Tucson Weekly’s 25th Annual ‘Best of Tucson’ Choral Groups, Sept. 2013: “The 50-member Arizona Repertory Singers perhaps tops the list.”
Lift Up Your Voice
We will inaugurate our 30th anniversary season 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.
