Who we are

The Helios Ensemble is a 50-person community vocal performance group based in Tucson, Arizona founded and directed by Dr. Benjamin Hansen. The group creates heartfelt, professional level performances through creative and uplifting group vocal technique.

Founded in 2014, The Helios Ensemble has rapidly risen to become Southern Arizona’s most advanced community chorus. Listen here. Through a selective audition process, and inventive group vocal technique, The Helios Ensemble has made waves with exciting performances of Bach, Brahms, Poulenc, Antognini, Burton, Drum, and more!

The Helios Ensemble is a nonprofit 501(c)3 organization.

The Helios Ensemble is honored to have been awarded a grant from the Arizona Commission on the Arts, an agency of the State of Arizona.  Along with your donations and ticket purchases, this will support our mission to enrich Southern Arizona with our multi-generational choir of amateur and professional singers, conductors, and emerging composers who perform high-quality choral music.
