MOUNT VERNON—Brewton-Parker College had the wonderful opportunity to host a 70th anniversary performance of the American Boychoir in Saliba Chapel on the Mount Vernon campus Oct. 18. This is the first time the world-famous choir has performed on the BPC campus.
In the 70 years the American Boychoir has been performing, they have made television appearances, several recordings, and even performed with the American Symphony Orchestra. The choir’s unique performance featured many different genres of music such as masterpieces penned by Kodaly, Gospel pieces, a South African tribute, and even “Jesus Loves Me.”
The American Boychoir is directed by Fernando Malvar-Ruiz who is recognized as one of the nation’s experts in the adolescent male changing voice. The American Boychoir offers year-round membership for boys in grades 3-7.
