The Phoenix Symphony Association appointed Dr. Thomas Bookhout as its interim chorus master. Bookhout’s appointment is for the 2012/13 season.

In addition to the Phoenix Symphony Chorus, Bookhout is the director of performing arts at Scottsdale Christian Academy and the sanctuary choir director of Camelback Bible Church, which performed a featured concert this summer at the Arizona conference of the American Choral Directors Association and toured Poland in 2010. He is on the executive board of the AZ American Choral Directors Association and is a member of numerous professional organizations.

Before moving to Phoenix nine years ago, Bookhout served as music director or the Taghkanic Chorale, director of choral activities at the University of Charleston, W.Va., director of the women’s chorus and assistant conductor of the concert choir for the Arizona State University, director of music at the Stony Brook School in Long Island, N.Y., and headmaster of a private school in upstate New York.
