Now is the time to support the arts in Arizona. Over the next few months ASU Gammage will be hosting South Pacific, American Idiot, and Wicked. The Arizona Ballet will be presenting Monix:Botanica, The Sleeping Beauty, and Play. The Arizona Opera will be performing Madame Butterfly, and of course, the Phoenix Symphony, has a packed season. In addition, the valley has numerous other venues for music and the performing arts such as The Mesa Arts Center, Herberger Theater, Scottsdale Center for the Arts, and The Musical Instrument Museum, just to name a few, who provide a wide variety of artistic performances.
Around the country, many smaller theaters and symphonies are closing their doors due to budget cuts and low ticket sales. If the arts are to survive in the valley, we must all do our part to support them through ticket purchases. In that vein, stay tuned for contests to win tickets from The Music Store in support of the arts.
Come Sing With Sweet Adelines International’s Fiesta Chorus
Music Throughout the Year
Sweet Adelines International’s Fiesta Chorus is searching for women singers in the East Valley area. Women of all ages who enjoy singing are invited to attend the chorus’ weekly rehearsal on Thursday at 7PM at All Saints Catholic Church, McKay Hall in the rear. The Fiesta Chorus is one of the hundreds of Sweet Adelines International choruses that make up this worldwide organization of women who sing four-part barbershop harmony. Musical knowledge is not necessary to join — voice training and music education are valuable components of member’s benefits. Any woman of average singing ability, with or without vocal training, will find a part that fits her voice range with the help of Sweet Adelines International directors and leaders. The Fiesta Chorus performs regularly throughout the community, offering its talent for entertainment at civic events and charitable functions, in addition to promoting harmony and friendship among women.
