Do you know a boy who loves to sing?

2017 KSBoychoir Festival!

What: A one-day festival for boys in grades 4-7 with unchanged voices who love to sing, who have found their singing voices and who have some choral experience.

When: Saturday, January 28, 2017, from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm (3:00 pm concert). A second festival will be held Wednesday, May 24, 2017.

Where: First Presbyterian Church in Germantown (KSB rehearsal home) 35 W. Chelten Avenue, Philadelphia, PA 19144

Who: Hosted by the Keystone State Boychoir (KSB) and led by its directors, Mr. Joseph Fitzmartin and Mr. Steven Fisher

Why: The boys will spend the day singing great music with other boys. When a boy sings with a mass choir of two hundred boys, it is empowering beyond words. Such an experience builds his esteem as a male singer and will motivate him to keep singing in his current choirs and in choirs throughout his life. The KSBoychoir Festival will culminate with a concert that will feature the Festival Choir and the world-renowned Keystone State Boychoir. Families and friends are welcome to attend.

Who: Hosted by the Pennsylvania Girlchoir (PG) and led by Festival Conductors Mr. Vincent Metallo and Dr. Elizabeth Parker.

Why: The girls will spend the day singing great music with other girls. When a girl sings with a mass choir of one hundred girls, it is empowering beyond words. Such an experience builds her esteem as a female singer and will motivate her to keep singing in her current choirs and in choirs throughout her life. The GETMusic! Festival will culminate with a concert that will feature the Festival Choir and the world-renowned Pennsylvania Girlchoir. Families and friends are welcome to attend.

Introducing…”Men On A MISSION!”

Wednesday, October 19, 2016 : KSBlog

Whosoever Gospel MissionTonight we launched our “Song IS Home” Concert Series. The first performance of the series was held at the Whosoever Gospel Mission in Germantown, just two blocks from First Presbyterian Church in Germantown (FPCG) – KSB’s rehearsal home. Well over a hundred years old, it turns out that the Mission was founded in the late 1800’s by a member of FPCG.

Our KSB Grads brought a lot of joy to some admirable men who are striving to better their lives.

The purpose for the “Song IS Home” Concert Series is four fold.

  1. To help our young singers realize that there are many different kinds of places people call home.
  2. To remember that home is wherever one sings a song. No matter where we are in the world or in our lives, when we have a song on our lips, we are home in a way. This is the great gift of song.
  3. To bring the joy of song to people who might not always have the opportunity to enjoy choral music and whose spirit very well may need lifting through music.
  4.  To bring joy to our young singers by giving them the opportunity to sing with whom they might not ordinarily get the chance and, by doing so, expand their view of the world around them.

And so, we have invited the men of Whosoever Gospel Mission to join with our Grads to form a new ensemble …”Men On A MISSION!” We will rehearse each Wednesday at the Mission, with the goal of making our debut at the Germantown Friends School a cappella fest this coming February.

Stay tuned (get it?) for “Men on a MISSION!
