2009 Best of Phoenix Award

The Phoenix Chorale has won a New Times Best of Phoenix Award:

Best Grammy-Winning Group You May Have Never Heard (or Heard Of)

Read about it here or pick up a copy of this week’s New Times and turn to page 260, in the Nightlife section.

"Rebirth" by Holly Sheppard

Also in this week’s New Times issue is artwork by our own Holly Sheppard.  Titled “Rebirth,” you can find it on page 235. Holly’s “Rebirth” was inspired in part by Ola Gjeilo’s piece “Phoenix” (which we premiered last season).  Ola Gjeilo is the Phoenix Chorale’s composer-in-residence this season.

You can see “Rebirth” in person at the New Times’ Wonderland exhibit opening at the [merz]project (1437 N. 1st Street, Phoenix) on October 2 or any time during October.  The Wonderland exhibit will showcase all of the art created for this special annual edition of the New Times by artists from all over the Valley.  The [merz]project is next door to the Burton Barr Central Library.

AND on October 16, we’ll perform for FREE at the [merz]project.  A special evening reception on October 16 features a performance by the Phoenix Chorale.  Details here.
