Ragazzi is looking for boys who love to sing!

Young Ragazzi choristers in performance

He’s easy to recognize: the boy who sang The Wheels on the Bus over and over as he drove his dump truck in the sandbox at preschool … the boy who sings on his scooter, or in the bathtub. These boys may be quiet or boisterous, but their eyes light up when they hear or make music.

Maybe you are a parent who loves music and wants to share that love with your son. Or maybe you’ve read the research about the incredible social, academic and emotional benefits attributed to choral music learning.

Named one of the “Best Choirs On The Peninsula” by CBS News

Ragazzi offers a complete musical education. The program is designed to take boys as young as seven from their first taste of choral singing through a full course of choral/vocal instruction. Boys from all walks of life enjoy the opportunity to participate in this unparalleled learning experience.

  • Find new friendships
  • Improve social skills and self-esteem, and
  • Develop an appreciation of music that will last a lifetime!

Auditions

become a Ragazzi Chorister

No previous singing experience is required to audition. Auditions are group-based, and led by an instructor who plays musical call-and-response games with the boys. We know this is likely a boy’s first audition experience and keep the experience short, simple and fun. There is no need to prepare a musical selection. Auditions are held three times a year: in summer (through mid-September), January, and May. Auditions are by appointment, usually after school during the work week. Auditions are also held during our January SingFest mini-camp. Boys offered a place in the choral program are placed in an entry–level or intermediate–level chorus, depending upon their age and musical level. Auditions are for boys ages 7-10 who are interested in our main program.  Book an audition.

My audition was fun. At first I was nervous, but everyone was really nice.

Music and Movement

Is your boy too young to manage a two-hour rehearsal, but loves to sing? The perfect beginning at Ragazzi harnesses his musical energy in our Music and Movement class. He’ll have lots of fun, get a taste of choral singing, and get started on some of the foundations of music. The class is designed for boys ages 5-7.  Learn More

SingFest

 Learn More

At SingFest boys learn a piece of music and perform it for their parents. They get a real sense of what it’s like to rehearse and sing in a chorus. Held every January, this fun half-day mini-camp is a great introduction to Ragazzi faculty and teaching methods. Plus, it’s packed with fun musical activities. Small-group auditions are integrated into the day during informal breakout sessions. Boys who are offered a place in the choral program are placed in an entry–level or intermediate–level chorus, depending upon their age and musical level.  SingFest is designed for boys ages 7-10.
