Tucson, Arizona-- Pima Community College Music presents the PCC Orchestra under the direction of Dr. Alexander Tentser. The new winter program features Felix Mendelssohn's great "Scottish Symphony #3" depicting the storm and thunder in the end of the first movement. Mendelssohn was a child prodigy and composed many serious works by the time he turned 15 years old. The orchestra also performs a piece by another child prodigy, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart's "Symphony #20." Mozart learned the piano at three years old and was famous throughout Europe by the age of 10. The concert includes Antonio Vivaldi "Concerto for Two Flutes and Strings." Vivaldi was a great violin virtuoso and also an ordained priest. His nickname was the "Red Priest" because of the color of his hair.
Pima Community College Center for the Arts is located on the West Campus just west of downtown and I-10 on St. Mary's Rd, which turns into Anklam Rd. Box office hours are Tuesday-Friday, noon to 5 p.m. and one hour prior to performance.
