This is a fantastic program! My students are excited about the music and learning music concepts. Thank you for a truly awesome time!

Teacher, Rio Vista Elementary

We drive a total of 5 hours round trip to attend the concerts. It is a long day but the students love it and learn so much. For some, this may be the only personal symphonic experience they ever attend.

Teacher, Douglas Unified School District

Music choices and presentation are very student-friendly. This is probably only classical music experience for my students. Keep it up!

Teacher, Santa Cruz Catholic School

This is always an excellent concert. It makes the music very accessible to students, even if they have no background in music.

Teacher, Southside Community School

Thank you for such a magical experience! We appreciate all the time and effort you give.

Teacher, Sandbox Early Childhood Learning Center

It was a wonderful performance, and our students enjoyed it and learned and reinforced what they had learned. Thank you!

Teacher, St. Michael's Parish Day School

With the TSO in this fun and engaging concert series, students will examine the purpose music serves in a social context. How have composers and musicians throughout history turned notes on a page into music that sparks movements? How are pieces of music powerful enough to bring people together in times of crisis and change, and nurture a sense of community? Join the Tucson Symphony Orchestra on an exploration through history to find out what happens when music takes action.
