The American Boychoir is regarded as the United States’ premier concert boys’ choir. Under the leadership of Fernando Malvar-Ruiz, the Litton-Lodal Music Director, The American Boychoir continues to dazzle audiences with its unique blend of musical sophistication, effervescent spirit, and ensemble virtuosity. Boys in grades four through eight, 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 school. The American Boychoir School, the only non-sectarian boys’ choir school in the nation, was founded in Columbus, Ohio, in 1937, and has been located in Princeton, New Jersey, since 1950.
Maintaining an active national and international touring schedule, the Boychoir performs with world-class ensembles, including the Boston Symphony Orchestra, the Philadelphia Orchestra, and the New York Philharmonic. The Boychoir regularly appears, as featured artists, with James Levine at the Tanglewood Music Festival and has performed with the internationally renowned soprano Jessye Norman, prominent jazz musician Wynton Marsalis, pop diva Beyoncé, and at Carnegie Hall with Sir Paul McCartney.
Often called upon for boy soloists, members of The American Boychoir have performed with the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra, the Berkshire Music Festival, and the Virginia Symphony Orchestra.
The American Boychoir has been extensively recorded on its own label, Albemarle Records, and broadcast on radio and television, with over forty-five commercial recordings.
The programs offered by The American Boychoir School are made possible, in part, through a grant by the New Jersey State Council on the Arts/Department of State, a partner agency of the National Endowment for the Arts. Additional funding has been provided by the New Jersey Cultural Trust.
