Tucson’s Club Filarmonico, started by Federico Ronstadt.

In conjunction with the Pima Council on Aging, Daniel Buckley Productions LLC is conducting interviews with members of the Ronstadt clan about the family’s history and numerous contributions to the Tucson community.

The Ronstadts have been active members of the Tucson community since the late 180s when Federico Ronstadt first moved to town, followed shortly thereafter by two brothers and a sister.

Known most widely for singer Linda Ronstadt, the family also produced the first symphonic group west of the Mississippi (the Club Filarmonico), one of Arizona’s pioneers of opera and art song (Luisa Espinel), a former Chief of Police (Peter Ronstadt), former Director of Parks and Recreation (Jim Ronstadt) and a former Tucson City Council member (Fred Ronstadt).

PCOA will honor the Ronstadt Family on April 12 at its annual Generations of Giving gala, and the video shot by Daniel Buckley Productions LLC will be shown at that time. Contact PCOA for ticket information.
