"Tucson Girls Chorus provides our girls with amazing experiences that they otherwise would never get!  They learn to work together and trust one another. Their self-esteem is strengthened every time they meet and their huge smiles tell us how much they fun they are having!  The Tucson Girls Chorus experience at Keeling is priceless!"
