We are pleased to announce that Kim Waigwa will be our Interim Artistic Director heading into the new year. Kim's passion for and dedication to Desert Voices' vision, her musicianship, proficiency in teaching, and her established relationship with the chorus made her the best person we could possibly ask for to lead Desert Voices. We wish Brayton Bollenbacher all the best in his new role as the Artistic Director of the Columbus Gay Men’s Chorus—a magnificent opportunity at which we know he will excel. Congratulations to Kim on her new adventure with us, and to Brayton on his in Columbus; we are excited for what the future holds!
"Fostering Community Through Song"
Desert Voices is Tucson's premier gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, and ally chorus. We are a non-profit organization dedicated to bringing Arizona beautiful music and to forging a positive and resolute LGBTQA presence in the community. Our unique chorus welcomes all voices to attend our rehearsals and come to our performances, regardless of age, gender, race, creed, or sexuality. Our members are diverse in voice and in background, of gay and straight singers, of all ages and identities. We strive to bring quality, unique music performances and the harmony of community to Tucson. Our purpose is to give a voice to those whose songs go unheard.
Desert Voices is an inclusive chorus organized to provide the opportunity for gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, and supportive others to sing together in order to:
- Build community within and outside the Chorus through our love of music.
- Produce shows that are entertaining and musically excellent.
- Perform music that reflects the lives of the LGBTQA community.
- Promote an ongoing, positive LGBTQA presence in our community.
- Advance positive social change in the larger society.
