Dear Friend,

Trumpets! Drums! Voices! Cake!

Eanes_headshotThis year, the Cincinnati Boychoir celebrates its fiftieth anniversary, and you are invited to the party! We have a season planned that looks both backward at the tradition of Boychoir singing with Handel’s Messiah, Bernstein’s Chichester Psalms, and Cincinnati Boychoir favorites, and forward to our next fifty years, with a newly commissioned work of thrilling adventure and discovery from composer Dominick DiOrio.

But that’s just the beginning: in addition to the many concerts we will present, this year also marks the beginning of a new era at the Boychoir as we become the newest Resident Company at the Aronoff Center for the Arts in Downtown Cincinnati. We will continue to perform in communities all around the city, but our rehearsal and performance home now will be conveniently located right downtown at the corner of Walnut and Seventh Streets. We couldn’t be more thrilled to be in the company of so many wonderful performing arts organizations, and we look forward to collaborations with each and every one.

You will notice, as well, a new look to the Boychoir. While we will never forget the history and tradition behind this incredible organization, it is time to breathe new life into our identity. We hope you like it!

Finally, we hope to reconnect with as many of our 4,000+ alumni that are out there – somewhere. All alumni are invited back to sing with the group for our Season 50 Anniversary Weekend in April – but first we need to find them! If you know a former Boychoir member who has lost touch with us, encourage him to visit our website to reconnect. Thank you for your help!

On behalf of the board, staff, and more than two hundred boys that will sing as a part of the Boychoir this year, I sincerely hope you will join us for one, two, or all of our concerts this year!

Sincerely,

Christopher Eanes
Artistic Director
