The Women of Quail Creek will be treated to one of Tucson’s premier musical groups during its May 23 program in the Madera Clubhouse Ballroom. Beginning at 6:30 p.m. the Tucson Girls Chorus will present a selection of music from around the world.

Founded in 1984 by Margie Kersey, the Tucson Girls Chorus consists of seven different choirs ranging from the Bumblebees to an Alumnae Choir. Membership in the Tucson Girls Chorus is open to girls and young women in grades K through 12 and an Alumnae Chorus is open to graduates of the Tucson Girls Chorus. The Chorus has also expanded its programming to serve neighborhoods and communities such as Sahuarita, which are farther away from its principle River Road location.

The mission of the Tucson Girls Chorus is to prepare a diverse group of young women to be confident leaders through participation in a well-constructed educational program that emphasizes music, performance, leadership training and community service. The Chorus is committed to inclusion in all aspects of participation and membership as well in their educational program. The Tucson Girls Chorus aims to embrace and celebrate the diversity of Tucson and southern Arizona.

Since 2006 the Advanced Choir has traveled throughout the U.S. as well as Canada, Argentina and the Czech Republic. The Jubilate Choir tours regionally throughout the U.S. each spring. The Tucson Girls Chorus is under the artistic direction of Executive Director Marcela Molina. Dr. Molina is a native of Bogota, Columbia who joined the staff of the Chorus in 2006. She holds a doctorate in choral conducting from The University of Arizona. For further information regarding the Tucson Girls Chorus consult their website, www.tucsongirlschorus.org.

There is no charge for this event that is open to members and guests who have not previously attended a TWOQC program.
