  The American Boychoir   [formerly Columbus Boychoir]    (est. 1937) Classical Choir of Boys 
Print Friendly Page 
The American Boychoir The American Boychoir's rich sonorities, musical sophistication, expressive power and innovative programming have established its reputation as the United States' premier concert boys' choir and one of the finest boychoirs in the world. Its members – boys in grades 5 through 8 – come from around the country to pursue a rigorous academic and musical curriculum at The American Boychoir School, the only non-sectarian boys' choir school in the country. The student body reflects the ethnic, religious and cultural diversity of the United States, and graduates are eagerly sought by the finest boarding schools or are frequently placed in advanced courses in hometown public schools.

Founded in Columbus, Ohio, in 1937 (as the Columbus Boychoir), the American Boychoir has been located in Princeton, New Jersey since 1950. Gian Carlo Menotti is said to have written Amahl and the Night Visitors which premiered in 1951 with the Columbus Boychoir sound in mind, and both Chet Allen and his understudy for the premiere, Richard Mincer, were Columbus Boychoir members. Traditionally the Boychoir would appear at the end of the telecast, filling out the remainder of the hour timeslot with a performance of carols.

The mission of The American Boychoir is to sustain and move forward with a distinctively American voice the one-thousand-year-old boychoir school tradition. The American Boychoir is committed to being the finest choir of its kind in the nation and among the finest in the world. The American Boychoir achieves this each year by recruiting and training talented choristers from across the country.

The American Boychoir - Body, Mind, Spirit, Voice
Body, Mind, Spirit, Voice ( , VHS)
Featuring The American Boychoir  
In September 2002, an extraordinary musical event took place. Two of the world's top choral directors, working with young members of The American Boychoir and the Newark Boys Chorus, made music together before an audience of choral musicians from around the world. They were attending the 14th annual National Choral Conference hosted by The American Boychoir. “Body, Mind, Spirit, Voice” shows how Dr. Anton Armstrong of St. Olaf College in Minnesota and Dr. André Thomas of Florida State University melded a group of young people into an amazing musical instrument. This is also the story of how the arts can inspire and instruct, helping young people learn the values of hard work, responsibility, and self-confidence. The documentary was directed by Emmy Award winning producer Robert E. Frye and edited by Markus Peters. Funding for Body, Mind, Spirit, Voice was made possible in part by grants from The National Endowment for the Arts, The Geraldine R. Dodge Foundation, The F.M. Kirby Foundation and The New Jersey State Council on the Arts.

The poetry written by the children during that time has been set to music by Charles Davidson in the concert "I Never Saw Another Butterfly." Fifty years later, The American Boychoir traveled to Czechoslovakia to perform the concert under the direction of James Litton. A precious few of the children who survived tell their story in the film. "The Journey of Butterfly" preserves the legacy of creativity and the human spirit which emerged under the harshest of conditions. Directed by Emmy award winner Robert E. Frye. 1995 CINE Golden Eagle Award Winner
