It’s our 40th Season!

Holiday Concerts: “What Sweeter Music: 40 Years with ARS”

This holiday season, the Arizona Repertory Singers focuses on its vast repertoire and showcases the choral music our Tucson audiences have enjoyed for the last 40 years. For this special anniversary season, we reflect on our choral legacy and also present pieces by well-known contemporary composers. Audiences will be delighted by choral classics such as Shaw/Parker’s “Masters in this Hall” and “Fum, Fum, Fum,” as well as “What Sweeter Music” by John Rutter and Felix Mendelssohn’s “Weihnachten.” Newer additions to our repertoire include Cristian Grases’ “Abreme la Puerta” and Shawn Kirchner’s “Brightest and Best” with guitar and violin accompaniment. This holiday concert is joyous, ethereal, festive, tranquil and inspiring. Join us for our choral holiday journey! Read the press release. Download the flyer.

KidSong | Spring 2023

Our Spring repertoire is inspired by the joys and wonders of children and holds a warm place in our hearts—in March, our Music Director and his wife welcomed twins into their family. This performance will feature four pieces in foreign languages, including Bó na Leathadhairce by Desmond Earley, which highlights a tune learned by Irish school children, and Hela Rotan, an arrangement of a popular Indonesian folk song by Ken Stevens about the traditional game of tug-of-war. KidSong, by Stephen Caldwell, incorporates the entertaining arrangement of several favorite children’s songs into one cohesive piece that our audiences will surely recognize.
