The Arizona Masterworks Chorale serves our community by performing the finest classical and contemporary choral music
The Arizona Masterworks Chorale Presents
A Free Choral Singers Workshop – July 24, 8:30 AM to Noon
Ascension Lutheran Church, Paradise Valley
This free pre-season event is open to all choral singers in the Valley of the Sun. Meet Scott Youngs, our new music director, learn about plans for the Chorale season, and your opportunity to become a member. Sign-in starts at 8:30, workshop downbeat at 9:00.
Singers will work on healthy vocal production, vowel shape, intonation, timbre, breath control and support, and diction. In the process, singers will learn more about their own strengths and areas that might need improvement.
|Per AMC’s COVID-19 Vaccination Policy, all persons participating in the workshop must document their fully vaccinated status.|
Chorale Auditions Are Open!
AMC will begin chorister auditions for the 2021-2022 season on Saturday, July 31 at Ascension Lutheran Church in Paradise Valley. Auditions are open to any interested singer. To maintain the quality of the Chorale, returning choristers are required to audition annually. For details on what to prepare and to reserve a 15-minute time slot, visit the Auditions page on our website.
Please Note: Per AMC’s COVID-19 Vaccination Policy, all persons wishing to participate in auditions must document their fully vaccinated status.
Support AMC during A Comunity Thrives 2021
A Community Thrives is a grantmaking and crowdfunding program from the USA TODAY NETWORK, which includes USA TODAY and Gannett’s hundreds of local media brands. During the four-week campaign, from July 19 through August 13, you have the opportunity to support AMC, get our 2021-22 season off to a great start, and help us earn bonuses from the sponsors.
Our goal is to raise $5,000 to support our Covid Choral Collaboration project, celebrating the post-pandemic joy of once again gathering to sing together and enjoy live music, while remembering those lost. AMC will commission a new, significant choral work for the season, to be sung as a world premiere at an AMC concert in collaboration with a youth choir from a Phoenix community music organization
Protecting the health of AMC singers, staff, and volunteers during the COVID-19 pandemic is of paramount importance. Choral singing—a group activity that requires breathing intensely in close proximity to one another—is one of the highest-risk activities for the spread of the SARS-CoV-2 virus. Therefore, the AMC Board of Directors believes it is prudent to adopt a vaccination policy that minimizes health risks to all: Any person taking part in any Chorale rehearsal, performance, workshop, or audition, including singers, music staff, featured artists, and volunteers, must show proof of full COVID-19 (SARS-CoV-2) vaccination before participation.
