Tucson Classical Music Performances 2024

Here’s a comprehensive list of live classical music performances in Tucson for the year 2024 where the program of composers and works has been published. I will keep this Excel document regularly updated. Please post a comment if anything should be added or changed.

I’ve included a column called “Dave’s Faves” which notes the works I am already familiar with and that I highly recommend. This is subjective, of course, but I hope this will help some of you in deciding which concerts to attend.

Happy Listening!

Link below is an Excel file (.xlsx).

Meteor Shower Calendar 2023

Here’s our meteor shower calendar for 2023.  It is sourced from the IMO’s Working List of Visual Meteor Showers (https://www.imo.net/files/meteor-shower/cal2023.pdf, Table 5, p. 25).

Each meteor shower is identified using its three-character IAU meteor shower code.  Codes are bold on the date of maximum, and one day either side of maximum.

Some additional events have been added to the calendar from Sources of Possible or Additional Activity, Table 6a, p. 27). I used the following abbreviations for the Table 6a events that do not have a standard three-character meteor code:

BA* = 2016 BA14
46P = 46P/Wirtanen

Here’s a printable PDF file of the meteor shower calendar shown below:

Happy meteor watching!
