“This is a great opportunity to involve the Cincinnati community,” said Ashley Majher with Red Light Management, the tour promoter. “It gives the boys a chance to experience the thrill of performing in front of a large audience with such a high-level touring act. We feel that it is something the boys and their parents will always remember.”
The Cincinnati Boychoir, under the artistic direction of Christopher Eanes, is one of the premiere professional boychoirs in the United States. A resident company of the Aronoff Center for the Arts, the Boychoir reaches approximately 200 young men each year from more than 90 schools in Ohio, Kentucky, and Indiana. Since 1965, the Cincinnati Boychoir has been dedicated to the musical, intellectual, and emotional development of these young men and has served as one of the foremost music education and performance organizations in the region; boys attend weekly rehearsals, retreats, music theory classes, and the annual SongFest Summer Music Camp for Boys at Xavier University. The Boychoir celebrated its 50th Anniversary in 2015.
“For the boys to have the opportunity to back up a professional touring group is fantastic,” said Eanes. “It is just one of the many opportunities that have come about because of our new and ongoing relationship with the Aronoff.”
