Sun City Grand Music Club

Our Mission Statement: The Music Club is composed of residents who share a love of MUSIC. It is dedicated to the performance of Vocal and Instrumental Music for enjoyment by both our participants and the general public.

Working toward this goal has afforded our club members the opportunity to bring forth their many talents in the areas of singing and playing instruments, both singly and in groups, as well as with backstage and technical activities.

Our Main Performances take place in the Sonoran Plaza and happen many tines throughout the year. Our Chorus/Grand Singers and Desert Divas put on concerts in April and December, and we have Showcases and Celebration Events in January, May and November. Twice a year in January and March are the Classical and Popera Concerts. Every Tuesday, except for holidays, is our Tuesday Night Live which takes place in the Cimarron Center. There is also a wonderful Nightclub Series, which takes place twice a month, year round, with contracted groups that perform here in our Cimarron Nightclub. Finally, we have our Grand Cabaret Series, which takes place four times per year in January, April, July and October and brings contracted professional performers to the Sonoran Plaza stage.
