As a part of Phoenix’s commitment to accessibility and transparency, we have decided to alter how we sell tickets:
In this 2021-2022 season, all ticket sales for both online and in-person concerts will be sold for only $10.
Over the last year we have all become vividly aware of the disparity in our world, and Phoenix is committed to making sure that anyone who wants to listen to the choir can listen to the choir. Historically, we have entertained student and senior discounts but in light of Covid-19 and rising conversations around social equity, we feel it is important to provide each person with the opportunity and the choice to enjoy Phoenix’s performances.
Like many small nonprofits of our stature, Phoenix was sustained by the generous support of our audience in 2020 and 2021. Our gratitude for this cannot be expressed enough.
We are asking those that are able, to consider adding a donation to their ticket price. We have provided suggested donations based on Phoenix’s costs and investment in our programme, however, we offer those as mere suggestions. What’s most important to us is seeing people of all classes, colours, creeds, and communities engaging with the power of choral music. All ticket donations over $25 will be eligible to receive a tax receipt; and for any donation made on an in-person ticket purchase, we would love to gift you with free access to our online concert so that you can share the concert experience with your friends or experience it again yourself from the comfort of your home.
Please know that 100% of donations will go to Phoenix’s operation and production costs as well as allowing for the commissioning of more premieres from underrepresented artists: women, youth, and artists in the BIPOC and LGBTQ communities; as well as developmental opportunities for our singers.
Thank you in advance for your support and excitement for Emerge: A Season of Premieres!
