The orchestra’s spring concert, slated for 3 p.m. Saturday, includes George Gershwin’s “American in Paris,” Mozart’s Symphony in G Minor #40, and Alexander Borodin’s “Polovtsian Dancers,” a key piece of music in the musical “Kismet.”

The orchestra is led by Alexander Tentser. Tickets cost $6.

Also at Pima, the school’s Chorale & College Singers, under the direction of Jonathan Ng, close out the semester with a concert that includes Renaissance English madrigals, a medley from “Les Miserables,” and Mark Hayes’ “The Ash Grove. It’s at 3 p.m. Sunday; tickets cost $6.

Gettin’ brassy

The Old Pueblo Brass Band’s spring concert will have a bit of musical theater, a bit of jazz and a bit of marching music.

The concert is at 3 p.m. Sunday, and on the program are a salute to Frank Sinatra, music from “West Side Story,” and even some pieces arranged specifically for the band.

It’s at Northminster Presbyterian Church, 2450 E. Fort Lowell Road. And it’s free, though donations will be accepted. Online:
