Choir Tour 2017

Our choir trip to Malta in May/June was very enjoyable and though our first concert was poorly attended, this was more than made up for by a very warm and appreciative reception at the second, on Gozo. 

We visited several sites, including the capital, Valetta, which was a real fortress town, with wonderful views over the harbour and neighbouring islands.

Altogether a wonderful experience for all concerned.

Our next tour will be in May/June 2019, venue yet to be decided.
 


 We have recorded our first CD

 Phoenix Singers - Birmingham
 
Phoenix Singers is a mixed voice choir performing a wide variety of choral works. It is based in south west Birmingham.  Formed in 2001, Phoenix is currently 120 strong and, as well as performing regularly in and around Birmingham, has established an international reputation through a series of European tours.

James Llewelyn Jones is our Musical Director.  James is well-known for his work as Conductor of the Canoldir Male Choir and the Birmingham Hospitals'  Choir.  He has also taken up an appointment as Conductor of the prestigious Rhos Choir.  
We are also fortunate to have a superb accompanist for the choir, in the person of Sara Wilander, who is a real 'treasure' being both highly proficient and totally unflappable!
  
If you love singing and would like to join us, we would love to hear from you!
Check out our 'Membership' page, or just turn up any Wednesday evening in term time, at 7.15 pm.
We rehearse at Rowheath Pavilion, Heath Road, Bournville, B30 1HH. Next term will start on Wednesday 10 January 2018.

Raising funds for charity
Phoenix Singers hold two major fund raising concerts each year, one at Christmas and the other in the summer. 
We are proud to have donated over £20,000 to charities that we have supported over the last fifteen years; Breast Cancer, West Midlands Kidney Appeal, St. Mary's Hospice, Conductive Education,  Action for Children, MNDA, and Lymphoma Association.  
Our Spring Concert is usually by invitation of a local church or other organisation, when they pay our costs and then keep the proceeds to support their own work.
The charity we will be supporting in 2017/18 is the Phoenix Children's Foundation, established in 2006 with the sole aim of enriching and enhancing the lives of youngsters and their families living with illness, disability or lack of opportunity.
