The Phoenix Boys Choir is set to host its annual fundraising gala at Hotel Valley Ho on Saturday, November 9 from 6-10 p.m. This year the theme is “The New Roaring ‘20s” – bringing the swell sounds of a bygone era to Arizona, it’s sure to be the bee’s knees and all that jazz! As the only Grammy Award-winning youth organization in Arizona, Phoenix Boys Choir strives to develop character, discipline and global leadership through the power of music.
“We can’t wait to transport our guests back to an age full of decadence, prosperity, and timeless music,” says Herbert Washington, the newly appointed Harvey K. Smith Artistic Director of the Phoenix Boys Choir.
“This evening will highlight a dynamic new sound and vibrant energy that encapsulates the spirit of the 1920s, while simultaneously ushering the Choir and its respected community into the decade ahead.”
Valley resident and radio host Rich Berra of the nationally syndicated morning show “The Johnjay and Rich Show” will serve as master of ceremonies. The ‘20s-themed cover band, Jackie Lopez & Jazzola will perform live. Then, the highly anticipated choral performances by Phoenix Boys Choir’s Tour and Masters Men’s Choirs.
