25th Anniversary Celebration The Memphis Boychoir & Memphis Chamber Choir
Saint John's Episcopal Church
Reception to follow in the Parish Life Center
The Memphis Boychoir is currently in its 25th year of educating elementary school aged boys in the mid-South. This year also marks the 2nd season of the Memphis Girlchoir. Both of these ensembles participated alongside the Memphis Chamber Choir and world renowned soprano Kallen Esperian in a television Christmas Special titled "A Memphis Boychoir Christmas with Kallen Esperian." WKNO television produced the program and it aired multiple times over the holidays. This was a fabulous experience for everyone involved and one that the children in particular will be able to recall for many years to come.
We are focused not only on the continuing musical growth of the children involved in this program, but also the process of them developing into the next great leaders in the city of Memphis. We continue to search and recruit elementary school aged children who love to sing as well as families that appreciate the life-long skill of music making that their children are exposed to.
The spring semester of 2013 promises to be exciting with many recitals and services scheduled to be performed in the greater Memphis area. April 2013 will see the Memphis Girlchoir perform in Sewanee, TN at the University of the South and in July the Memphis Boychoir will be performing at the National Cathedral in Washington DC with the Memphis Chamber Choir.
I invite you to search our website and to experience the sound of centuries at one of our 2011/12 programs.
