If you haven’t attended a ChamberLab performance, we strongly suggest you do. ChamberLab, Tucson’s D.I.Y. classical concert series, roars and thunders with a brass ensemble and orchestral percussion at 8 p.m. on Friday, February 28 at the historic Rialto Theatre. As the orchestra arranges themselves on the floor with seating in the round, the reverberant, concrete theater rings and booms with the sound of trumpets, trombones, tubas, sousaphones, orchestral bass drum, timpani, tom toms, marimba, vibraphone, gongs and circular saw blades. No sound system necessary. We want you to enjoy this concert and so do the musical visionaries at ChamberLab who offer Bookmans.com readers free passes this Ticket Tuesday.
