Southern Arizona Women's Chorus Presents "Spanish Allelu"


TUCSON, AZ – This holiday season take a musical trip to Spain with the 50-voice Southern Arizona Women's Chorus on Dec. 14 and Dec. 21.


"We will be traveling to San Sebastian, Spain in June of 2020 for the Festival of Women's and Treble Voices so we are starting now with some Spanish repertoire and Flamenco dancers," said Terrie Ashbaugh, longtime artistic director of the chorus, as well as director of worship and business manager at Ascension Lutheran Church.

"We will be working with American composer Andrea Ramsey and Spanish composer Eva Ugalde."


The program is called "Spanish Allelu." Ashbaugh said, "We will begin the concert with some Spanish-oriented holiday songs such as 'Fum, Fum, Fum,' 'A La Nanita Na' and 'Ocho Kandelikas.' Then we'll head for Spain with an original song by Ugalde titled "Gaur Arbola" along with Spanish ballads and 'Yo Le Canto Todo El Dia,' which translates to 'I'll sing all the day.' "


This program will be presented twice. The first SAWC concert is on Saturday, Dec. 14 at 6:00p.m. at the Hope City Church, 5729 E. 22nd St. Tickets are $20 and can be purchased through


The second performance will be Sunday, Dec. 22 at 3:00 pm at Ascension Lutheran Church, 1220 W Magee Rd. Tickets can be purchased at the door for $20 or ordered online with a fee added at Call 404-3148 for more information


SAWC is pronounced like saucy. "We are saucy women having a fine time singing together," Ashbaugh said. "Our mission is to perform a versatile and varied choral repertoire for women's voices in order to benefit and educate the diverse Southern Arizona community and beyond." The chorus presents two major concerts a year, plus numerous community outreach programs throughout the season, including some daytime and some evening events.


Ashbaugh has led SAWC since 1998 and conducted the chorus in its 2006 Carnegie Hall debut. The chorus' roots date to 1981.The repertoire spans from classical music to Broadway, folk, jazz, spiritual, seasonal and other popular songs. SAWC is a member of Chorus America and the Arizona Choral Arts Association, which Ashbaugh founded.


Ashbaugh grew up as a military brat and lived in several countries before the age of 9. She began her music career at age 14 when she taught herself to play the organ for her neighbor's church. She's accompanied choirs in church and schools from that time on. She also sang solos and eventually became a choir director.

Holly Griffith (L), Cynthia Meier and Ryan Parker Knox hope for help from a higher power.

Cynthia Meier thrives as Madame Arcati, the rosy-cheeked medium delighted to have connections with the spirit world in Noel Coward's classic satire on married life, “Blithe Spirit.”

The Rogue Theatre has let its own blithe spirit out of the bag in this production, going for the most detailed stage set the company has employed in years.

From the back of the stage a soaring two-story fireplace dominates the theater. Off to the right is a large, billowing curtain. Complimenting these elements are a writing desk, a book case, a long sofa, a round draped table and chair, two straight-backed and upholstered chairs, plus a massive chest containing a wind-up phonograph. There is also an accompanying piano and a musical saw.

The musical saw, played by pianist Russell Ronnebaum, provides the eerie wailing sound we always associate with otherworldly guests possessing supernatural powers.

In 1941, with London enduring Germany's nightly bombing raids, Coward was inspired to write a spirit-lifting comedy for his native England in the depths of World War II. He turned to another battleground, the still-respected institute of marriage and turned it inside-out.

Culturally, to reach the proper attitude for “Blithe Spirit,” we in 2019 must do some serious time-traveling back to that general period of grace and lace in England between the World Wars, when a marriage was supposed to endure forever and divorce was considered a desperate last resort.

Infidelity was a serious no-no, as well. For those less-than-happily-married couples, keeping tabs on a wandering mate could fill every waking hour. The deeper you can get into such a defining mindset, the funnier will seem this Roguish production directed by Joseph McGrath.

Our play opens in the conspicuously upscale home of the popular novelist Charles Condomine (Ryan Parker Knox) and his second wife, Ruth Condomine (Bryn Booth). Charles' first wife Elvira died after only five years of marriage. She had a heart attack while laughing too enthusiastically during a BBC Light Programme on the radio (that's also one of the jokes).

To describe the play's set-up quickly, Ruth is a very serious person who would be hard pressed to laugh at anything. She and Charles have now been married seven years. He's beginning to feel the strain.

So when Madame Arcati accidentally calls back Elvira (Holly Griffith) from the Land of Those Who Passed Over, Charles is rather happy to see her. Ruth is not so happy. Actually, Ruth can't see Elvira anyway. Only Charles can do that.

Coward's clever word play fills the conversation as Ruth demands Elvira go back where she came from...while Charles, beginning to enjoy himself, wonders if he might have the opportunity for a menage a trois that really would be out of this world.

Madame Arcati is outraged when she discovers Charles may have had an ulterior motive for inviting her to his home for a séance in the first place. Madame Arcati takes her professionalism quite seriously.

Of course, none of that is any help in getting Elvira back over to the other side. She doesn't even want to go. Griffith plays Elvira as a vengeful sort, determined not to let Ruth enjoy her husband.

Booth has some great lines as the rightful wife. Her confrontational scenes with Knox are top notch. In that regard, we begin to root a bit for the playful Charles, trying so hard to get a little fun back into his own life.

Nevertheless, it is Madame Arcati who takes the cake, steals the show, gets the biggest laughs. All by playing it straight.

"Blythe Spirit” continues through Nov. 24 with performances at 7:30 p.m. Thursdays-Fridays; 2 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. Saturdays; 2 p.m. Sundays, in the Rogue Theatre, 300 E. University Blvd. Tickets are $42, student rush $15. For details and reservations, 520-551-2053 and
