Desert Voices Welcomes New General Manager

TUCSON (Observer Update) - As they prepare for the opening of their 20th season on Dec. 6th (7:30 pm) and 7th (3:00 PM) at Grace St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in midtown Tucson, Desert Voices, Arizona’s premiere LGBTS chorus, is pleased to announce the appointment of Jeffrey Scotland to the position of General Manager.

Since arriving in October, Jeff has initially concentrated his efforts on marketing and fund development. Originally from Massachusetts, Jeff began a career in the field of corporate communications after graduating from the University of Massachusetts. Just prior to moving to Tucson, he spent 10 years at the living history museum, Plimoth Plantation in Plymouth, MA where he worked in Public Relations and was one of those responsible for the development of their interpretive program. Since arriving in Tucson, Jeff has pursued a career in performing arts and has appeared at Invisible Theatre, Beowulf Alley, and Live Theatre Workshop. You may also recognize Jeff from his many television commercials and several independent films. At this time, he is very pleased to become part of the Desert Voices Chorus and their mission to build community through music.

Jeff joins DV’s current staff – Chris Tackett (Artistic Director), Alex Tentser (Accompanist), Becky Cohen (Office manager and Chorus Goddess), and the many volunteers who make Desert Voices the exciting chorus that it is. Desert Voices, almost 50 members strong this year, invites the Tucson Community to join them for their concerts, December 6th and 7th, featuring guest star, Namoli Brennet. Each year, Desert Voices carefully prepares musical programs that reflect the diversity of our community while providing concerts that inspire as well as entertain.
