Bio

  • As a world-class boychoir, the mission of the Texas Boys Choir (TBC) is to develop personal excellence and to inspire a lifelong passion for choral artistry. For the past 72 years, the choir has been an educational and performance institution that has continued to provide any boy, regardless of socioeconomic or ethnic background, a structured environment in which to learn the fundamentals of world-class vocal performance.
  • Extensive training in both music and academics enables the choir to maintain the standard of excellence established when the choir was founded in 1946. This high level of performance has garnered TBC two GRAMMY© Awards, three George Washington Honor Medal Awards and a Bronze Award from the International Film and Television Festival.
  • Texas Boys Choir has traveled to numerous international destinations in its history including Australia, Japan, England, Mexico, Latvia and Germany. In May of 2012 the choir traveled to Argentina as the sole U.S. representative invited to the International Iguazú Festival for Youth Orchestras and Choirs. In May of 2016, the choir travelled to Germany and Austria visiting prestigious locations such as St. Stephen’s in Vienna, and St. Thomas Church in Leipzig. During their visit, the group did cultural exchanges and shared concerts with the Wiltner Boy Choir of Innsbruck, the Dresden Kreuzchor, and the Vienna Boys Choir. Most recently, in July 2017, the choir embarked on a historic month-long concert tour of China. They visited 14 cities, presented a total of 15 sold-out concerts and concluded their visit with a performance at the prestigious National Centre for the Performing Arts in Beijing.
  • For boys who possess the basic ability and the love of music, membership in the Texas Boys Choir can open doors to an exciting world—one which can make a tremendous difference in their lives and in the lives of those who hear them perform.
