The Quail Creek Activities Committee will sponsor, for the fifth year in a row, the Civic Orchestra of Tucson’s return to the Madera Clubhouse to perform their spring pops concert on Sunday, April 27 at 3:00 p.m. In addition, the Larry Redhouse Trio—a perennial favorite of Quail Creek residents—will entertain in the Copper Lounge starting at 1:45 p.m. preceding the concert.

Music Director and Conductor Herschel Kreloff has put together a concert that is sure to please everyone and will feature winners of the Young Artists’ Competition, an annual event sponsored by the orchestra. Musical selections will include the overture from The Merry Wives of Windsor, the Blue Danube waltz, the overture to The Marriage of Figaro, the first movement of Beethoven’s Symphony No. 5 and music from the blockbuster movie Pirates of the Caribbean plus additional surprises.

As in past years, Dr. Kreloff has selected award-winning young musicians to perform solo along with the entire 60 piece orchestra. These premiere performances are always a favorite feature of the Civic Orchestra of Tucson’s visit to Quail Creek.

The 38 year old Civic Orchestra of Tucson is the oldest community orchestra in the region. The orchestra’s current season has featured standing ovation performances at the Community Performance and Arts Center in Green Valley and at Vistoso Community Church in Oro Valley.

Seating will be at round tables of ten seats each. A cash bar will be open, adding to the relaxed atmosphere of the afternoon. Ticket price is $20 with a kickoff sales event on Wednesday, March 12 at 10:00 a.m. in the Madera Clubhouse lobby. Ticket sales continue until the day of the concert at the Quail Creek Concierge Desk in the Madera Clubhouse during regular hours. For further information, call Pat Thoresen at 207-0372.
