Evening Series

The nine Evening Series concerts are masterly performances by the world’s finest chamber ensembles highlighting Beethoven’s contribution to the chamber music genre amidst a repertory that relies on the canon of art music in the Western tradition.

Concerts are at 7:30 pm at the Leo Rich Theater at the TCC, downtown Tucson, within walking distance of an expanding array of restaurants, craft brewers, and cocktail venues. Paid parking is adjacent to the hall; free parking ebbs and flows with the development of the downtown area.

We offer a Supper Club at a local restaurant before each concert with pay-as-you-go dinner and a lecture on the evening’s program.

Concerts last approximately two hours with one intermission. A selection of wine, beer, and non-alcoholic beverages is available in the lobby prior to the concert and at intermission; drinks may be taken to your seat. Comprehensive program notes are included in each concert’s printed program.

Seats are reserved and all have direct stage views in the intimate hall. Season subscribers receive priority on seat choice and can secure the same seats for all concerts and in subsequent seasons.
