As reported by CBS, Ragazzi is one of the Best Choirs on the Peninsula. We are very honored to be recognized as a top choir in the Bay Area, and have over 25 years of experience to share with boys who join the chorus. Ragazzi is a great place to grow up– as a boy and as a musician; we welcome 7-10 year old boys who want to try the singing life.
Over Ragazzi’s 25-year-plus history there are hundreds of local Bay Area boys who have gone through Ragazzi’s choral program. Some boys try the program for just a few years, but the majority truly grow up in Ragazzi, singing, learning, and performing from early elementary through high school.
Ragazzi holds auditions three times a year: May, summer and January. Every January, boys from 7–10 can test-drive the chorus experience at our free half-day SingFest minicamp. Low-key, no-obligation auditions are integrated into SingFest. No previous singing experience isneeded. Boys offered Ragazzi membership after SingFest start rehearsing in January; those who audition May–September start rehearsing in September.
Beginning groups meet once a week for choral singing and theory instruction. Ragazzi offers a complete music education that progresses through a proven, award-winning performance-based educational program. Ragazzi performs its own concert series, sings the National Anthem at a spring SF Giants game, tours domestically and internationally, and collaborates with other prestigious Bay Area arts organizations.
