I've been a singing member of the Phoenix Women's Chorus for about 2 years now. I love it! Singing is so good for the soul. It's a great group of women with awesome direction. It's a commitment of time and energy, but what I get in return is SO worth it!

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I would love to see me women and more diversity in our group.

For 13 years this chorus has been an important part of my life, speaking out in song for gay/lesbian and woman-identified issues. The quality of the music is beautiful and professional. I am proud to be a donor, volunteer, singer and supporter of this organization. In addition to the music, the chorus provides moral support to many women as they face life crises.

I have been a member of Arizona Women in Tune for the last nine years and am also a donor to the organization. This chorale is exceptional in its performance of a wide variety of music and is also an important voice for lesbian issues and diversity in our community. I have been pleased to participate as a singer, volunteer and audience participant. The organizaion is exceptionally well-run also, and has a well qualifed director and staff.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Reviewing audience feedback from performances, attending performances and other events, participating at one time as a Board Member of the organization; participating in strategic planning for the organization

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

At this time, I have no specific changes to suggest. The organization is well-run and responsive to members and the public.

Well, my dear sister and sister-in-law are i. the Phoenix Women's Chorus and I have not had the privelege of hearing them in person, I wm on the east coast, Although I have listed to quite a few beautiful concerts on the computer and youtube! I have enjoyed them deeply! They are conducted very well, the harmony is amazing! I can also hear all the different sections, individually and blended when they harmonize! I can also hear the voices of my family members! i love the organ also! I have an AZWIT CD in my car from a few years ago, and when I need
to relax and feel uplifted I put it in, the first song is Cradle Me! I just love that and (I sing along)!

I have been a singer, donor, board member and volunteer for six years for Azwit. This choir provides a place for women to be accepted and to find their voices. Azwit is very welcoming and accepting organization. Azwit puts on three premier concerts each year along with various community outreach events.

Hi, my name is Barb Morrissey and I am a major donor for Arizona Women in Tune, a 501c3 nonprofit all women's chorus in the central Phoenix valley. They are a premiere arts organization, and next year will be their 20th anniversary. What I appreciate about them is that they provide a voice for all women to express themselves, and they encourage diversity for all people.

I have been singing with this choir off and on since 2005. The quality of the music keeps getting better and better. You would never know that this is a non-audition choir. The director, Lucik Aprahamian, is phenomenal. Along with creating beautiful music, these women are dedicated to increasing lesbian visibility and are always willing to help others.

Arizona Women In Tune is more than simply a choir. It is a wonderful group of women who support each other through life's uncertainty, while working toward greater lesbian visibility within the community. The repertoire is as diverse as the women that make up this incredible organization. Each concert brings something new and exciting. The dedication of the staff, board and volunteers is evident in everything that this organization has and will continue to accomplish. Anyone who has ever been a part of this organization or has the privilege of seeing AZWIT perform is part of a family that compares to nothing else. The community has been lucky to have AZWIT for the past 20 years and I hope that we can add another 20 years to our legacy.

I was visiting my Mom in Phoenix in June and had the opportunity to hear Arizona Women in Tune sing. Wow! I have performed with the Bel Canto Chorus of Milwaukee as well as the Milwaukee Symphony Chorus under the direction of Margaret Hawkins. In addition, I have sung professionally. It's hard to believe this is an all-volunteer and non-audition choir! They are a joy to hear and I can tell they work really hard to be so excellent! If I were to live in the Phoenix area, I would be honored to be accepted into this choir!

It is a true privilege to make music with this group of women, who truly care about giving back to the community through music!!!

Arizona Women in Tune has been such a gift. This is my second season singing with this amazing group of women under the direction of Dr. Lucik Aprahamian. The dedication and love the women have for this group is something I’ve never experienced before. We work very hard to bring a beautiful and unique experience to our audience every performance. From the day I joined I’ve been welcomed and cared for and genuinely appreciated. When Arizona Women in Tune had the opportunity to go to GALA and I didn’t think I would be able to afford the trip, they made sure I got there, and it was one of he best experiences of my life. I will always and forever be changed for the better by the time I’ve spent with Arizona Women in Tune.
