In Celebration of the Human Voice - The Essential Musical Instrument
We are extremely proud to begin the 23rd season of the Memphis Boychoir with 21 boys between the ages of 6 and 11. This season promises to be both challenging and rewarding. We have recently been invited to sing Evensong at the National Cathedral in Washington D.C. This will be a life-changing opportunity for the boys and adults in our program. Performing and interacting with institutions like the National Cathedral promotes a great sense of growth and development in the Memphis Boychoir. We are focused not only on the continuing musical growth of the boys, but also the process of them developing into the next great leaders in the city of Memphis. We continue to search and recruit boys who love to sing as well as families that appreciate the life-long skill of music making that their children are exposed to.
The tradition of boys singing and leading the worship experience has been a part of the church for hundreds of years. We are thrilled to be immersed in this tradition and performing this great repertoire.

Review: Founded in 1988 and 89, Memphis' Boychoir and Chamber Choir have recorded a number of CDs that have earned them international acclaim. 'Dancing Day' is a Christmas CD, about half accompanied by strings, drum, tambourine, flute and brass. Familiar tunes like John Rutter's 'Shepherd's Pipe Carol,' Britten's 'A Shepherd's Carol,' Praetorius' 'Psallite Unigenito,' 'While Shepherds Watched Their Flocks By Night,' and the traditional French carol 'Ding Dong! Merrily On High!'; and lesser known ones like Mathias' 'Sir Christemas,' Belcher's 'Lutebook Lullabye,' and Waters' 'I Sing of a Maiden' create an impressive mix. This is a generous, beautifully performed Christmas CD!
