TUCSON, AZ – Since 2013, the nonprofit ACAA has served as a resource for singers, choral groups, and audiences. “We endeavor through our membership to enable choruses to network, collaborate, and market using shared resources,” said Terrie Ashbaugh, founder of ACAA and long-time director of the Southern Arizona Women’s Chorus.

The ACAA currently includes these member choruses:

Camerata Sonora is a vocal chamber ensemble that varies in size from 12 to 20 musicians. Our members are a mix of highly-trained, semi-professional musicians, and talented, dedicated amateurs with little formal music training. Camerata Sonora brings little known, rarely heard music to life through immersive, imaginative performances that tell a story.

We sing a varied repertoire, from pop standards, folk ballads and Broadway tunes to classical styles from across the centuries to contemporary composers.

True Concord, a critically acclaimed professional chamber choir and orchestra, with innovative programming, intimate and acoustically excellent performances across the region, and voices and instrumentalists of the highest caliber from across the country, with a mission to create experiences that move, enrich and inspire.
