New Jersey Boychoir (NJB) is in its inaugural season, channeling the boundless energy of boys into music making of the highest standards that results in the unforgettable experiences for singers and audiences alike.
Members of NJB have an array of transformative music making opportunities, including an ecumenical concert honoring children of all faiths, a Thanksgiving service, and two Holiday Concerts with the Keystone State Boychoir, along with a Yom HaShoah Service commemorating the Holocaust. They were part of an NEA-sponsored performance of The Children’s March chronicling a shining moment of the Civil Rights movement led by children, and a spectacular, not-to-be-missed performance on stage with the award-winning Broadway composer Stephen Schwartz (Godspell, Pippin, Prince of Egypt, and Wicked) at the Kimmel Center for the Performing Arts on Saturday, June 17, 2017.
