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.
