After having participated in many activities and as a former music educator, I can attest to the quality of this organization and their many activities. There is no other volunteer group in Tucson that has done as much as Arts Express to promote the Arts to the young people of this community. The public performances are of professional quality and the Summer Institute for young people is something that should be copied in other cities.

I have been a member of the choir for many years and have enjoyed every minute of it. I have also sung for many other concerts, like Let Freedom Sing, Follow the Star, etc. Several years ago, I moved to the Phoenix area, and I miss choir so much! I do still participate in some of the concerts when I can, and thoroughly enjoy myself! Last weekend was Gospel concert. WOW!!!! I didn't sing in this concert, but got to sit and listen this year. It was the best ever!!!! I had so much fun listening to the music!! Every morning all week I have been waking up with one of the songs in my head!! I know many people benefited from hearing this concert too!

Arts Expresses blesses the lives of all who participate and attend their events. I have attended Arts Express events for 10 years and am impressed each and every time by the professioanlism, creativity, innovation, dedication and passion of all those involved. This cherished program is a highlight in our community and I hope it receives the funding needed to continue for generations to come.

I have sung in two "Follow The Star" performances along with singing in the Catalina Foothills Church choir for the past three years.
I can honestly say that it is such an unlifting and inspirational experience to work under the direction of Dr. Joan Ashcraft. She is an amazing leader and the community is so blessed to have the opportunity to attend and enjoy such amazing musical performances.I

I have been involved with Arts Express Let Freedom Sing for several years as a participant in the choir. I am honored to be a part of this community outreach. It gives me such joy to see so many happy faces waving flags and appreciating the patriotic music. Children are always involved as they carry the flags. What a valuable heritage we are passing on to the younger generation. We are a part of the most wonderful country on earth and this is truly a time to honor our heroes, both in the military and in our community.

The concert was a true blessing and a wonderful spiritual uplift. We have attended the concerts that have been presented for the last 10 years, and each one gets better and better.

Arts Express is changing lives and the community through the power of the arts. Music is healing to the soul and enriches all of our lives. Our children can only benefit from this fine organization.

My husband and I have had the opportunity to play and sing in the concerts of Arts Express and CFC under the direction of Dr. Joan Ashcraft. Our participation has been rewarding in the sharing of the joy and spiritual uplifting that only music can provide.

We feel very blessed to have attended almost every concert that has
been presented by Joan Ashcraft in participation with Catalina Foothills Church during the past ten or so years. . Dr. Joan Ashcraft is our Music Director and is so gifted in her selections of music, musicians and vocalists. the last concert, "LIFT
ME UP" was no exception. The music was wonderful and always,
without fail, lifts the heart of every hearer. They represent our church
and community in such a marvelous way. We are SO very blessed to
have such a wonderful director and musicians who God has
gifted with such great talent. A wonderful perfomance which has left us with music still ringing in our hearts and a desire and eagerness for the next concert.
We submit this review with grateful hearts filled with thanks.
Dan and Nancy Lupo,

I have sung in Choirs under Joan Ashcraft for 5 years. Her conducting brings out the best in vocal & instrumental performers, and pleases audiences of all ages and experience!
Arts Express also greatly benefits the younger, upcoming musicians in many of Tucson's schools under the OMA Program (Opening Minds Through the Arts). As we have heard in the media, many school's budgets will not be able to include training in Fine Arts/Music, and Arts Express will be able to provide such at little cost to Student or School.
Their programs are win/wins for individual & the Public alike!!!
