The boys’ choir season follows the school year, with rehearsals, concerts, and events throughout the season. Here is the usual plan each year.
Fall registration night – early September
Open to all boys 5-12, required for all current choir boys
Sign up to be part of this incredible organization! Younger boys are usually placed in Music Magic. Older boys are usually placed in Cadet Choir. Based on ability, older boys may be invited to join the Viking Choir.
Christmas concerts – December
The Viking Choir gets invited to sing at events and church services all around the state, usually on the weekends leading up to our main concert. All of the choirs, including choir alumni and dads, participate in our main Christmas concert to wrap up the first half of the choir season.
Photo shoot – late January
We take individual and group photos of all the boys every year for our commemorative booklet and other promotional materials.
School performances – April/May
We try to visit a few schools each spring to introduce our choir to students and teachers in the area and recruit new boys for our choir.
Spring concert – May
The boys in the Music Magic, Cadet Choir, Viking Choir, and Kantorei show off what they’ve been learning all year. This is also the last concert before the big summer tour.
Summer tour – June
Viking Choir and Kantorei
Three weeks on the official tour bus, or on board an international flight about every third year. The boys sing in venues large and small, meeting new people and experiencing new cultures across our country, or even throughout the world! The day after returning home, the boys usually have an all-day recording session, right when they sound their best.
Resident camp – early August
Cadet and Viking Choirs
A week-long choir camp that includes traditional camp activities like swimming, canoeing, and archery, as well as choir rehearsals, lots of amazing food, and fun and games all week. This is definitely a fun week for the boys.
Day camp – late August
Open to all boys age 5-12
A week of singing, games, activities, and fun, capped off with a concert and potluck dinner for families on Friday evening. Includes a swimming day-trip, a day-camp t-shirt, and a ride on the official tour bus!
