Got Singing Talent?
Arizona Repertory Singers’ Auditions Start Soon!
To kick off its 30th anniversary season, Arizona Repertory Singers is holding auditions for all voice parts from August 5-August 8 and August 12-15, between 10 a.m.-noon and 1 p.m.–3 p.m.
All auditions are held at Fountain of Life Lutheran Church, 710 S. Kolb Rd. (between Broadway Boulevard and 22nd Street).

We will inaugurate our 30th anniversary season this December with performances of J. S. Bach’s Magnificat in D major and Respighi’s distinctive yet seldom-heard work, Laud to the Nativity. Both compositions capture the essence of their respective eras: Bach’s Magnificat is noted for its “Festive” five-part scoring for mixed voices and orchestra, and is a stylistic masterpiece of the Baroque era (1600-1750). Respighi’s pastoral cantata, Laud to the Nativity, has simplistic charm and utilizes his unique orchestral color and subtle harmonic nuance characteristic of early 20th century Italian music.
The concerts take place on Sunday, December 8, 2 p.m. at St. Thomas the Apostle Parish, 5150 N. Valley View Rd., at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, December 13 at Benedictine Monastery, 800 N. Country Club Rd. and at 3 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. on Sunday, December 15 at the Benedictine Monastery.
Critically regarded as “Tucson’s crown jewel of choral groups,” the Arizona Repertory Singers is a 50-voice choral ensemble performing under the direction of Dr. Jeffry Jahn. The group performs a vast and diverse repertoire spanning Renaissance and Baroque works, spirituals, Americana, modern music and new compositions it has commissioned. The singers, selected through a rigorous audition process, maintain full-time careers in business, education, engineering, information technology, law, medicine, social service, science and the arts.
The a cappella choral ensemble performs in venues that feature stunning acoustics, which showcase the natural sound and blend of the group’s voices.
