We are the musicians of the Tucson Symphony Orchestra. For the past 84 years, as members of Tucson's only professional symphony orchestra, we have worked to enhance the artistic and cultural landscape of Southern Arizona. We bring years of training and experience to our jobs with the TSO, and have come to Tucson from across America (and beyond) to be a part of our great city's orchestra.

Our professionalism and dedication extends beyond our work with the Tucson Symphony, reaching into the community through extensive teaching and numerous solo and chamber music performances.

Please explore this site to learn more about the musicians who make up the TSO, the issues that affect our lives, and the music we perform. Thank you for visiting!

Fall 2013

We lost two members of our family this past August, and they've left a hole on stage and in our hearts that cannot be filled. Richard Leek had been a member of the TSO bass section since 1967, and Rebecca Son ("Sonny") began playing with the orchestra in 2006. We will miss making music with you, Richard and Sonny.  TSO loses two musicians in same week
