Phoenix Re-visited

This week Maritime Magazine checks in with members of the Phoenix Community Choir.

When we met them last year, they were just starting out and some of the members had never sung in front of other people.

Many of them are at risk or homeless teenagers, who came through the Phoenix House shelter in Halifax.

Thanks to a collaboration with the choir at Bishop's University in Quebec - and its energetic director - the two groups came together to give several power-house performances.

Now, a year later, the Phoenix group is still performing, including this week with Symphony Nova Scotia. (Scroll below for the documentaries from last year about the choir.)
