The internationally award-winning Florida’s Singing Sons Boychoir was founded in Fort Lauderdale in 1975. The choir consists of boys, ages eight through fourteen, selected from the South Florida community by audition. Those selected are then rigorously prepared through a multi-level music education program for participation in one of the three choirs, the Training Choir, the Residence Choir, and the Concert Choir.
The Boychoir performs a wide variety of choral literature, from Gregorian Chant to Broadway favorites. Concerts typically include secular and sacred choral classics as well as selections from opera, operetta, folk music, and musical theater. Members of the choir have appeared with the Florida Philharmonic Orchestra, the New World Symphony, the Sinfonia Virtuosi of Florida, the Gold Coast Opera, the Imperial Symphony and with stage luminaries Liza Minnelli, Judy Collins, Lee Greenwood, and the late Audrey Hepburn and Bob Hope.
Other choral activities by the Boychoir include international and national concert tours, arts in education concerts for the Broward County public schools through the SEAS Program (Student Enrichment in the Arts and Sciences), community outreach concerts, performances for local and national conventions, commercials for radio and television, radio broadcasts on WTMI, and television broadcasts on WPBT, South Florida’s Public television station.
