Santa Clara Weekly: Ragazzi features “voices like no other”

Diane Andrews of the Santa Clara Weekly came to our Mar 25 concert and wrote:

The Ragazzi Boys Chorus, which debuted in Carnegie Hall in 2014, presented its spring concert, “Gloria,” at Mission Santa Clara on March 25, under the artistic direction of Joyce Keil and associate director Kent Jue. “Gloria” was performed by almost 70 Bay Area boys ages seven to 18, who sang like professionals in an astounding seven languages. “I’m pretty passionate about all-boy choirs,” said Keil, who co-founded the chorus 30 years ago in 1987 because of the dearth of choral opportunities for boys. “Getting boys and men to sing is always a problem. There is a stigma that singing is for girls, so boys get the short shrift.”
