The Phoenix Girls Chorus, founded in 1981, is an established choral organization for girls and young women from every community in the Phoenix, Arizona metropolitan area. The Chorus is a private, not-for-profit organization that offers an exemplary choral music education to girls between the ages of seven and eighteen in program of five choir levels. The focus of the 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. This program transforms girls into outstanding young women who are skilled musicians as well as leaders who serve their community joyfully. Our singers perform in six major concerts each year as well as for invited public appearances and community service activities. The upper three choirs tour the USA and abroad every year, participating in festivals and performing concerts while meeting new people and exploring a variety of geographical and cultural riches.
This year we presented our sixth annual women’s chorus festival, Songfest, which brings together intergenerational female singers from all over the state to unite and celebrate their voices in song.
In 2016 the Phoenix Girls Chorus and 150 other women of all ages from around the country premiered a performance of the newest treble edition of Antonio Vivaldi’s well-loved Gloria RV 589 in New York’s prestigious Carnegie Hall, under the direction of our Artistic Director, Danya Tiller. As the Chorus completes its 36th season this year our top choir, Cantabile, is honored to be performing and competing at the Llangollen International Musical Eisteddfod in Wales.

Our graduates are young women who love the arts, value education,
