Tucson Arizona Boys Chorus was founded in 1939 by Eduardo Caso, “the tenor of the American airwaves.” In 1945 TABC was incorporated as a nonprofit educational organization and soon after began radio broadcasts and concert tours of Arizona and the Southwest. Since then they have gained fame from coast to coast, on television and ultimately across the globe, including a performance at the Vatican. Dubbed America’s Singing Ambassadors, they now perform under the leadership of Dr. Julian Ackerley. Dr. Ackerley became director in 1980 and he brings to the organization his extensive teaching experience at all levels, including three degrees in music with emphasis on music education, choral direction and voice performance.

Sons of Orpheus: The Male Choir of Tucson is a not-for-profit choral group created to provide opportunities for men to learn and perform an eclectic repertoire. In the fall of 1991, Artistic Director Grayson Hirst, Professor of Voice at the University of Arizona, founded Sons of Orpheus as a community based choral organization with the aid of a University of Arizona College of Fine Arts Facility Incentive Grant. Starting out with just a few mini-concerts, they soon expanded their concert touring schedule when they were invited to perform at the White House. Since then they have traveled to Mexico and to Europe on five separate tours. Their Christmas at San Xavier program has been played nationwide by PBS several times over the years.
