Our Core Values
To provide a choral music education – The primary goal of the Phoenix curriculum will be centered on classical music theory and training.
To provide performance opportunities – Performance opportunities play choir to present well-rehearsed programs to suitable audiences.
To provide a positive learning environment – A positive learning environment is encouraged by behavior standards and a dress code. A positive attitude is encouraged for all participants of this organization.
Fostering a team effort – Each voice is essential to the sound of the entire choir. Each voice is essential in rehearsal and in performance. A choir is very much a team effort, every voice is a first string voice, there are no bench sitters.
Fostering self-discipline and self-esteem – The self-discipline of weekly rehearsals and daily practice to perfect the art of singing provides a strong base of confidence which results in individual self-esteem. As a choir working towards a performance goal, the discipline of the group will result in a concert that builds the choir’s self-esteem.
