St. Paul’s is pleased to present The American Boychoir in concert on Sunday, April 17, at 4 p.m. The American Boychoir has long been recognized as one of the finest musical ensembles in the country. In 2014, St. Paul’s hosted the Boychoir due to a last-minute cancellation on their Fall Tour. We are thrilled to have them back this spring!
With a 75-year history as America’s premier concert boys’ choir, they capitalize on their trademark blend of musical sophistication, spirited presentation, and ensemble virtuosity. The Boychoir performs regularly with world-class ensembles, including The New York Philharmonic, The Philadelphia Orchestra, and The Boston Symphony, and is often featured with such illustrious conductors as James Levine, Charles Dutoit, and Alan Gilbert.
Boys in fourth through eighth grades 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. One of St. Paul’s own choristers, Joe Kaffen, is attending the School this year and is a member of the touring choir, which is unusual in that first-year boys generally do not make the touring choir.
We are eager for young people to attend this concert, so please share this event at your schools and in your neighborhoods.
The concert is free and open to the public; we will ask for a freewill offering to defray related costs.
