The Phoenix Boys Choir has been a client of Everyone Loves Buttons for the past several years and we are actually working on their 2014 buttons and zipper pulls right now! The boys get a custom button which corresponds with how much they raised as part of the organizations fundraising efforts, and are acknowledged during a special ceremony.
Founded in 1947, the Phoenix Boys Choir has programs featuring training in voice, music theory, and performance for boys age 7 to 14. Currently, there are approximately 150 young boys and men participating.
These are an amazing group of boys with heavenly voices. Everyone Loves Buttons CEO, Maura Statman, had the pleasure of meeting one of boys who was in a past ballet class with her daughter. The families are engaged in extensive fundraising throughout the year and the higher level choirs travel throughout Europe during the summer. The Phoenix Boys Choir has even won a Grammy! The Choir won a 2000 Grammy Award for Best Choral Performance for its recording of Penderecki’s Credo with the Oregon Bach Festival Orchestra and Chorus conducted by Helmuth Rilling. The group is so in-demand they have their own booking agent and can be hired for performances.
Please consider donating to the Phoenix Boys Choir and help keep this amazing group going!
