2014-2015 Season

MUSIC WHERE YOU LIVE

More Concerts More Locations More Inspiration

Tucson Chamber Artists (TCA) begins its second decade as the professional chamber choir and orchestra of Southern Arizona. Having just celebrated its 10th anniversary season, TCA has experienced explosive growth since its inception in 2004, due to its unique programming, exceptional artistic quality and commitment to neighborhood performance venues.

Described by The Arizona Daily Star as “arguably the greater Tucson area’s finest musicians,” TCA is dedicated to enriching lives through the transformational power of classical music in programs that have been characterized by attendees as “the most interesting and varied in town.”

In our 11th season, we are proud to announce 50 percent more performances in new venues and areas of the community, bringing our music to where you live. This year’s theme lent itself well to the use of doors in styles and locations that represent the music. We invite you to join us in opening these doors to exhilarating and heartwarming music from around the world with one of our concerts near you. Whether you select one of the several flexible ticket packages (the best savings!), or want to sample a concert or two, experience for yourself what critics and music lovers alike have been talking about, in making TCA one of the fastest growing and most exciting professional arts organizations in the Southwest!
