Learn about our exciting season

Our 2020-21 season features 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 program for this season includes:
• 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)
• Singing together remotely in real time with Ragazzi Virtual Studio.

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.

"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."
