In Celebration of the Human Voice - The Essential Musical Instrument
The All-American Boys Chorus . . . happy youngsters from more than thirty cities in Southern California.
Fifty concert tours to Europe, Asia, Australia, Canada and throughout the USA make The All-American Boys Chorus one of the most widely traveled boy's choirs in the world.
More than one million people have been included in the boys' live audiences-in addition to the many millions who have seen and heard them on television and radio. The boys have performed before a Pope and dignitaries of many ranks. They've been made honorary citizens of a Canadian provincial capital and been commended by its mayor for their kindness to that city's handicapped children. The boys have performed with glittering celebrities, among them John Williams, Josh Groban, Bob Hope, Victor Borge, Steve Allen, Della Reese, Melissa Manchester, and John Schneider.
Such adventures speak for themselves, but a boy's life in the AABC's acclaimed program also furnishes him with unparalleled training in self-discipline, a spirit of responsibility, unselfish cooperation, and personal poise, coupled with the taste of successes-all of these producing not merely a professionally trained boy singer, but also a leader who understands the real work that is the road to accomplishment.

Review: "A Little Christmas Magic" is just yuletide carols being sung by a choir, but not just any choir!

The 9 to 15-year-old boys add their youthful vitality and energy to marvelous arrangements and understated orchestral accompaniment to produce a full, beautiful, yes indeed - magical sound! 10 standards, from "We Need A Little Christmas" medley to "O Holy Night." Orchestrally accompanied

Review: One of the most widely-traveled choirs in the world, the Costa Mesa, CA-based AABC has appeared with such stars as Tony Bennett, Paul Anka, Steve Allen and Victor Borge, and in tv commercials for Mazda, TWA and KFC. This is a feel-good collection of 11 songs, but actually much more because five of them are medleys. "Salute To America's Colleges," for instance, has the fight songs for Ohio State, Notre Dame, Michigan, Wisconsin and USC; and "Marches of John Phillip Sousa" includes four of Sousa's classics. Orchestrally accompanied.
