Finding Community and Creating Beauty Through Song
Can you name a song by Ella Fitzgerald, Maria Callas, Kirsten Chenoweth, or Taylor Swift? Women have always been empowered by song. Whether it’s singing around the campfire, karaoke with friends or singing with an organized chorus, song is a way to show joy, sorrow, or just allow for a burst of expression. At Songfest, some of the most talented women singers from across the state will perform and lend their voices to a powerful and beautiful concert experience.
The annual festival concert features singers from the Grammy Award-winning Phoenix Chorale; the Women’s Chorale of Northern Arizona University; the McConnell Singers Women’s Choir of Phoenix College; and the international award-winning Phoenix Girls Chorus Cantabile and Bella choirs.
This year the Phoenix Girls Chorus is donating tickets to the AZ School for the Blind in celebration and honor of three women, all blind, who have developed their passion for singing and shared the beauty of their voices with groups that perform at Songfest.
If you would like a heart-warming story to feature, we can provide singers of all ages to interview about the role singing plays in their lives. Danya Tiller, the artistic director of the Phoenix Girls chorus is also a singer with the Phoenix Chorale.
The 5th Annual Women’s Festival “Songfest” Concert takes place Saturday, March 25, 2017, 7:30 p.m., Camelback Bible Church, 3900 E. Stanford Drive, Paradise Valley, Arizona 85253.
