We get it. You're the type who only steps into a church on major holidays. However, the Phoenix Chorale has given us another good reason to spend some time in the pews with its "Darkness & Light" performance at Brophy Chapel. The circa 1928 spot showcases plenty of Spanish architectural influences mixed with magnificent stained glass windows straight out of Dublin, Ireland. In other words, its the perfect venue for a candle-lit Phoenix Chorale performance of selections from Shawn Crouch, Morten Lauridsen, James MacMillan, Carlos Surinach, Sir John Tavener, Eric Whitacre, and the world premiere of Dark Night of the Soul by the Chorales composer-in-residence Oja Gjeilo.

Keep Phoenix New Times Free... Since we started Phoenix New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Phoenix, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Phoenix with no paywalls.
