For Phoenicians, the cost of a decent classical concert needn’t include airfare to Carnegie Hall. Hailed as one of the finest professional choral ensembles in North America, the Phoenix Chorale (formerly Phoenix Bach Choir) has won two
Grammy Awards over the past five years and got a positive write-up in the The New York Times. In January, the choir chalked up another plaudit, winning iTunes’ Best Classical Vocal Album of 2012 award for Northern Lights: Choral Works by Ola Gjeilo. Originally created by a small study group of singers in 1958, the Phoenix Chorale went pro in 1990 and is composed solely of Arizona residents. To hear them, you can get the Northern Lights CD ($17.99 on amazon.com) or see their performances on March 2 and 3 honoring Women’s History Month. 100 W. Roosevelt St., Phoenix, 602-253-2224, phoenixchorale.com
