In December 2014 and December 2015, ARS was invited to perform for students from Tucson area Title 1 schools at the Berger Performing Arts Center, through a sponsorship by Act One, a not-for-profit organization that engages students from underserved schools in arts learning opportunities to create meaningful enrichment and exposure to the arts.
Based on the positive response from students and teachers, ARS continues to present concerts sponsored by Act One. Over the last three years ARS has performed for more than 1,275 students, and will continue its partnership with two concerts for students from Title 1 schools during 2017-18. We look forward to this unique opportunity to educate young students about live performance and the choral arts.
“Thank you, Arizona Repertory Singers, for sharing your talents with hundreds of students on field trips and with Culture Passes that let more people experience the wonder of the arts.”
—Geri Wright, Executive Director, Act One
