The Boychoir Project helps elementary vocal music teachers recruit and encourage boys to sing in choir at school by giving 3rd-4th-5th-6th grade boys a chance to be in a BoyChoir for a day. With their elementary music teachers, who recommend them for our program, as many as 75 boys will come together for a 6-hour workshop with our expert teachers and other boys who may be “surrounded by girls” in their school choirs. This one-day emersion into the BoyChoir world gives them the chance to work on their beautiful treble voices while in the presence of “boys only–no girls allowed!” At the end of the day, they perform a concert for their parents and friends.

On two days in March, our Young Voices choirs travel to area schools in Arapahoe and Douglas Counties to demonstrate the opportunities available in choral singing. In 25-minute school assemblies, our choirs entertain and inspire their audiences, while our teacher/conductors engage the school populations in singing rounds with the choir. We conclude each concert by congratulating the school’s choir members and encouraging other students to participate in their school music programs. To invite us to your school, please call us at 303-797-SING (-7464). We do not charge for this opportunity!

This popular, intensive weekend choral experience project serves 3rd – 6th graders who love singing and who are recommended by their school music teachers. Approximately 75 elementary school singers come together at the Young Voices Studios on Saturday to learn and rehearse together in preparation for an afternoon performance. The choral experience involves children who have developed a passion for singing in their school music programs and honors those who have become leaders in their school choirs. The extra challenge they experience in two days often inspires them to return to their home schools and become music leaders. WinterSong is held in Arapahoe County, but is open to elementary schools from all counties.
