Patronato’s Christmas at San Xavier

Linda Ronstadt headlined the first concert at the Mission more than 22 years ago, starting a beloved tradition that now marks the beginning of Tucson’s holiday season. This signature series of concerts raises funds for Patronato, a nonprofit organization devoted to restoring and preserving Mission San Xavier for future generations.
