Phoenix Rises! Our First Season - 1983/1984

April 14, 2013 - 8:33pm -- Anonymous (not verified)

If you've ever wondered why our choir is named Phoenix, wonder no more - the story goes like this.

Phoenix "rose from the ashes" of a previous choir called the Chrysalis Vocal Consort, founded in 1979 as an auxiliary group to the Vancouver Cantata Singers and conducted by James Fankhauser. Unfortunately, by the spring of 1982, James Fankhauser's workload had become too great, and the last choir in had to be the first to go!

Celebrating 30 years of Phoenix!

Welcome to a stroll down memory lane as we revisit each year of Phoenix history from our beginnings in 1983 to the present. Along the way, we hope to remind you of the many wonderful choral moments and fun times we have shared. Plus, the photos will remind many of us of our swell fashion choices and awesome hairstyles over the years...

Each week we will feature one year of Phoenix history, on both our website and Facebook page. We will reach the present just in time for our 30th Anniversary Concert in November 2013 - which we sincerely hope you will attend to celebrate our milestone with us!
