Biography: The Phoenix Girls Chorus is comprised of five choirs of girls ages seven to eighteen. Their music education program includes vocal development, performance skills, sight singing, music theory, foreign language diction, and choreography.
The focus of the Phoenix Girls Chorus is to provide a nurturing environment where singers develop their music skills to the best of their ability, form lasting friendships, develop strength and independence, and create lifetime memories. Under the direction of their Artistic Director Danya Tiller, Cantabile, the premiere ensemble, won first place in their choir division and were awarded a gold diploma for their excellence in performance at the Franz Schubert International Choral Competition in 2012. They performed in the Vatican in 2014 and debuted at Carnegie Hall in 2016 with Vivaldi’s Gloria. The Chorus has performed locally with the Phoenix Symphony and toured throughout the United States, Canada, as well as Europe.
They offer monthly opportunities for singers to volunteer. They serve dinner, pack boxes, write notes and cards and sing for a variety of under-served community groups, such as veterans, homeless, seniors and domestic abuse victims.
