Mahler’s Vision of Paradise
José's Take: I'm excited to introduce Tucson audiences to Florence Price, the first female African-American composer of classical music, whose beautiful music is finally enjoying deserved appreciation. Sensational American soprano Nicole Cabell luxuriates in Samuel Barber's vocal rhapsody, and Mahler's Fourth Symphony also celebrates song. You'll hear a light touch in its sleigh bells and bird calls, spice in its sinister concertmaster solo, and a child's vision of heaven in the final notes.

As we prepare for the return of live performances in September, the safety of our patrons and performers is of the greatest importance to us. We shall follow the advice of the CDC, Pima County health department, and venue management in implementing COVID-19 protocols. Tucson Convention Center has implemented increased cleaning and disinfectant procedures in order to maintain the hygiene of its venues, restrooms and food or beverage service. Additional filtration is being added to HVAC systems.
Nearer the dates of concerts, we will update patrons by e-mail and on the TSO website of masking and any other policies, based on public health recommendations at that time. TSO may require mask-wearing if directed by public health authorities.
In the meantime, we strongly encourage everyone planning to attend a performance to be fully vaccinated. Thank you!
