The Ronstadt Family in Concert

October 23 @ 4:00 pm - 6:30 pm

$46 – $75
Poster

Join us for an incredible evening of music, family, and community featuring six different groups, led by the talented artists of the Tucson Ronstadt Family and a special welcome by Linda Ronstadt!

The Ronstadt Family’s musical legacy is well-established in Tucson and throughout southern Arizona — some may even use the word dynasty to describe the overwhelming amount of talented artists that have grown from the roots of this family.

In 1882, the arrival of Federico José María Ronstadt in Arizona marked the beginnings of an influence on Tucson’s history that encapsulated craftsmanship, commerce, health care, music, and civic responsibility for a western frontier territory on the verge of statehood. Arriving in Tucson at the age of fourteen, Fred brought with him a love of music that has been a feature of the Ronstadt households from the beginning. The old songs from Sonora are part of the family heritage to this day, as generation after generation of Ronstadts continue the family tradition, putting polished harmonies to a wonderful mixture of folk and popular songs, Mexican and American, old and new.

Proceeds from this very special concert help fund critical community services for people of diverse beliefs and backgrounds, including counseling and support groups for all ages, care management and resources for older adults, emergency financial assistance for families, domestic violence support and prevention, and refugee resettlement services.
