The Boys’ Choir is a dedicated group of young men who love to sing! Created in 2006 in an effort to provide an outlet for the musical talent and excitement in grades three through six, the Boys’ Choir has performed at The White House for President George W. Bush, for televised masses from the crypt of the National Shrine, and for other distinguished requests. Each year they perform at the Fall Choral Concert, the Heights Christmas Concert, the Spring Choral Concert, the Maryland Day gala and some all-school masses for clan days and for other outside performances as they arise.

Skills & Benefits
Students learn to match pitch, to maintain a tonal center and to sing alone and with others. They are introduced to repertoire ranging from Gregorian Chant, Polyphony, French, Italian and American folk song, spirituals, chorales and other SS, SSA and SATB music. Students learn to conquer their fear of public performance, to be part of a group, and serve as ambassadors to the school in the public sphere.
