Princeton Boychoir Now Scheduling Auditions for Winter 2020 Term

Princeton Boychoir (PBC) is currently conducting auditions for the Winter 2020 term. Any 3rd through 12th grade boy who likes to sing is warmly welcomed.

The Winter 2020 term promises to be an exciting one, with many concert and performance opportunities, including the Carnegie Hall debut of Princeton Boychoir in June 2020.

In addition to these performance opportunities, PBC offers a first-class music education to the choristers who participate in all three of their ensembles. Choristers who have trained with PBC, and its sister program Princeton Girlchoir, are regularly accepted into prestigious University music programs across the country. While most of our alums go on to successful careers outside of music, all benefit from the discipline, community, and empowerment that have been the hallmark of the organization for 31 years.

A strong desire to learn, a musical ear, and an eagerness to share music with others are key to a successful audition. Despite the many musical opportunities PBC offers during the year, the auditions remain low-key and enjoyable and no music needs to be prepared in advance. Boys will be asked to sing "Row, Row, Row Your Boat," along with some exercises that demonstrate their vocal range, and to complete a few musical challenges to help our music directors understand their current level of musical ability.

Auditions for new choristers are scheduled throughout January at our facility in Princeton Junction. To schedule your audition, please contact the Westrick Music Academy office (home of Princeton Boychoir and Princeton Girlchoir) at 609-688-1888 or Auditions@PrincetonBoychoir.org. You can also visit their website at www.PrincetonBoychoir.org

Princeton Boychoir develops boys into confident young men of character through inspired training in singing, music education, and leadership, who share their musical excellence within the community and beyond. Launched in Fall 2017, PBC has become the premier extracurricular vocal program for boys in the region. The choir is composed of boys from third through twelfth grade, who are placed by audition in one of our three ensembles: Apprentice Choir, Treble Choir, and the Young Men's Ensemble. Singers are placed by ability, matching each boy with the choir that best suits his vocal, artistic, and musicianship level. In addition to striving for musical excellence, choristers in Princeton Boychoir grow in maturity, self-discipline, focus, and leadership.

Although the Boychoir grew from its sister organization, Princeton Girlchoir, and the two choirs share many traits, there is a unique spirit when "boys' night" starts every Thursday. Led by Fred Meads, each chorister in Princeton Boychoir strives to be an outstanding musician while developing a sense of poise and self-confidence through education and performance, challenging him to tap into the best part of who he is and what he can accomplish. Now in its third season, the Boychoir regularly appears on concert stages throughout the Princeton area and beyond. They have appeared at the Baltimore Boychoir Festival, the International Boy's and Men's Choral Festival in Arizona, and will make their Carnegie Hall debut in June 2020. Princeton Boychoir is part of Westrick Music Academy, home to choirs, music classes and summer camps for musicians from Kindergarten through High School.
