Since 1947, the Grammy-award winning Phoenix Boys Choir has provided choral music training, education, performance opportunities and learning experiences that instill excellent musicianship and critical values in young people. Our program develops responsible, caring, creative young people who will be our future leaders and citizens endowed with a passion for the performing arts and community.
The Phoenix Boys Choir has performed across the United States, including performances for four United States Presidents. The choir has performed in 25 countries over the last 20 years, including singing side by side with the Vienna Boys Choir in the famous Court Chapel. Their concert performances include a wide repertoire of music from classical to popular selections. We are excited to host 50-55 boys from as young as 7 years old through adult.
The Valley Chamber Chorale is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to enlightening the community and enriching its culture. Through skilled performances of choral programs featuring an eclectic repertoire with emphasis upon unaccompanied works of the Renaissance and selections by Twentieth Century American composers, the Chorale offers entertaining and educational concerts at a variety of venues throughout the Phoenix Metropolitan area.
Please join the Valley Chamber Chorale as the celebrate 35 years of bringing great choral music to residents of the Valley of the Sun. This program will feature a cross-section of a cappella as well as accompanied choral works, with sacred as well as secular texts, representing various composers from the past five centuries. In a nod to the ensemble’s three-and-a-half decades of performing together, many selections will be drawn from past concert programs; they will be pieces that the Chorale members have enjoyed singing, or that audiences have particularly appreciated – or that ensemble leader Dr. Christopher Samuel has especially liked teaching and introducing to the public.
Community milestones of this nature are always fun occasions, so we hope that you will help mark this anniversary while simultaneously enjoying some of the finest music from the choral canon.
