WHO WE ARE
Tucson Women's Chorus is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to celebrating all women's voices in a vibrant, reflective, and joyful singing community.
We welcome multigenerational women of all backgrounds, including LGBTQ, diverse cultural identities, and any level of prior musical experience.
We do not hold auditions, and we support singers who learn by ear and/or by reading music.
We take pride in the process of making music together and we embrace musical challenges. We sing to connect with each other and with a wide world of human experience, musical traditions, histories, communities, and styles.
Singing is a powerful way to connect with each other, with audiences, and with an array of histories, communities, genres, and styles. Connections made through singing empower individuals and foster empathy.
To quote one of our singers, "We are an open group of women singing heartfelt music to uplift the world."

Tucson Women's Chorus Artistic Director
I'm delighted to be Artistic Director of the Tucson Women's Chorus. I love community choirs, I love women coming together, and I love this group of people!
I began with TWC in Fall, 2021 when, after giving birth to my first baby in April, I made the difficult decision not to return to work as a choir teacher. I was so grateful to get to keep music in my life with weekly rehearsals, while for the most part staying home with my baby, Stella.
And now, having become such a part of this community of women, I am so happy to continue with TWC even as I resume full time work as Music Teacher at Prince Elementary School.
Previously, I'd taught choir for 3 years at Salpointe High School. I've spent nearly half my life involved with the Tucson Girls Chorus as a singer, then assistant, and finally as conductor.
I have a strong belief in the powers of music and community to shape lives and to increase the overall well-being of individuals.
During the first year and a half of the pandemic, choirs were not being choirs, especially the ones taking the necessary precaution of meeting virtually.
We met virtually, but of course, we missed the connection, the warmth of our sisters in song around us, the vibrations of voices, and our breath synchronizing together.
Now in 2023, it is beyond exciting to have resumed in-person rehearsals!
The chorus has gained many new members, and I am happy to hear that former members are returning little by little. I know that I will be new to you, but I hope you feel my excitement and that the spirit of moving forward is in the air. It feels wonderful to me.
Thank you for sharing your voices with me. I'm so excited! Here's to moving forward!
Yours in music,
