MUSIC AND SACRED ARTS AT CATALINA

For over 50 years, music has been the heart and soul of worship at Catalina.  We are blessed  with many talented singers and instrumental musicians  who make music a central part of our ministry to the people of Tucson.  The acoustics in our sanctuary are exceptional for music, and throughout the year it is used for concerts by various choral groups in our community.  Our recently dedicated Quimby Opus 70 IV manual / 57 rank pipe organ in memory of Ralph and Shirley Morgan is one of the most unique symphonic organs in Tucson and S. Arizona.
