Celebrate the new year with Tucson Desert Song Festival soloists!
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.
