Print Friendly Page 
The Atlanta Boy Choir Founded in 1957 by Fletcher Wolfe, the Atlanta Boy Choir has established its reputation in the United States and Europe as one of the world's finest boy choirs. David R. White served as Artistic Director and Conductor from 2001-2009. Upon his termination from the choir in 2009, Fletcher Wolfe came out of retirement to serve as the choir's interim director.

The Atlanta Boy Choir continues in its dedication to performing the great choral masterworks and providing a professional atmosphere focused on the educational and cultural development of each choir member.

The Atlanta Boy Choir has performed in many of the world's great cathedrals and concert halls. Over five thousand boys representing various economic, ethnic, and religious backgrounds have gained cultural and educational enrichment by preparing and presenting great music to audiences across North America and Europe. The choir has appeared before presidents, popes, foreign dignitaries, crowned heads of state, and U.S. soldiers, and has served both Atlanta and the United State as a cultural ambassador throughout Europe, Russia, Canada, and Mexico.

The choir's diversity of members is equally matched by its broad repertoire ranging from the early liturgical composers such as Palestrina and Monteverdi to contemporary masterworks by Britten and Penderecki. The Atlanta Boy Choir won a Grammy Award in 1989 for its performance of Britten's War Requiem with the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra and the late Robert Shaw. The choir has also commissioned numerous original works, and has been featured on television, radio, and in solos and backups on recordings.
