This year, the Cincinnati Boychoir invites you to hear the magnificent, heartbreaking, and victorious stories of those who have come from afar to make their lives here in America. With a special focus on the music and culture of the Hispanic world, we’ll take you on a journey that will help us all answer the question: where do I come from?
Season support is provided by ArtsWave, The Louise Dieterle Nippert Musical Arts Fund, and the Ohio Arts Council. Additional generous support is provided by The William O. Purdy, Jr. Foundation Fund of the Greater Cincinnati Foundation.

This family-friendly one-hour concert is quickly becoming a Downtown Cincinnati tradition.
(Note: Due to unforeseen circumstances, Laura Gentry will replace Dhani Jones as our narrator, who developed a late-hour scheduling conflict.)
