The Maryland State Boychoir – 2024 Hawaii Tour

Thursday, July 11th, 2024 at 6:00 pm7:30 pm

(A free event.  Donations accepted to support the Boy Choir’s Tour Fund.)

The Maryland State Boychoir was founded in 1987 with fourteen boys and a vision: to create an organization that would offer talented boys from diverse backgrounds a foundation in choral singing and a discipline that develops the mind, builds character, and sustains the spirit. Over the past 36 years, the choir has built and enjoyed a strong reputation throughout the state and the nation. The Maryland State Boychoir performs over 100 times each season and on national and international tours that have taken them to over forty states and fifteen countries. 


The MSB performs a wide body of choral literature that ranges from Gregorian chant to contemporary choral music. Deeply rooted in the ancient Boychoir tradition, the MSB holds concerts and events each year reflecting this tradition including the Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols, Choral Evensong, Compline, and concerts featuring masterworks composers who themselves were once choirboys. Its annual performance series features the Annual African American Celebration Concert and the Baltimore Boychoir Festival.


The Maryland State Boychoir frequently collaborates with other ensembles and has participated in performances of Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony, Mahler’s Third Symphony, The Nutcracker by Pyotor Ilyich Tchaikovsky, Tosca by Giacomo Puccini, Carmina Burana by Carl Orff, Hodie by Ralph Vaughan Williams, Fauré’s Requiem, Symphony No. 3 “Kaddish” by Leonard Bernstein, The Fellowship of the Ring by Howard Shore, and The Flying Dutchman by Richard Wagner.


The Maryland State Boychoir has self-produced seven recordings and appears on the Albany Label in a performance of Andrew Earle Simpson’s A Crown of Stars, as well as a recording on the Naxos label of Symphony No. 3 “Kaddish” by Leonard Bernstein with the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra under the direction of Maestra Marin Alsop. The MSB has been an invited choir for regional and national ACDA, NAfME, and American Guild of Organists conferences. The Maryland State Boychoir’s recordings have been featured on classical radio stations throughout the country.


The Maryland State Boychoir proudly continues the great Boychoir tradition as Maryland’s official “Goodwill Ambassadors,” a title bestowed upon them by the late governor of Maryland, William Donald Schaefer.
