(BPT) - A good gift keeps on giving long after you’ve recycled the wrapping paper and put away the decorations. A great gift keeps giving in ways that change people’s lives for the better.

It lasts even longer, and makes people much happier. Here are three gift ideas that will support health and wellness all year long.

Ask any music connoisseur and they will tell you, compositions are meant to be experienced in the flesh. The modern advancements of iPods, try as they might, simply cannot do justice to the enchantment of a live performance – the way a photograph is not telling of the expansive beauty within a Tucson sunset. This is even more true with the orchestra. There is a carnal syncopation with the soul as wood and brass fuse together to create a symphonic wall of sound. The Tucson Symphony Orchestra is well aware of the magic within a live spectacle, which is why they have decided to take one of cinema’s greatest musical accomplishments and perform it live at the Tucson Music Hall. As part of its “Superpops!” series, the orchestra will be performing Disney’s iconic “Fantasia” live in concert over the holiday weekend.
Broadway In Tucson is collaborating with UA Presents to bring Broadway’s best to Tucson. Three upcoming shows will allow UA Presents to brings “its own taste of Broadway this season.”
