2020-2021 Season

2020-2021 Season

Welcome to our 45th Season of Presenting Free Concerts in Tucson

Music Director, Charles Bontrager

July, 2020: The Civic Orchestra of Tucson Board of Directors has decided to cancel the fall portion of our 2020–2021 season. The decision was very sad, but very necessary. We need to protect the health and safety of all our musicians, friends, and supporters. We hope to return to music-making in January, 2021. Please see our revised schedule below. Additional concerts may be added.

Stay cautious and healthy, and please keep the Civic Orchestra of Tucson in your hearts and minds.

All the very best,
Charles Bontrager, Music Director/Conductor
