|TSO heading to Sells|
The TSO will be performing for the Tohono O'odham Nation on May 1, 2010. The symphony's day-long residency in Sells will include a TSO String Quartet recital for the Nation's elders at the Archie Hendricks Senior Skilled Nursing Facility, a TSO Wind Quintet "Just for Kids" concert for children too young to attend the evening concert, and an evening performance featuring the entire TSO.
On the program for the evening concert will be TSO Concertmaster Aaron Boyd, performing Mozart's Violin Concerto No. 5, as well as Dvorák's Symphony No. 6 and the overture to Mozart's "Marriage of Figaro."
The TSO's appearance is made possible through a partnership between the orchestra and the Tohono O'odham Nation Cultural Center and Museum, along with support from the Tohono O’odham Senior Services Department, the Sells Recreation Center (Tohono O’odham Nation Education Department), the Archie Hendricks Senior Skilled Nursing Facility and the Indian Oasis-Baboquivari Unified School District. Please read the TSO press release for more information.
UPDATE: The orchestra had a wonderful time performing for the Tohono O'odham community. We were touched by their hospitality, and hope to have the honor of performing for them again in the near future. Please see the Arizona Daily Star article for more about the TSO's trip to Sells.
