Our exciting plans for Fall 2020

We will begin this season on Sep 9 with remote instruction, featuring enhanced technologies and platforms that will meet our choristers’ musical and developmental needs. We’ll phase in physical rehearsals when it is safe to do so.

Our plans for this season include:
• Ample class time and instructor attention
• Enhanced learning goals (including individual singing, small-group projects, theory, music history, and community-building)
• Advanced technology (including online recording and music notation apps)
• The opportunity to test a cutting-edge remote rehearsal technology

As AD/ED Kent Jue says, the new platforms "allow me to focus on creating engaging lessons and beautiful music. The boys will have a rich and rewarding experience. That's a good feeling as a teacher.” Learn more.

Remote auditions

"Friday’s performance was... alluring...vigorous but soft-grained...In the tender middle movement, [the Ragazzi Boys Chorus] boy soprano ... floated a solo line as pure and clear as a millstream."
