VOICES IN THE OAKS CHORALE

We love to sing!

The Voices in the Oaks Chorale is a community chorus, comprised of singers from Oracle, the surrounding communities and the general Tucson area. The only requirements to sing with the chorus are a love of singing, the dedication to attend rehearsals and learn music, and to perform to your best ability. The ability to read music while helpful, is not a requirement to be a member of the chorus, and there is no audition!

History:

In February of 2016, Mary Huebner founded the Voices in the Oaks Chorale to bring a vocal music component to the Oracle Piano Society. The purpose was to bring enjoyment of music in general to anyone who wanted to participate, and to enhance appreciation for vocal music in particular. The effect has been to create a chorale community that grows in numbers and musicianship with each concert presented!

The Chorale presents two concerts per season plus a Messiah Sing Along in December.
