Gratefulness. I have always been a person who sees the glass “half full”, so gratefulness is part of my everyday life. I believe that no matter how bad the dayis, we can always find something to be grateful for.
Today, I am grateful that we are back for our 64th season of Music Under the Stars™ and we have kept the promise of Georges S. DeMeester of his long ago dream of free concerts in the park.
I am grateful for the wonderful leadership of our Maestro László Veres and the world-class talents of the Tucson Pops Orchestra and for the uplifting concerts they bring into our lives each spring and fall.
I am grateful for living in the beautiful city of Tucson, where the people are friendly and give from their hearts to support the Arts and many other wonderful causes.
Most of all, I am grateful for you, the Friends of the Pops and our wonderful sponsors, especially Long Realty Companies. Your constant support makes it possible for us to continue to provide Tucson Pops Concerts, where year after year, generations of families and friends have come together to share in the power and spirit of Music Under the Stars.
Let the season begin! See you at the Pops!
President, Tucson Pops Orchestra
