I've been singing with the Phoenix Women's Chorus for almost 4 years. I so love the experience and the community of wonderful, supportive women. I have learned so much in this short period of time and am grateful for our Artistic Director, Livia Gho, for her support and encouragement. Livia puts her entire being into leading and educating us.

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!

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.

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 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!
