The Music and Memories Concert Series began in 2003 as a benefit for flutist Katherine Kitzmann, who had no insurance when she was diagnosed with the cancer that killed her. Tucson Symphony Orchestra principal keyboardist Paula Fan offered to continue the concert the following year. Since then, aided by the Academy’s biennial fundraising event, the Confetti Gala, various fundraisers sponsored by individual donors, memorials in honor of loved ones who have asked that ACW be gifted in lieu of flowers, and the efforts of countless musicians, the money has been raised.
