Held across weekends in January and February, featuring names like René Barbera, Kristin Dauphinais and Bernardo Bermudez, the Tucson Desert Song Festival is one to make a song and dance about.
With some of the world's leading classical singers and a location to make you swoon, it's no surprise that Tucson has a long tradition of classical music in the southwest. The Tucson Symphony Orchestra is the oldest continuing professional performing arts organization in Arizona and the city's love for music and the arts is evident in their celebrations and pride in such performers. Attracting a wealth of professional and amateurs alike the event is perfect for both experienced and budding music-types. Most of the concerts are held on the University of Arizona's main campus which boasts state of the art performance spaces and stages.
Mild winter temperatures make the desert location bearable and coupled with amazing sunsets, golf courses, art galleries, restaurants and as much hiking as you can handle, there's a lot to be getting on with even if the music isn't entirely up your street. The nearby towns of Tubac, Bisbee and Patagonia also offer plenty of historic sights to keep you busy if you're looking to expand your trip. However, if classical music is your thing, then this event will be music to your ears.
- Get there: Fly to Tucson International Airport then take a taxi or drive between venues.
- Stay: Book accommodation in the Catalina Foothills for mountain views.
