Choral/Vocal Studies

Choral/Vocal Studies at Phoenix College are comprised of five outstanding performance ensembles, plus voice classes and private instruction:

  • Concert Choir (MUP153)
  • McConnell Singers Women's Community Chorus (MUP 157)
  • Phoenix Community Choir (MUP 150)
  • Bell Canto Handbell Choir (MUP155)
  • Vocal Studies

This ensemble (formally known as the Voices of Phoenix College) has been entertaining the Phoenix community under various conductors for over 70 years. Highlights of their history include participation in concerts in Hawaii, New York City, San Francisco, Reno, and San Diego. Previous directors have been such luminaries as Dr. Harvey Smith, Kay Poore, and Dr. J. Edmund Hughes.

A chorus of mixed voices (SATB) singing a mix of musical styles and periods, accompanied and unaccompanied, we welcome all interested singers with or without previous experience. Rehearsals are held Monday through Thursday during regular school hours. Participants are eligible for scholarship money at the end of each semester as a thank you for representing the college through music.
