TOUR

Music is a universal language shared by all people. This common ground allows choristers in Phoenix Children’s Chorus to create meaningful connection with other from around the world. Through national and international travel, we use performance to express ourselves while learning about the lives of different people and cultures. PCC tours open the world to our choristers allowing them to expand their community and world view far beyond our city, helping them to become global citizens in the future.

CREATING GLOBAL CITIZENS THROUGH DIVERSE TRAVEL

It was through music that I found my passion: social work. We sang songs that highlighted struggle, hope, and the human experience. The music opened our minds to diverse but also universal experiences. Being part of PCC's touring choir taught me to be professional and open minded; and allowed me to learn about the world around me. The tours were wonderful  opportunities to learn lifelong skills such as collaboration, leadership, and punctuality.
