Always proud to welcome again to an old friend, Georg Stangelberger conducting the Phoenix Boys Choir and the Men´s Choir. It was almost “yesterday” when he came with his choir to Spain almost 15 years ago and since then they falled in love with the venues and audiences. On their past second tour , few years ago they sang almost 17 concerts in 20 days across the Iberian peninsula including both countries and the area of Lisbon. This early June they will start touring across the Northern Spain, probably the richest area in Spain about choral music tradition with churches and monasteries along the coast that were following the old pilgrimage roads to Santiago. From mystical Galicia they will drive towards Porto and Coimbra where they will sing before entering in Salamanca and then Madrid and Andalusia. We will keep you update the during the next days. George Stangelberger conducted the Viena Boys Choir before he moved with his family to Phoenix (Arizona, USA) where he had been teaching and trainning the children´s voices for over a decade building what is consider among the best Children´s Choirs in North America. The Phoneix Boys Choir will be singing in Gijon(June1st), Santiago de Compostela( June 3rd), Porto ( June 4th), Coimbra ( June6-7 TBC), Salamanca(June 8th), Alcala de Henares ( June 9th), Madrid( June 10th) Sevilla( June13th)Jaén(June15) and the final concert in Malaga (June16).
The last Children Choir this season in Spain is the New York Children Chorus that will be on tour at the end of June and will sing in Valencia, Granada and Madrid between June 23-28.
