More about Tucson Symphony Orchestra:
The Tucson Symphony Orchestra’s Percussion Ensemble was formed in 1998. The ensemble recently brought thousands of people to their feet at a series of TSO Pops! concerts with electric and mesmerizing performances of Richard Peck’s “The Glory and the Grandeur.” Originally formed for education concerts and a natural choice for middle and high school students, performances include audience participation and instruments from around the globe. The percussion Ensemble has quickly become a popular choice for recitals for adults as well as for children, exploring the diverse repertoire of jazz, pop, classics, and contemporary music so colorfully performed by percussion. The group consistently receives praise and awards from around the state. One teacher says, “Your programs are still the talk of the school,” and “all four of you are truly outstanding representatives not only for the Tucson Symphony Orchestra but for the future of classical music as well.”
