Your Conductor José Luis Gomez’s Message to the Hispanic Leadership Institute Class of 2020

Last night, your Tucson Symphony Orchestra presented at the Hispanic Leadership Institute’s Arts and Culture session! See José Luis’ message to the HLI 2020 class here:

Your Tucson Symphony Orchestra is committed to having Hispanic representation in its programming to reflect the rich cultural heritage of Tucson. We are proud to work with local partners towards this cause including the Consulado de México en Tucson, Tucson Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, All Souls Procession, Mariachi los Camperos, and Mariachi Aztlán de Pueblo High School.

TSO Music Director José Luis is passionate about programming and engaging Hispanic composers and artists. In the 18-19 season TSO had the pleasure of collaborating with famed composer Arturo Márquez and trumpeter Pacho Flores on the co-commission of Concierto de Otoño for trumpet and orchestra. TSO plans on continuing to engage artists and composers that reflect the heritage of our community and your conductor.

Thank you to the Hispanic Leadership Institute and Tucson Hispanic Chamber of Commerce for hosting the Tucson Symphony Orchestra!
