The British Columbia Boys Choir is a four-part secular boys choir, one of the few in North America. Over its 45 year history the Choir has trained over 800 members who have represented Canada on 30 international tours, performing a demanding repertoire spanning centuries, from Gregorian chant to contemporary works. Programmes frequently include sacred and secular works, selections from musicals and opera, folk songs from around the world, and an assortment of Canadian works; many specifically composed for the Choir. Members reside in the Greater Vancouver region and range in age from 7-24. In addition to frequent radio and television appearances, the Choir has made over 20 recordings and a one-hour documentary film “Summer Song” profiling the Choir's 10th tour to The Netherlands and has been viewed on television around the world. The Choir currently has four CDs on the market: Home, Places, Symmetry, Spirit and If my voice had wings.
