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).
