SASO presents War and Remembrance, an event that pays tribute to heroes through music. The performance begins with von Suppé’s Light Cavalry Overture and features local baritone Andrew Stuckey, who performs Brahms’ Four Serious Songs. The Reveille Men’s Chorus and Sons of Orpheus Chorus join the orchestra for a moving rendition of Schoenberg’s A Survivor from Warsaw. Additionally, the concert showcases the winners of the 2023 Dorothy Vanek Youth Concerto Competition, Tucson Concert Band, and Tchaikovsky’s iconic 1812 Overture.
Baritone Andrew Stuckey is a celebrated performer known for a powerful and beautiful voice. He has appeared in several opera and concert productions and has previously worked with SASO.
The Sons of Orpheus Chorus, led by founder and artistic director Grayson Hirst, is a well-respected male chorus that has performed in prestigious venues such as St. Peter’s Basilica in Rome and the White House.
The Reveille Men’s Chorus, under the direction of artistic director Keith Koster, is an internationally recognized gay men’s chorus that not only creates music but also focuses on HIV/AIDS awareness, education, and prevention.
The Tucson Concert Band is a volunteer community concert band that offers performances to the Tucson community throughout the year under the leadership of newly-appointed Music Director, Arno Dittrich.
The Dorothy Vanek Youth Concerto Competition is a recognition and support platform for talented high school musicians, established in honor of Dorothy Vanek, who was SASO’s longtime season sponsor.
