Camerata Sonora (Unconventional chamber music in Tucson, Arizona):

Camerata Sonora brings little known, rarely heard music to life through immersive, imaginative performances that tell a story.

We are 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.

We are drawn to music that, because of its challenging nature, is rarely performed by chamber ensembles. This includes a wide range of traditional music from around the world, so-called “early” music of the Western tradition, music that blurs boundaries between classical and vernacular genres, and music—both historical and contemporary—that in other ways pushes the boundaries of Western musical conventions.

We endeavor to prepare concerts that subvert conceptions of chamber music performance as overly academic, static, and detached. Instead we emphasize that music is alive, constantly evolving, and intimately linked to identity and a sense of place.

Moxie Singers:

Started with a core of friends who loved singing together and dreamed about creating a small singing ensemble that would perform a little bit of everything ~ mostly a cappella.

Out of that meeting, a small but mighty band of ladies started rehearsing once a week and Moxie Singers was born! We are acoustic (no electricity needed) and sing the songs everyone likes to hear. Whether we're busking on a street corner or belting it out at the ball field, we are happy to entertain you! You can email us at: moxiesingerstucson@gmail.com to find out how we can come and sing for your event or organization.

Sons of Orpheus—The Male Choir of Tucson:

If you would like to join us, call Grayson Hirst at 520-484-3743, or visit one of our rehearsals between late August and early May. We are a group of amateurs—men who like to sing. Some of us have sung with choral groups for many years, for others the SONS OF ORPHEUS is a first time experience. Some of us have had a great deal of musical training, others have had none. All of us have persisted until we perform unashamedly before a musically aware public.

The group promises to welcome you, to help you master the arts of music and diction, to tell jokes from time to time as needed to lighten the atmosphere, and above all, to have a good time.

We practice each Wednesday evening from 7:00 to 9:00 P.M., usually at Tucson Boy’s Chorus Building, 5770 East Pima Street and most Saturdays from 8:30 to 10:00 A.M., usually at St. Cyril Church, Northeast corner of Pima Street and Swan Road.

Southern Arizona Women's Chorus (SAWC):

The Southern Arizona Women’s Chorus performs many different kinds of music, ranging from Pop to Classical. Our repertoire is as varied as the women in the chorus, and yet always entertaining. The chorus has nearly 60 members from all walks of life in the greater Tucson area. We are under the Arizona Choral Arts Association umbrella; which hosts several choirs for the benefit of the greater Tucson/Oro Valley community. Our Board is made up of community members who support choral singing and its benefits to the community. As one of the few choruses which go out into the community to perform, we plan full seasons of engagements every winter and spring, entertaining local service and business groups, nursing homes, retirement communities and special events. We highly value collaborating with local and international artists. The Women’s Chorus has performed with such groups as the Tucson Symphony for the Oro Valley Annual July 4th concert, TCC with the Arizona Symphonic Winds, the Son’s of Orpheus, the Tucson Youth Chamber Ensemble, The Tucson Girls Chorus, The Tucson Arizona Boys Chorus, HarpFusion, Tucson Concert Band, Rene Clausen and the Concordia choir of Moorehead, Minnesota, Kirby Shaw, Rollo Dilworth, Jovert (Steel Drum Band from Tucson High School), Carnegie Hall, New York City, and Normandy, France for the 2016 D-Day Wreath Laying Ceremonies.

The Summer Chorus:

The Summer Chorus is a mixed chorus of adult men and women. Founded by Terrie Ashbaugh in 2010, this will be the tenth season for this Chorus that provides an opportunity for singers that belong to any other choir taking a break for the summer to keep their voice in shape, or just looking for the camaraderie you get from being in chorus during the summer. Our Director for this Summer will be Luke Diamond. Currently a grad student at the University of Arizona; Luke also directs the Tucson Barbershop Experience and Voices in the Oaks Chorale.

Cost will still be $55 per person. Please RSVP by calling 520-404-3148 or email SummerChorus.

Tucson Girls Chorus:

Founded in 1985, the Tucson Girls Chorus is recognized as an outstanding choral education program working with girls from Kindergarten through High School in seven choirs. The entry level choir is perfect for Kinders as an introduction to choral singing. The singers have an opportunity to progress up to the next chorus at the end of each singing year through automatic move up (lower choirs) or by auditions (upper choirs). With each chorus comes greater responsibilities and musicianship. All choirs have two major concerts in December and in May that is open to the public. They also present concerts locally (except the entry level) and all choirs participate in community service and fundraising events. The two upper choirs tour nationally and internationally, and have produced CDs. In the fall of 2013, an Alumnae Chorus was created to provide previous TGC graduates to stay connected to the TGC and continue their passion for choral singing. Phone: 520-577-6064.

The emphasis of the chorus is on using the natural voice and learning songs the way our ancestors learned them for untold millennia: by singing them.

The chorus includes women who have sung in other choruses as well as a current majority of women who love to sing and have never before sung in an organized group, or even considered themselves "singers." Performing in community settings is optional, though encouraged.

New members are welcome! All women and girls (when accompanied by a singing adult) are encouraged to join the chorus. No auditions, sight-reading or experience is required.

Voices in the Oaks:

In February of 2016, Mary Huebner founded the Voices in the Oaks Chorale to bring a vocal music component to the Oracle Piano Society. The purpose was to bring enjoyment of music in general to anyone who wanted to participate, and to enhance appreciation for vocal music in particular. The effect has been to create a chorale community that grows in numbers and musicianship with each concert presented!

We love to sing!

The Voices in the Oaks Chorale is a community chorus, comprised of singers from Oracle, the surrounding communities and the general Tucson area. The only requirements to sing with the chorus are a love of singing, the dedication to attend rehearsals and learn music, and to perform to your best ability. The ability to read music while helpful, is not a requirement to be a member of the chorus, and there is no audition!

Rehearsals are on Thursday evenings, 6:00 – 8:00 pm. For more information, contact Coralee Thompson.
