Phoenix has been exceptionally lucky to have had two wonderful artistic directors at the helm in the years before Dr. Graeme Langager became the newest leader in the summer of 2012. Professor Cortland Hultberg was the director from our inception in 1983 until his retirement in 1995. And then Dr. Ramona Luengen - who had been a student of Cort's at UBC, became our second artistic director, from 1995 to spring of 2012. Much of the success of Phoenix through our first three decades can be attributed to their talents and commitment.
