2018 Pops Concerts

with Chris Tackett, Guest Conductor

Our 2018 Pops Concerts were a great success. The first concert of the 2018-2019 season will be posted here shortly.

The concert at Reid Park was dedicated to the memory of Dr. Herschel Kreloff, Music Director of the Civic Orchestra of Tucson, who passed away on April 25, 2018.
Both of these concerts featured solos by winners of our 2018 Young Artists' Competition.
