This is the question we will be asking this year as we look at all of the different ways that one can live an
extraordinary life. From the extraordinary ways in which friends are made through shared experiences, to
the extraordinary lives of musicians and composers, we aim to bring to life the stories and the characters
that have created amazing works of art, overcome serious obstacles, or faced oppression.
We will conclude our season with a celebration of the 100th birthday of Nelson Mandela with music and
storytelling from the incredibly rich culture of South Africa. Just a month after that, our Ambassadors will
travel to collaborate and perform in Cape Town and Johannesburg as part of the Boychoir’s Cultural
Curriculum program. For further information on these shows and to also grab tickets to attend, please
visit our 2017-2018 season page.
All of our choirs, however, will get to experience the rich musical culture of South Africa. With workshops
and concerts right here in Cincinnati, we will be diving into the rich choral tradition of one of the world’s
most amazing countries.
On behalf of the 300 members of the Cincinnati Boychoir and their families, I cordially invite you to take a
journey with us; whether it’s through centuries-old Italian baroque music, or South African protest songs
written just a few decades ago, we hope to help you think about YOUR extraordinary, whatever that may
