To enhance and deepen every boy’s creative expression, community engagement, and cultural appreciation through the vocal arts.
To create an inclusive and welcoming environment for boys to develop their individual potential and become outstanding artists and leaders.
We value premier musical education and performance to support every boy’s contribution to exquisite artistry.
We value every boy’s individual journey on their path of self-discovery as they cultivate confidence, discipline, and a spirit of service.
We value a diverse, inclusive, and welcoming organization that promotes awareness, increases understanding, and builds trust throughout our Boychoir family and the Greater Cincinnati community.
We value broadening boys’ horizons and experiences through a robust cultural curriculum and unique travel opportunities.
We care about the holistic development of boys and young men in an environment that is welcoming, safe, and allows growth through artistic expression.
Because when everyone has a voice at the table, we learn from each other, we develop empathy and understanding, we learn to support one another, and we become stronger as an organization and a community.
Therefore, you should see us seeking, valuing, and growing from different perspectives as we recruit, welcome, program, perform and engage in our community.
The Cincinnati Boychoir is one of the premiere boychoirs in the United States. Located in the urban arts core of Cincinnati at the Aronoff Center for the Arts, the Boychoir reaches approximately 200 young men each year from more than 90 schools in Ohio, Kentucky, and Indiana.
Founded in 1965, the Boychoir meets the needs of each boy who enters the program with a curriculum that teaches not just musical skills but self-discipline, intellectual curiosity, empathy, and a spirit of volunteerism.
Boys from grades 3-12 attend weekly rehearsals, and commit from 6 weeks to a full academic year. Each week, all boys come together for a combined rehearsal in which older boys are empowered as big brothers to younger boys, teaching them the nuts and bolts of music and singing, as well as how to tie their bowtie and more.
We present approximately twenty annual performances in the greater Cincinnati region, and have performed concerts and completed residencies both at home and abroad.
We strive to make the Boychoir accessible to all boys, regardless of race, ethnicity, or socioeconomic need, so they all have the opportunity to experience the life changing impact of immersive arts participation.
