Namoli Brenett to Guest Star at Desert Voices Holiday Concerts

TUCSON (Observer Update) - Tucson’s own nationally known singer/songwriter, Namoli Brenett will join Desert Voices for their Holiday Concerts, December 6, 7:30 p.m. and 7, 3:00 p.m. at Grace St. Paul’s Episcopal Church, 2331 East Adams.

Special guest star Ms. Brenett will also debut a brand new Choral work in honor of Desert Voices’ 20th Season. A winner of the Tucson Folk Festival songwriting competition in 2007, Ms. Brenett was the 2008 Best of Tucson award recipient for Best Performing Artist. She is also a four-time Outmusic award nominee whose music has been featured in the Advocate, Chicago Free Press, No Depression and Performing Songwriter Magazine. She has shared stages with Melissa Ferrick, Jill Sobule, Michelle Shocked, SONIA, Alix Olson, Garrison Starr and Tim Eason. She recently returned to Tucson from promoting her latest release, “Singer Shine Your Light” and now joins with Desert Voices Chorus as they open a new season with a festive Holiday presentation, “Down the Chimney”, an eclectic program featuring traditional seasonal favorites as well as non-traditional, multi-cultural music.

Since it began in 1988 with a handful of people interested in forming a community chorus, Desert Voices has evolved to 50 voices strong under the artistic direction of Chris Tackett. Desert Voices remains Arizona’s premier GLBTS Chorus and is committed to uniting our community through music. Each season, Desert Voices carefully designs musical programs that reflect cultural diversity and provide concerts that inspire as well as entertain.
