All-City Boychoir Festival comes to Aronoff Center

All-City Boychoir Festival comes to Aronoff Center
with free singing opportunity for more than 300 boys

MISC_Cincinnati Boychoir logSummary: The All-City Boychoir Festival is a day-long music-making experience for any boy from the 1st through 12th grades. In partnership with the Cincinnati Arts Association, the festival will be offered free of charge to any boy who wishes to participate, and held in the Procter & Gamble Hall at the Aronoff Center.

  • Who: any boy from 1st through 12th grade
  • When: Saturday, November 7, 1:00 pm – 6:00 PM
  • Where Aronoff Center for the Arts – Procter & Gamble Hall
  • How Much: Free of charge to all
  • Presented by: The Cincinnati Boychoir

In 2012, the Cincinnati Boychoir began to offer a one-day singing opportunity to any boy from the city who wished to participate. The Cincinnati Boychoir was founded as a part of the Cincinnati Public Schools, and the All-City Boychoir Festival was intended, specifically, as a way of providing a boychoir experience for boys on a short-term basis. The event is an exciting and fun way to experience music for boys from all backgrounds.

In 2013 and 2014, the Festival was held at Memorial Hall, but the facility became too small to hold the rapidly growing event.

Now the newest resident company at the Aronoff Center, the Cincinnati Boychoir has partnered with the Cincinnati Arts Association to be able to offer the Festival not just free of charge, but in the Aronoff Center’s spectacular Procter & Gamble Hall. Because of this partnership, the Boychoir is now able to invite to the Festival boys through grade 12. This year there will be an added emphasis on training for boys whose voices are changed or changing.

Concurrent with the Festival for the boys and young men will be a continuing education session for school teachers; teachers can earn .3 CEUs for their participation.

No advance preparation is required of the boys. Each boy will receive a free t-shirt and Graeter’s cookies during the workshop. The final concert, at 5:00 pm, is free and open to the public. The concert will feature music from around the world, and Baoku Moses on drums. Graeter’s Ice Cream is an in-kind sponsor of the event.

The Cincinnati Boychoir is one of the premiere professional boychoirs in the United States. Located in the urban arts core of Cincinnati at 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. Each year, the Cincinnati Boychoir presents approximately thirty annual performances in the Greater Cincinnati region, and has performed concerts and completed residencies both at home and abroad; most recently, the Boychoir undertook three three-day residencies with boychoirs in England (June 2013), a week-long residency at the Hotchkiss School in northwest Connecticut (June 2014), and a two-week tour of Australia in 2015.

The twenty-member choir will perform three songs with The Tenors during the second half of the evening’s program, including one of The Tenors’ original songs and the most famous aria of all time, Nessun Dorma.

“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.

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.”

The Tenors, with multiple #1 Billboard Classical Crossover albums under its belt, “have talent to burn” and “killer singing voices” ravesThe Toronto Star and “pitch perfect harmonies” says Examiner.com. The music of Clifton Murray, Victor Micallef, Remigio Pereira, andFraser Walters is rich and soulful, spanning powerful anthems, classic covers, and original songs penned/co-penned by The Tenorsthemselves.

Over the years, The Tenors’ musical diversity has become one of their primary strengths, and Under One Sky’s material covers the full range of tunes that have made the group one of the most popular livedraws across the globe. In addition to the original songs, Under One Sky includes the foursome’s reinventions of contemporary classicslike “Lean on Me,”“You Are So Beautiful,” and Queen’s “Who Wants To Live Forever”;  a swoon-worthy duet featuring Walters’ wife, Kelly Levesque; as well as their glorious interpretations of classical pieces “Granada,” “Besame Mucho,” and “Agnus Dei.”
