The Phoenix Boys Choir, through educating boys in the art of singing and performing the finest music in the boy choir tradition, develops character, discipline, leadership, global awareness, and a strong commitment to excellence, thereby contributing to the greater Phoenix musical life and enhancing Arizona's cultural reputation nationally and internationally.
The Grammy-award winning Phoenix Boys Choir (PBC) has a rich 74-year history that has been a source of community pride, inspiration and joy for our region. The PBC was created to give boys the opportunity to sing, to work together as artists and to express their emotional lives. We continue a long tradition of boys singing music created especially for them, a tradition that shows the special and ethereal sound of the unchanged boy's voice. For most American boys who want to sing, there aren't many opportunities like the PBC.We believe that music unites, inspires, and changes children's lives and in doing so, can change Phoenix communities. We believe no boy should be turned away due to inability to pay. Our programs feature training in voice, music theory, and performance for boys. Each year, we offer a full season of concerts offering a wide repertoire from classical to popular selections. Our choristers learn emotional intelligence, leadership, discipline, teamwork and empathy; skills that last a lifetime. Our choristers have the opportunity to travel nationally and internationally. These experiences open up the world and help them develop independence, problem-solving skills and confidence, in addition to cultural awareness.
