Those of us that live in Tucson know how lucky we are at this time of the year! Instead of shoveling snow off of our driveways, we’re driving with the windows down on a Sunday afternoon. Although just being outside is pleasant for us during the holidays, Tucson also has a lot of festive holiday events to keep you entertained all season long. At Lifestyle Hearing Solutions, we care deeply about your ears and hearing, so we decided to round up the best holiday events to hear this season.
Patronato’s Christmas at San Xavier
The beloved tradition of Patronato’s Christmas at San Xavier began 21 years ago when Linda Ronstadt first headlined at the historic Mission. Patronato’s is a beautiful concert which highlights the musical talents of The Sons of Orpheus and the Arizona Boys Chorus. The Arizona Girls Chorus will also be making an appearance at the show. Advanced ticket purchases are required and all proceeds go towards the restoration and upkeep of the San Xavier mission.
