The award-winning Tucson Desert Harmony Chorus will bring its “barbershop” style four-part harmony to the Arizona Senior Academy on Tuesday (May 7) at 11:30 a.m. The all-women group is a local chapter of Sweet Adelines International, which holds annual competitions both regionally and internationally.
At the recent four-state competition in Pasadena CA, the chorus placed first in both the mid-sized (55 singers) and quartet divisions, and second overall, under the direction of Karen Meade, who earned a Master Director Certification.
The chorus has been delighting audiences in Tucson with old familiar songs as well as contemporary music since 1986, when they began as the Good Time Singers. The name was changed in 2005 to reflect their love of harmony and connection to the region.
The large chorus draws women from the entire Tucson area, but they also form smaller groups to suit the needs of the venue for local performances. About 20 singers will be bringing a varied program to Academy Village.
