Join the Arizona Women’s Chorus

We accept new members in September and January, when rehearsals are open to visitors or those who are interested in joining. Scholarships are available, and tuition is discounted if you pay for an entire year in advance. Previous choral experience is required. The ability to sight read, although not required, is helpful. Please email if you’re interested in joining.

About Rehearsals

We have a great time in our rehearsals, which focus on choral and vocal techniques. The rehearsal year is divided into two semesters; the fall session usually begins the first Monday in September after Labor Day and the spring session begins in early January. There are no rehearsals in the summer.

We rehearse every Monday night from 7–9 PM at St. Philip’s in the Hills.


Our conductor, Terrie Ashbaugh, hears auditions for all new singers to determine how each singer and each voice fits within the chorus. During the audition, she assesses your range and voice part while you sing a melody from a familiar song like “Silent Night.” The audition process takes place before the semester’s rehearsals start.

Why Sing with Us? Because It’s Fun!

What a wonderful experience singing my first concert with this group. There was so much energy and enthusiasm. It was also quite freeing to sing without music… Thanks for welcoming me into this group. — Miriam J

I almost wish we could “bottle up” or “can” some of that incredible energy that was on stage AND in the audience today!!! … This was the most fun I’ve had in a long time!! I’m so grateful to have you friends… I had a momentous time. — Christie R

What a wonderful concert! I was delighted to be a part of it. You’ve got a great thing happening with this group. — Dan K

Life is a song, love is the lyrics.


Sometimes it takes only one song to bring back 1000 memories.


Music is the medicine of the mind.

Three Great Ways to Support Us

AWC depends on tuition, ticket sales, and — like most nonprofits — your financial support. Because of COVID, our concert attendance has been small and, while we have reduced our expenses, we still rely on (and appreciate) your generosity. So please help any way you can.

1 Donate

Donate to AWC and support great music. We’re a 501(c)3 charitable organization. Donating online is easy, fast, and secure.

2 Sponsor

Sponsoring a concert comes with perks. We publish your ad in our program and feature your logo (with a link) on our website, so it’s a great value.
