The purpose of the Georgia Boy Choir is to achieve the highest possible standard of musical excellence, while instilling in its members a life-long appreciation of music; an abiding love of beauty; a keen sense of respect for themselves and others; and the self-discipline necessary to become effective leaders in their families, their communities and the world.
Established in 2009, the Georgia Boy Choir has quickly gained a reputation as one of the finest Choirs of its kind. Known for the transcendent beauty of their singing and powerful, nuanced musical interpretation, the Choir has garnered an impressive international fan base through its many performance videos on YouTube which have been viewed by hundreds of thousands of listeners in more than 170 countries all around the world. Operating on a five-tier music education system, the Choir serves more than 100 boys and young men from all around the metropolitan Atlanta region.
Recognizing that a musician must care for his instrument, the Georgia Boy Choir invests a great deal of time, energy, and focus on the care and development of its ”instrument” – the boys themselves. At every rehearsal, each boy is encouraged to “Be the Best Boy You Can Be.” The boys are taught the importance of hard work, self-discipline, and focus, all in an environment that is positive, encouraging, and fun. In this way, the boys are allowed to be their true selves and find expression of the greatness that lies within them.
In the summer of 2010 the Choir embarked on its first international tour, delighting thousands throughout the country of China. In 2011 they traveled to England where they were the Choir-In-Residence at both Wells Cathedral and Christ Church Cathedral in Oxford. Summer 2012 saw the boys and young men in Scandinavia where they performed in Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Finland, and Estonia. The Georgia Boy Choir made its Carnegie Hall debut in May of 2013, and returned to England in 2014 where they served as the Choir-In-Residence at St. Paul’s Cathedral in London. In the summer of 2015 the Choir made its second trip to China where they received a hero's welcome. The Georgia Boy Choir is eagerly anticipating their tour to Portugal and Spain in June 2016.
