Long Description:
In 1964, Gene C. Reid, the City of Tucson’s first parks supervisor, created a makeshift band stage in the city’s central park. Reid then invited Belgian-born conductor Georges DeMeester to bring his orchestra to play there. In 1974, the city redeveloped the band shell into a performance center that can accommodate a 50-plus orchestra and a large lawn that can accommodate 7,000 seats. In 1987, the city named it the DeMeester Outdoor Performance Center. It's still home to the Pops Orchestra, which puts on the spring and fall "Music under the Stars" series, and the annual Shakespeare under the Stars performances. Children are welcome.
