Writer Cathalena E. Burch of the Arizona Daily Star reported July 10 on Olivia Pietz and Naomi Simpson, members of the Tucson Girls Chorus advanced choir, were selected to represent Arizona as delegates at  “Let Freedom SING!” Girlchoir National Convention in Philadelphia later this July:

Two young Tucson vocalists will represent not only their hometown but the state of Arizona in the inaugural Let Freedom Sing Girlchoir National Convention in Philadelphia later this month.

The girls also will be among the choir of 100 — two from each state — likely to perform at the Democratic National Convention, being held July 25-28 in Philadelphia. The Girlchoir Convention is July 24-29.

Convention spokeswoman Laura Archbold said the choral event is about empowering girls through music.

“It’s not about politics and it’s not about endorsing anything,” she said. “It’s about hope … for America and working together and being united.”

Olivia Pietz and Naomi Simpson, members of the Tucson Girls Chorus advanced choir, were selected to represent Arizona. Naomi, who spent five years with the choir before graduating from high school this year, plans to study music therapy at Arizona State University. Olivia, a junior at University High School, is starting her third year with the Tucson Girls Chorus.

Mariah McDonald and Sophie Michael, Bella Voce Singers from the Young Naperville Singers, have been selected to be Singer Delegates at a six-day choral festival that promises once in a lifetime experiences for the singers!

Two – and only two – young women choristers from each of the 50 states will come together to celebrate the power of girls singing together. Surely, this choir of national unity will steal some of the spotlight that will shine brightly on Philadelphia for another gathering that happens to be taking place at the same time – the Democratic National Convention. Far from a partisan event, the “Let Freedom SING!” Girlchoir National Convention plans to show the country how choral music unites us all, hoping to inspire all public servants to seek ways that bring us together as a nation.
