All-City Boychoir Festival

Thanks to a partnership with the Cincinnati Arts Association, the Cincinnati Boychoir welcomes all boys and music teachers from all around the greater Cincinnati area for its 9th annual All-City Boychoir Festival at the Aronoff Center for the Arts on Saturday, February 8th.


¡Canten Señores! is a beloved carnavalito, a folk song and dance style from Bolivia and Argentina, originally sung during Carnival. The translation of the title is Sing, Sirs! and provides an apt backdrop for a day of music-making with boys from all over the city.
