Our leadership

aBOUT OUR choir

"Deseret" is a term used in The Book of Mormon meaning "honeybee," a symbol of industry and self-sufficiency.

The ARIZONA DESERET CHOIR is a community service music organization of approximately 50 men and women from the Phoenix area. The choir has performed with combined vocal and orchestral groups in all sizes of venues throughout the state of Arizona. Performances have included a wide music variety, from challenging masterworks to pieces that are down-right fun. The music we perform is meant to uplift and ennoble all, and echoes the statement:
"... If there is anything virtuous, lovely, or of good report or praiseworthy, we seek after these things."​     – ​LDS Article of Faith​​ (Philippians 4:8)
