The Boys Choir of Hampton Roads (formerly Park Place Boys Choir) was organized in September 1997 as a resource for the boys in Park Place area of Norfolk, to expand their positive image through singing. The main purpose of the choir is to develop in each young singer a self-respect and respect for others based upon clearly stated and solidly proven values, while striving for excellence in academics and cultural personal pursuits. It has been proven that musical training provides a basis for discipline and focus that enhances self-esteem in our youth.
The Boys Choir is honored to have had the opportunity to perform with the Virginia Symphony Orchestra as well as Af’ram Fest, Arts Within Reach, Jubilee on the James, M.L. King Memorial, and Nauticus to name just a few. The Choir is widely sought after and has traveled extensively throughout the United States. Each year in July, The Boys Choir travels to attend and perform at the Annual Convention of The National Association of Negro Musicians, Inc. (NANM). This wonderful musical experience presented an invaluable opportunity for our young men to meet renowned African-American musicians from all across America.
It is remarkable to note that each member of The Boys Choir has distinguished himself as an honor student at his respective school.
