The Tempe Symphony Orchestra is a dedicated group of musicians who volunteer their time and efforts in order to perform challenging literature from both the standard repertoire and more contemporary sources. No members of the orchestra receive payment for playing in the group. Seating order is based, in part, on length of service in the orchestra, with final seating decisions at the discretion of the Music Director.
All Concerts begin at 7:30 pm.
Tickets are available at the door beginning at 6:30 pm and are available on a first-come, first-served basis.*
Schedule and program are subject to change.
*For groups arriving by private bus or shuttle, i.e. retirement community shuttle, please contact the box office at 480-350-2822 to reserve a block of complimentary tickets in advance.
