Act One and ARS: Partners in Music Education for Youth

For several years, we have been invited to perform for students from Tucson area Title 1 schools at the Berger Performing Arts Center through a partnership with Act One – a not-for-profit organization that engages students from underserved schools in arts learning opportunities to create meaningful enrichment and exposure to the arts. Act One has selected ARS as its only choral arts partner. We have presented concerts to more than 1,800 students, and we performed for 70+ Title 1 students in May 2022. We look forward to our continued partnership with Act One and the opportunity to educate young students about live performance and the choral arts.

Navigating the “new normal” of arts education is only possible through community partners like the Arizona Repertory Singers. They share their talents with hundreds of students every year through our programs, inspiring the hearts of children across Arizona who struggle to get access to the arts.
