Since 1948, the Phoenix Boys Choir has provided top-quality music education for boys ages 7 to 14 and lively entertainment for audiences around the world. The choir has been under the baton of Artistic Director Georg Stangelberger since 1999.

Each season, 25 to 30 singers from the more than 125-member Phoenix Boys Choir are selected for membership in the Town Choir. Ranging from 9 to 14 years of age, these singers come from all parts of the Phoenix area and are the second-ranking choir of the organization. The Town Choir joins the Tour Choir on all season concerts and is the lead choir on the organization’s Showcase Concert.

Touring mainly through the neighboring states of Arizona, the Town Choir has visited New Mexico, California, Utah and Nevada, but also Texas, Alabama, Maryland and Georgia. The Phoenix Boys Choir guarantees every member a world-class music education and one of the most significant experiences of his life. Currently, there are about 125 young boys and men participating.

The Phoenix Boys Choir will also perform in Pasadena on May 16, North Fresno on May 17, Yosemite on May 18 and Santa Maria on May 19.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
