The Raleigh Boychoir (the “RBC”) was founded in 1968 and is currently celebrating its 50th Anniversary Season. What began as a traditional boychoir featuring boys with unchanged voices singing sacred and classical music has evolved into a dynamic professional vocal ensemble for school-aged boys from kindergarten through high school. The Raleigh Boychoir has undergone an artistic rebirth in the past few years, a transformation that has seen the Boychoir emerge as the premier boychoir in North Carolina. Jeremy Tucker serves as the Artistic Director of the RBC and has continued the choir’s rich history of excellence in music education and vocal performance.
Our program’s mission is to provide professional level music education, world-class performance opportunities, and character development through the following distinct ensembles: Training Choir, Resident Choir, Performing Choir and the Young Men’s Ensemble. Additional special groups are the Tour Choir, which is a selection of the Performing and Young Men’s Ensemble, and our Alumni Choir, featuring former members singing at select performances.
The Raleigh Boychoir produces at least four concerts annually – a Fall Concert, Carols of Christmas, the American Music Festival, and a Spring Concert. A committed member of the Triangle region (Raleigh, Durham, Chapel Hill) arts community– our boys have performed with the Duke Chapel Choir, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill Symphony, the Carolina Ballet, the North Carolina Master Chorale, and the North Carolina Symphony. The RBC regularly invites local school choral groups to participate in our concerts, workshops, and festivals.
Touring is also an important part of the RBC experience and the Raleigh Boychoir has a strong tradition of performance tours nationally and internationally, with recent trips to Carnegie Hall, Washington, DC, and the Republic of Ireland.
