Project Description

The San Francisco Boys Chorus (SFBC), founded in 1948, is one of the oldest nonprofit choral arts organizations in the country and the largest chorus for boys in the western United States. SFBC’s mission is “to provide music education, vocal training, and performance experiences at the highest artistic level to Bay Area boys from all cultural, ethnic, and economic backgrounds.”

The Chorus was originally established to train boy singers for the San Francisco Opera. For more than 70 years, SFBC choristers have continually served as soloists and chorus members for the Opera’s annual productions. Today, the SFBC is a Grammy Award-winning nonprofit arts provider, providing training and performance opportunities to 200+ school-age children and youth from diverse backgrounds each year. SFBC choristers participate in more than 40 local and regional performances a year. The Concert Chorus tours both nationally and internationally and has performed for U.S. presidents and foreign dignitaries.
