The mission of the All-American Boys Chorus is to empower and give voice to boys from diverse backgrounds in order to build self-confidence, discipline, leadership skills, and achievement through the transformative power of music.
We began in 1970 as a small church choir in Anaheim and have grown into an internationally-touring, non-denominational chorus that fosters the creative and leadership development of over one hundred boys each year. Our choristers come from 26 cities throughout Southern California, from diverse cultural and religious backgrounds and economic status. While our programs require a small tuition payment, no child is turned away and scholarships are always provided when needed.
Our programs progress through different stages of cognitive development, transforming an individual from a beginner vocalist to a seasoned performer while instilling leadership skills through peer-to-peer mentoring. All choristers participate in afterschool and weekend music lessons with rehearsals at our campus as well as performances, recordings, national and international concert tours, and an annual week-long summer camp.
