Dear Tucson Symphony Orchestra family,
Imagine it is September. You walk into the music hall, you sit in your seat, and you hear the welcoming tuning notes open up from your orchestra. Your conductor José Luis Gomez walks out, your musicians begin to play, and the music flows through you. Leaving the music hall, music radiates from you – just one of the many ways your orchestra resonates in the community.
This is your Tucson Symphony Orchestra. Your conductor. Your musicians. Your orchestra.
Music has a staying power. Powerful, live symphonic music is a Tucson tradition which has resonated for 91 years because of you, the Tucson Symphony Orchestra family. Thank you for sharing music with us.
The very word ‘symphony’ – in its origin from Greek for ‘sound’ and ‘together’ – reminds us that we have each other as we combat this global pandemic. Let us be a Symphony of Support to one another.
Due to COVID-19, 35 performances were suspended including your cherished TSO Classic and Pops series, the annual Bravo community concert, the Young Composers Festival, and the bulk of TSO Music Education performances. Music Education is a core value to the TSO – your orchestra impacts over 40,000 students and teachers across Southern Arizona.
Today we ask you to join our Symphony of Support Campaign. As you can imagine, the suspension of performances has put an unexpected financial strain on the organization. If you find yourself able, please make a donation to show your support. Your gift will be put to immediate good use and provide critical relief to the whole organization.Donate to the Symphony of Support Campaign
We look forward to the return of your Tucson Symphony Orchestra in its full 2020–2021 season – the return of music. To make your gift of support or for more information on subscriptions, call the box office at 520.882.8585.
Thank you for ensuring that TSO continues to resonate for many years to come.
