As we celebrate the 65th anniversary of the Tucson Pops Orchestra, we honor those who came before us, who made it possible for us to arrive at this incredible milestone. It truly has been a labor of love for all of us. It began with a small group of musicians gathered together by our founder Georges DeMeester all those years ago out of a desire to entertain and share their talents simply for the love of music. Today, the Tucson Pops Orchestra features the top musicians in Southern AZ, whose pleasure it is to continue to provide the highest quality music to the Tucson public each season.
We are looking forward to a wonderful spring program featuring some old favorites and new talents, along with four guest conductors who will take the baton for 30 minutes each during four of the six concerts. Each of these has expressed a desire to become the next conductor of the Tucson Pops when I retire. Out of those four plus the two candidates who were guest conductors last season, two will be selected to conduct full concerts in the fall. I welcome your feedback and suggestions as we go through this process.
It's time to dust of those lawn chairs and get ready for our 65th season of Music Under the Stars™, beginning on Mother’s Day, May 12th.
See you at the Pops!
