Sonoran Sounds is an all-volunteer group of people who treasure music. Singers, the director, and the accompanist rehearse and perform for the love of music and to share that commitment with audiences throughout the northwest valley of Phoenix. The chorale is made up of women who are individually experienced with backgrounds in different fields of music, including musical theater, teachers of music, vocal jazz, classical performance and various instruments. These talents appear as soloists or to accompany the group instrumentally.
Four to six concerts each year is typical in a rehearsal and performance season. The season is September through April. Rehearsals are 9 a.m.-noon Mondays at Sun City West Christian Church, at 151st and R.H. Johnson in Sun City West. Additional sectional rehearsals are scheduled as needed to achieve appropriate ensemble unity.
Chorale business matters are managed by a five member Board of Directors with AdHoc non-voting positions as well.
