Tucson Symphony Orchestra prepares to return to the stage | music

“We have been providing live chamber music performances to the munity for seven decades and not being able to do what our organization has put together and hired has been a terrible situation,” said Tolliver . “We tried to keep in touch with our audience through streaming concerts, but of course it’s not the same. The concerts are not only a musical performance, but also a meeting of music lovers. And that has simply not been possible for over a year. I think we’re all looking forward to it. “

Arizona Friends of Chamber Music President Joseph Tolliver says performances will return to the Leo Rich Theater this fall.
