The Phoenix Symphony Chorus is the professional-level performing partner of The Phoenix Symphony and is an organization independent of Ottawa University. The Phoenix Symphony Chorus is featured in numerous Phoenix Symphony concerts each year ranging from classical masterworks to pops and holiday music. The schedule of performances is set by the Phoenix Symphony. Concerts are usually at Phoenix Symphony Hall in central Phoenix, but are also given at other venues throughout Phoenix and Arizona. Periodically the Chorus will perform in such places as New York City or in Europe. Student membership is typically reserved for music majors. Students will be required to participate in concerts that may occur soon before or after the dates of the OUAZ academic semester, unless excused by the Chorus Master.
