A message from our Board Chair

Dear Friends,

George Martinez
George Martinez, Ed.D, Chair of the Phoenix Chorale Board of Directors

If ever there was a hidden treasure in plain sight, it is the Phoenix Chorale. You – our valued friends and supporters – have made all of this possible:

  • World premieres of new works
  • Professional artists with experience rivaling that of any arts group
  • A Grammy-winning, renowned conductor
  • Sold-out concerts
  • And above all, true to its mission, “distinction in choral artistry”

Your generous donations have made all the difference.  Thank you!

I’ve been blessed to not just watch the Phoenix Chorale reach these heights, but to participate in them as well. As a former singer (for five intense seasons in the bass section) and now Board Chair, my 360-degree view inspires my passion for the Chorale.

Some peak experiences of my life have been singing with the Chorale. I can testify firsthand that creating sounds with this ensemble produces indescribable moments – hearts beat faster, provoking great emotion shared by fellow singers, audience members, and yes, Charles. So I want others to experience even a fraction of what has meant so much to me.

But you need not sing under Charles’ baton (if he ever used one!) to appreciate the Chorale and support all that it does to bring unmatched beauty into our lives.

Will you help keep our success going by considering a generous year-end gift to support the Phoenix Chorale today?

If you have any questions, ideas, or opinions about the Chorale, or if I may elaborate on this heartfelt appeal, please contact me at 623-377-3597 or at Thank you in advance.

May you have joyous holidays, filled with health, happiness – and music!

George A. Martinez, Ed.D., Chair
Phoenix Chorale Board of Directors
