Tucson Repertory Orchestra started in July 2011 by Toru Tagawa and Linda Doughty Kneifel.
Our mission is to create performance opportunities for highly skilled musicians in Tucson area.  We meet almost every month to play music that are classical standards such as Overtures and Symphonies by Beethoven, Brahms, Dvorak, Schubert, Schumann and Tchaikovsky.  Musicians range from local professionals, university music students and music teachers.  Musicians are invited by invitation only in order to keep the level of the orchestra, and create equal opportunity to play.  All section rotates within the section, there are no principals nor concertmaster chair.  All readings are directed by Tucson Repertory Orchestra Conductor, Toru Tagawa.   We are currently looking for Violinists, Violists, Cellists and Bassists.  If you have music performance degree, or equivalent experience or skills and looking for a place to play in Tucson area, please contact the director at trorchestra@gmail.com

I am very impressed with your music. It is wonderful and very impressed with the emotional connection each person displays.

Attended your first 2016 performance yesterday at Grace St. Paul and was shocked to encounter such professionalism in Tucson. Being from New York, this is beyond-complimentary. Thank you so much. If you were to perform monthly, I’d be at all performances.

Dear Mr. and Mrs. Tagawa,
Thank you for providing such a special opportunity and experience for my 9-year-old son who played the cello in the June 2, 2018 concert at Grace St. Paul’s Church with your orchestra. I never had that kind of opportunity when I was a child playing the violin. …To top it off, you managed to get a segment on Tucson’s Morning Blend TV show featuring all the children musicians who performed at the concert. I am truly grateful and inspired! Thank you!
