It’s time to get those ice chests and lawn chairs out and get ready for another wonderful season of Music Under the Stars! This Sunday, Mother’s Day kicks off a wonderful series of spring concerts in the park.
Just for mom, we are featuring the exciting Falcon Steel Band from Catalina Foothills High School. Under the direction of Dr. Tina Walton, they will perform a medley of pieces written specifically for Steel Bands and arranged by Dr. Walton. The Orchestra program includes Sevilla, a lively Spanish piece by Albeniz, Dave Brubeck’s classic It’s About Time, music, selections from The Sound of Musicand of course My Yiddishe Momme, my personal favorite in honor of my dear Mother.
I think you will love the full schedule of spring concerts we have planned for you over the next five Sundays. Next Sunday, we will bring you a very special evening with Tucson’s favorite singers, Crystal Stark and Katherine Byrnes in a tribute to the late Regina Miller, longtime concert fan who left a legacy donation to the Pops. In weeks to come, we look forward to the patriotic Memorial Day concert, an amazing young talent, Cellist Sophia Rightmer, a tribute the music of Leonard Bernstein on his 100th birthday, the 1812 Overture and much more.
I hope to see you all at the Pops!
