The Civic Orchestra of Tucson (COT) is a 60-piece volunteer community orchestra founded in 1975. This group is one of the very few orchestras in the Tucson area that continues the tradition of presenting free symphonic concerts.
COT gives Tucsonans the opportunity to perform or listen to fine classical music. This community orchestra performs in a series of concerts at various sites throughout the city and Southern Arizona. Performances sponsored by COT are free of charge, and most are held at facilities easily accessible to the elderly and physically challenged. In addition, COT fosters and cultivates local and statewide musical talent by featuring elementary, high school, and college students, in addition to locally and nationally known musicians, as guest artists. COT is committed to enriching the cultural life of the greater Tucson area.
