The compelling 2017 Tucson Desert Song Festival, Jan. 18 through Feb. 5, embraces everything from Biblical epic to Broadway. Rising star René Barbera will give a recital encompassing bel canto favorites and songs inspired by Argentine folk traditions. Tenor Rufus Müller and lutenist Daniel Swenberg offer an intimate afternoon of early music. True Concord Voices & Orchestra recruit Grammy-winning dramatic baritone Richard Paul Fink for Mendelssohn's stirring Elijah, while the Tucson Symphony Orchestra engages Heidi Stober and Andrew Craig Brown for the Brahms German Requiem. All this, plus Broadway legend Bernadette Peters and much more!
