The GRAMMY-winning Phoenix Chorale, under the direction of Artistic Director Charles Bruffy, is regarded as one of the finest choral ensembles in North America. What began in 1958 as a small study group of singers became a fully professional choir in 1992 made up of Arizona residents: highly educated and trained singers, teachers and professionals. In 2004, the Phoenix Chorale became the first North American choir to record for the U.K.'s prestigious Chandos Records and since then, the Chorale's recordings have earned a total of ten GRAMMY nominations and three GRAMMY wins. The Phoenix Chorale is ensemble in residence at Trinity Episcopal Cathedral in downtown Phoenix and is sponsored in parth through grants and funding from the Arizona Commission on the Arts and Phoenix Office of Arts and Culture.
