Four Great Things to Do in Tucson Today: Wednesday, June 5

Michelle Abraham, violin & Peter Takács, piano. Summer is the perfect time for a sonata—especially a Beethoven one that features violin and piano in equal parts. The Arizona Friends of Chamber Music have you covered, with this Violin Sonata in A Major, Op. 12 No. 2; Romance No. 2 in F Major, Op. 50; and Violin Sonata in E-flat Major, Op. 12 No. 3. And they’ve brought in the big guns: TSO’s associate concertmaster Michelle Abraham is on the violin, and Oberlin professor Peter Takács, who’s recorded every single one of Beethoven’s piano sonatas, are playing the pieces. 7 p.m. Wednesday, June 5. Holsclaw Hall, 1017 N. Olive Road. Treat yourself! $30, or $10 with valid student ID. Details here. Events compiled by Tirion Morris, Emily Dieckman, B.S. Eliot and Jeff Gardner.
