Boychoir

Join us for a special concert by the American Boychoir!

The American Boychoir has long been recognized as one of the finest musical ensembles in the country. Under the leadership of Fernando Malvar-Ruiz, Litton-Lodal Music Director, the American Boychoir has dazzled audiences with its unique blend of musical sophistication, spirited presentation, and ensemble virtuosity.

Boys in fourth through eighth grades, reflecting the ethnic, religious and cultural diversity of the United States, come from across the country and around the world to pursue a rigorous musical and academic curriculum at the American Boychoir School in Princeton, New Jersey.  While keeping up with their academic demands, the boys balance schoolwork with an intense national and international touring schedule.

In addition to the almost 100 solo concerts, the 2014-2015 season includes three engagements with the Philadelphia Orchestra, a month-long performance exhibit at the Gladstone Gallery in New York City, a performance at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, four national tours and the release of a movie called “Boychoir” with Dustin Hoffman and Kathy Bates.

A freewill offering will be gathered to help cover the cost of the choir’s performance. Thank you to the ACT II Shop for its support of this concert.  All are welcome!
