• Spring 2022

    February 27
    ARS is excited to partner with the University of Arizona Symphonic and Arizona Choirs for a combined concert on February 25 at 7:30 p.m. at St. Mark’s United Methodist Church and February 27 at 3 p.m. at St. Augustine Cathedral downtown. Admission is free. This is an exciting opportunity to build our relationship with the university and reach a new audience with thought provoking repertoire about the importance of planet conservation. 

    Coming in April
    The Spring 2022 concerts will feature repertoire that emphasizes the importance of preserving our planet by slowing the effects of climate change – which affects not only all of us, but nature and animals as well. ARS will highlight this issue for our listeners with music that includes Emerald Stream by Seth Houston and Estonian composer Uno Naissoo’s Metsa Telegramm.

Our COVID policy:

As a performing arts organization, our audiences come first.  Here is what we are doing to protect you at our performances this December.

All ARS singers and staff
are vaccinated. 

All patrons must show proof of
vaccination and
wear masks (except 12 and under).

Ticket sales will be limited
to half the seating capacity
for each venue.

Seating will be socially distanced, with audience members encouraged to
sit six feet apart, and in
every other row. 

Choral music breaks down boundaries that divide us,
and encircles the entire human race with the spirit of togetherness.

The Arizona Repertory Singers is an auditioned ensemble of singers from greater Tucson. Since 1984, we have presented high quality performances of the standard repertoire and new music. We hope our choral music spreads a message of harmony and inspiration.

We look forward to exploring more works by composers from diverse ethnic and cultural backgrounds – now and in the future.
