Phoenix Chorale | Flagship Ensemble

The GRAMMY¬ģ Award-winning¬†Phoenix Chorale¬†is regarded as one of the finest choral ensembles in North America. The 28-voice¬†chorus has developed this reputation through live performances across the U.S. and in Canada, along with a series of recordings¬†treasured by music lovers and played by radio stations around the world. Originally called the Bach & Madrigal Society of Phoenix, the¬†Phoenix Chorale was founded in 1958 and at that time focused on the music of the Renaissance and Baroque periods. Most recently,¬†the Phoenix Chorale was known as the Phoenix Bach Choir, a name the group performed under for nearly twenty years. What began¬†in 1958 as a small study group of singers became a fully professional choir in 1992 made up of Arizona residents: highly educated and¬†trained singers, teachers and professionals. In 2004, the Phoenix Chorale became the first North American choir to record for the¬†U.K.‚Äôs Chandos Records and since then, the Chorale‚Äôs recordings have earned a total of ten Grammy¬ģ nominations and three¬†Grammy¬ģ wins.
