As a choir that has been dedicated to creating music together for nearly four decades, we believe music holds value, beauty, insight, and emotion that is hardly able to be captured by any other medium. Phoenix is an intergenerational, vocationally-diverse group of vocalists that share one key thing in common: a love for singing together. We cherish the power that music has to create community and family-like bonds, which is why you will often hear us refer to ourselves as the Phoenix Family. This family exists to share our talent with everyone, and yet we need you to help make that possible. 

  • A gift to Phoenix allows us to continue to create and share music with you. 
  • A gift to Phoenix enables us to take care of our staff and provide developmental opportunities for our singers. 
  • A gift to Phoenix sustains the value of choral music and creating harmony together in our community for years to come.

A Special Ask in Light of COVID-19

As our local Vancouver community and broad global choral community stares into the eyes of the continued impact of the novel coronavirus, we want to ensure that in times of joy and in times of sorrow that we can continue to offer beauty and hope to our communities through the gift of choral music. Phoenix has ardently continued to adapt to this new reality and offer new digital concerts and online events for our audiences, and socially-distanced and safe rehearsals for our singers. 

It is our wish that in this season of uncertainty and unknown, that you will join us by investing in the future of the local arts through Phoenix and our singers.

The Phoenix Family is stronger than a virus, and we believe the power of music is stronger than even a global pandemic. Though we are no more immune to the threat of such an aggressor, we also believe in the important community we have created over the decades to sustain us during this time.
