Home for the holidays | Dec. 2020 Book

In December 2020, Arizona Repertory Singers debuted an ambitious choral project. While Covid-19 limited community gatherings, ARS creatively persevered, finding modern and safe ways to keep singing and sharing music with the community.

“We are recreating the concert experience,” said ARS music director Ryan Phillips. The annual December concert premiered online December 11. 

Months in the making, members of the choral ensemble rehearsed and recorded themselves in their own homes. Phillips spent weeks editing the video and audio recordings to create the online concert. Please enjoy our first virtual concert!
