th birthday. Below is a special message from your conductor, José Luis Gomez, about Brahms:

We cannot wait to celebrate Brahms with you in the music hall. We look forward to the return of your Tucson Symphony Orchestra – the return of live music. The suspension of performances has created an unexpected financial strain. If you find yourself able, please make a donation to show your support. Your gift will be put to immediate good use and provide critical relief to the whole organization.
