Established in 1960, the Phoenix College McConnell Singers Women's Choir has become a fixture in the Valley of the Sun arts community. They are a dedicated ensemble of singers whose mission includes providing women of various backgrounds and musical abilities the opportunity to share their voice and experience a variety of repertoire written primarily for treble voices. It is also the choir's mission to serve the community by performing high caliber music with artistry, commitment, spirit, musical attention and presence. Additionally, through community service and outreach, the choir brings choral music to audiences who might not otherwise have access to this art form.
The choir's repertoire includes music of all eras, genres, and styles with emphasis on promoting new works created for women's choirs. Travel highlights include tours of the Czech Republic, the British Isles, and Hawaii. Each spring the choir sponsors the McConnell Singers Vocal Arts and Choral Composition competition awarding scholarships to music students at Phoenix College.
Women who wish to join the ensemble are asked to contact Dr. Miller for more information.
