The Arizona Repertory Singers is a 48-voice choral ensemble that shares its tradition of choral artistry and varied performance repertoire – spanning several eras from Renaissance to current contemporary choral music – with audiences of all ages in Tucson and Pima County. The ensemble’s volunteer singers, selected through a rigorous audition process, maintain full-time careers in business, education, engineering, information technology, law, medicine, social service, science and the arts.
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 Helios Ensemble is a 50-person community vocal performance group based in Tucson, Arizona founded and directed by Benjamin Hansen.
The group creates heartfelt, professional level performances through creative and uplifting group vocal technique.

The Summer Chorus:
The Summer Chorus is a mixed chorus of adult men and women. 2017 will be the seventh Season for this Chorus that provides an opportunity for singers that belong to any other choir taking a break for the summer and want 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 Terrie Ashbaugh (See Profile)
Rehearsals will be June 5 through July 24 on Monday evenings at 7 PM. Final concert July 28. All at Ascension Lutheran Church 1220 W Magee Rd. Final benefit concert is Friday July 28, 2017 at 7 PM, same location.
"The Summer Chorus is a great asset to the southern Arizona community, as most of our many choral groups do not rehearse or perform during the summer. Summer Chorus provides a place for community members to keep their voices active in the summer, as well as to meet people from other groups and form bonds and share resources. The concert music is usually not "too" demanding for those from other groups, but has "something for everyone" from Broadway to Classical. It is also nice to know that donations to the event go to support community services and outreach." Linda Kayden, Masterworks Chorale
The Tucson Arizona Boys Chorus is dedicated to providing boys in the community an enriched educational experience through the study and performance of choral music.
The Chorus endeavors to impart musical, social and leadership skills that build self-esteem and have a sustaining impact on its members. Representing and serving the community as an artistic and cultural resource are fundamental to the Chorus mission.

Girls who are in Kindergarten through 12th grade are invited to enroll for placement into one of our five choirs: the Bumblebees (K-1), the Ladybugs (grades 2-3), the Hummingbirds (grades 4-5), the Mariposa Singers (typically grades 6-7), and Jubliate (typically grades 8-12). The Advanced Choir (typically grades 9-12) only accepts girls who have performed with one of the other five choirs for at least one year.

Tucson Masterworks Chorale: (Southern Arizona's oldest choral arts organization):
Founded in 1949, Tucson Masterworks Chorale is Southern Arizona’s premier community chorus. We strive to make the great masterworks of choral literature, from pre-Baroque to contemporary, accessible to singers and audience members from all walks of life, to grow musically, and to encourage cultural participation in our community. We are a NonProfit 501(c)(3) organization, governed by a volunteer Board of Directors.
Founded in 2002 the Tucson Women's Chorus is an a cappella singing group in Tucson, AZ, USA. The group sings chants, rounds and songs of cultures and traditions from around the world. 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.
