Paul Phoenix Workshops

The Philadelphia Boys Choir, Philadelphia Girls Choir and Philadelphia Vocal Conservatory have hired Paul Phoenix (of the Kings Singers:  to lead workshops and master classes for a full weekend on February 21, 22 and 23.  

Paul will be giving a lecture on Monday, February 23 at 7pm. This lecture is open to any interested music director or musician.  Paul’s lecture will be addressing “Bringing the English Choral Tradition to life in performance”.


In addition, we have time slots available for you to bring your choir for a free master class with Paul! You select a song or two that your choir knows well, and he will work with your choir on that selection. Or, if you’d like to use that time in another manner, he is open to suggestions! There will be slots for 4 choirs available. The first slot is for any choir that can make a field trip out of the opportunity, and the other three slots are after school.
