(Tucson, AZ)─Individual tickets for the Tucson Symphony Orchestra’s 2018-19 programs are now on sale.
Broadway superstar Kristin Chenoweth, a Tony and Emmy Award winner, and violin virtuoso Midori are among the guest artists who will perform with the Tucson Symphony Orchestra this season. Pink Martini returns for two performances, a sound NPR calls “a globetrotting victory lap with cosmopolitan sophistication and the playfulness of pop.” STAR WARS: A NEW HOPE IN CONCERT is this year’s Thanksgiving holiday weekend special with the 1977 film on the big screen and the full Tucson Symphony performing John Williams’ score. Tickets for An Intimate Evening with Kristin Chenoweth are currently only available with the purchase of a subscription; single tickets for her one-night-only performance on Thursday, January 17, 2019 at Tucson Music Hall will go on sale at a later date.
Maestro José Luis Gomez will open his second season as Music Director with a piece by one of his favorite composers, Richard Strauss. Strauss’ Also Sprach Zarathustra achieved worldwide popularity when film director Stanley Kubrick chose it for his legendary 1968 film 2001: A Space Odyssey, celebrating its 50th anniversary this year. The opening will also feature the Tucson Symphony debut of virtuoso Anne Akiko Meyers performing Beethoven’s Violin Concerto, one of the best known and important works of the repertoire. Popular repertoire this season also includes Brahms’ Symphony No. 1, Rachmaninoff’s Symphony No. 3, Mahler’s Symphony No. 5 and Tchaikovsky’s Piano Concerto No. 1 performed by Barry Douglas in his first TSO appearance in 11 years. Also returning to the TSO this season are pianist Joyce Yang and former Principal Trumpet Conrad Jones. This season also finds Maestro Gomez making his TSO performing debut as first violin in Mozart’s Serenade for Strings to close the Masterworks Series.
Tickets are also available for Lights! Camera! Pops!, the opening of the SuperPops! Series. Former Music Director Bob Bernhardt returns to conduct a program celebrating the history of film music from such classics as Gone with the Wind to today’s John Williams’ blockbusters. Tickets are also on sale for the SuperPops! shows Cirque Holiday, Best of The Eagles and the Music of Andrew Lloyd Webber and Stephen Sondheim.
