Final Phoenix Boys Choir Experience Workshop takes place April 11

The final Phoenix Boys Choir Experience Workshop of the 2014-15 season takes place Saturday, April 11.

Phoenix Boys Choir

Boys aged 7 and older with an unchanged voice are invited to spring into summer with music that will inspire you to get outdoors. The Phoenix Boys Choir’s free music workshop teaches participants to learn how to sing, read and perform music like “Route 66” and “Surfin’ USA,” culminating in a short performance for family and friends to showcase everything the boys learned.

Boys will also enjoy a short performance by the Phoenix Boys Choir. Registration is at PhoenixBoysChoir.org.

The PBC Experience Music Workshops take place from 9 a.m to noon at the Phoenix Boys Choir building, 1131 E. Missouri Ave., Phoenix.  There is no cost for
the camp. Snacks and water will be provided.

Participating boys will sing alongside current Phoenix Boys Choir members studying the fundamentals of expressive choral singing, music literacy, and concert etiquette lead by members of the Phoenix Boys Choir Artistic staff and Phoenix Boys Choir alumni.

Campers will participate in team-building activities to help build character, self-confidence, and promote a unified ensemble.

The PBC Experience Music Workshops are supported by Scottsdale League for the Arts.
