Keystone State Boychoir (KSB) is one of the finest programs of its kind in the world, channeling the boundless energy of 200 boys, ages 8 to 18, into unforgettable music making. KSB prides itself in the diversity of its membership, welcoming boys from all walks of life, as well as the diversity of its repertoire, which includes world music from every corner of the globe.
The Boychoir has sung with Philadelphia’s most distinguished ensembles, including the Philadelphia Orchestra and Opera Philadelphia, serving as its official boychoir. KSB has appeared in the region’s most prominent venues including the Kimmel Center, the Mann Music Center, the Academy of Music, America’s oldest opera house, and Carnegie Hall. In June of 2012, KSB made its Broadway debut with Tony Award winner Brian Stokes Mitchell. This June, KSB will host An Evening With Stephen Schwartz with the composer at the piano. Throughout its history, the boys have had the honor of singing for three presidents, two peace prize winners, and one pope.
