Event Description

The internationally known Maryland State Boychoir (MSB) is set to perform at the All Saints Episcopal Church in Kapaa on July 11th, from 6 to 7:30 p.m. This is part of the choir’s summer tour of Hawaii and the only performance on Kauai. This event is free of charge with donations going to the MSB Tour fund.

The Maryland State Boychoir 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. Today the choir has 130 participants.

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.
