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.
