pacific boychoir

It's the KALW On-Air Folk Festival this Saturday from 3 to 8 pm--our musical extravaganza features five hours of continuous live music by some of the Bay Area's finest talent! Hosted by JoAnn Mar, Kevin Vance, and Peter Thompson.

3:00 pm    The Pacific Boychoir is led by director and founder Kevin Fox.  The Pacific Boychoir Academy is the only United States boychoir school outside of the East Coast.  The choir's repertoire includes classical, African freedom songs, Afro-American spirituals, and world music.

Today, we're featuring a rehearsal by the Pacific Boychoir. Their motto is: “Bay Area based, World Renowned.” Over 160 boys participate in seven choirs within this 15-year-old organization. Their next performance will be Bach’s “Magnificat,” when they join the Oakland-East Bay Symphony for their final performance of the season. It takes place at Oakland’s Paramount Theater on Friday May 3rd. There’s a pre-concert talk at 7pm, with the main program starting at 8pm.
