Levels 1 and 2

In 2018 we introduced two new programs, Passport to Music Class and Passport to Singing Class, for young singers who would like to sing with the Boychoir without the pressure of an audition or mainstage concert. Each program runs for 6 weeks, one evening a week, and includes singing, drumming, games, stories, and themes of travel. Learn more about these classes here.
