Welcome to the Arizona Masterworks Free Choral Singers Workshop!
This free pre-season event is open to all choral singers in the Valley of the Sun to begin your preparation for the 2021-22 season. Meet Scott Youngs, our new music director, learn about his plans for the Chorale, and your opportunity to become a member.
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.
