For the second time in as many years, the Cincinnati Boychoir and Memorial Hall will play host to boys from all over Cincinnati for a day of singing, games, and making friends. Led by Cincinnati Boychoir Director of Education & Outreach KellyAnn Nelson and Boychoir Artistic Director Christopher Eanes, the boys will have the opportunity to experience singing in a choir in a fun, active, and boy-centered environment. Year-round members of the Cincinnati Boychoir will serve as big brothers to those who attend the festival.
During the festival, a free workshop will be held for music teachers featuring African drumming specialist Baoku Moses who will teach basic percussion technique and classroom ideas. Additional workshops will be given on the boy’s voice and music theory for the young singers.
In 1965, the Cincinnati Boychoir was founded as the All-City Boychoir, selecting only three boys from each of the Cincinnati Public Schools; the current festival reflects the Boychoir’s roots in the public schools, drawing young men from all over the region. Included in the Festival will be boys from the three Cincinnati Sings! programs, free after-school choral programs run by the Boychoir at Evanston Academy, Bond Hill Academy, and the Academy of World Languages.
The festival begins at 8:30 am, and finishes with a final concert presentation (free and open to the public) at 1:00 pm.
