The Ronstadt Family was honored with the Generations of Commitment Award by Pima Council on Aging at its gala event in April, 2014. Daniel Buckley Productions created the video for the sold-out event.

Since Federico (Fred) Ronstadt arrived in Tucson in 1882, the family has shaped Tucson and Arizona more and more with eah passing generation. Fred created Tucson’s first classical music ensemble (the Club Filarmonico) and was a founding board member of the Tucson Symphony. His daughter, Luisa Espinel was one of Arizona’s first international opera and art song stars. And his grand daughter, Linda Ronstadt, was recently inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. The Ronstadts have been involved in politics, art, ranching, construction, policy making and so much more. This video tells a bit of the family’s history and impact on Southern Arizona and northern Mexico.
