2022 Holiday Concerts!

ARS Women in Winter

For the first time ever—and rare for holiday repertoire—ARS performs a program consisting entirely of compositions and arrangements by women. Women in Winter offers a wide range of styles, genres, and perspectives related to the season, among them “Snow Angel” by Sarah Quartel, a five-movement piece with piano, cello, and djembe accompaniment. An engaging musical celebration of the holidays, our program also features works from Kim Baryluk, Melinda Bargreen, Abbie Betinis, Nancy Grundahl, Elaine Hagenberg, Iris Levine, Rosephanye Powell, and Annabel Rooney.

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.

I Can See The Light – Spring 2021

Following the success of our first-ever virtual holiday concert, the Arizona Repertory Singers announces our next virtual concert – I Can See the Light, available on April 30, 2021.

Our journey takes us from Eliza Gilkyson’s “Requiem” – a song of grief composed after the Asian Tsunami in 2004 – to Dolly Parton’s “Light of a Clear Blue Morning.” This music reaffirms that light will shine through the darkness once again.

Along the way, we revel in the beauty of our Earth and the quiet space of faith as expressed by Conor Koppin in” When Music Sounds.” A trio of love songs provides another lens through which to explore love, loss, compassion and redemption.

We also present two instrumental pieces – a vivacious piano solo by our accompanist, Trissina Kear, and a virtual guitar quartet performance by our Music Director, Ryan Phillips.
