Our choir has had many wonderful opportunities, both locally and internationally. The Sounds of the Southwest Singers enjoy working with notable musicians and conductors while visiting distinguished locations. Our goal is to continue making a difference musically in our community and wherever our talents take us.
We perform a series of themed concerts year-round throughout the Phoenix metro area, in many venues. We sing secular, sacred, classical, patriotic, Broadway, and pop musical genres. Our most popular concert series is our Variety of Sounds concerts which gives our audiences a sampling of our vast musical styles. We are directed by Matt Deller and accompanied by Eric Fish.
The chorale also has opportunities to perform locally, nationally and internationally. We performed with Southwestern College from Chula Vista, CA in October, 2015 and will tour England and France with the Sounds of the Southwest Singers later this summer. We also performed on stage at Carnegie Hall in February, 2016. In 2017 we will travel to Washington D.C to sing in the National Memorial Day Choral Festival.
