TWC Tribute concert to Karleena Ravenwood

Tucson Women's Chorus

Founded in 2002 the Tucson Women's Chorus is an a cappella singing group in Tucson, AZ, USA. The group sings chants, rounds and songs of cultures and traditions from around the world. The emphasis of the chorus is on using the natural voice and learning songs the way our ancestors learned them for untold millennia: by singing them.

The chorus includes women who have sung in other choruses as well as a current majority of women who love to sing and have never before sung in an organized group, or even considered themselves "singers." Performing in community settings is optional, though encouraged.

New members are welcome!

All women and girls (when accompanied by a singing adult) are encouraged to join the chorus. No auditions, sight-reading or experience is required. More. . .

The open-to-all attitude carries over to our concerts since we do not sell tickets, asking only for donations at the door. No one is turned away.

2016-08-04: Karleena Ravenwood passed away peacefully on Monday, August 1, 2016. Becky Wilson has composed a tribute to Karleena. Read it here.

From Sally Day (Sep 2015)

I thank you, Karleena.

Your directing has made a big difference to me and to my family as well. I have picked up guitar this year and am playing folk songs almost nightly, and often with my daughter singing along with me. I have to say that before joining your chorus, I don't think I would have had the confidence to do that. Please count me in the crowds of people that you have taught to simply slow down, listen and sing. And in doing so, feel immediately better.

Thanks.
