This program of works by Bach, Purcell, Boulanger, Holst, and TSO composition instructor Betsy Bright shows how musicians can use different performance techniques to express different moods. This is an inside look into TSO Education Programs, as this video is being provided to schools free of charge thanks to your generous support.
José Luis Gomez digs into the TSO archives with a playlist of music to get you and a loved one in the mood for Valentine’s Day. Whether you’re cooking a nice meal or enjoying takeout from your favorite Tucson restaurant, let this be the soundtrack to a safe celebration!

We were so happy to celebrate Beethoven’s 250th birthday during the 2019–20 season by playing (almost) all his symphonies! José Luis Gomez created this playlist of excerpts from Symphonies 1–8 and recorded a video introduction to the playlist. We hope you can listen to this playlist and remember all those great moments!
Music of Johann Sebastian Bach
Join us all day long on Johann Sebastian Bach’s birthday! TSO musicians have recorded many solo works of Bach which we will release throughout the day on the composer’s 336th birthday. This will showcase the whole orchestra as soloists!
While recording a video at Reid Park Zoo for TSO Education programs, the wind quintet made sure to wish Penzi the African elephant a happy first birthday!
