Join the San Francisco Boys Chorus!

First Grade, Kindergarten, or Pre-K - no audition required

Boys ages 5-12




The San Francisco Boys Chorus offers its program in four Bay Area counties. Our six-level program offers vocal training, music appreciation, handbells and performance experience that is age specific. High school-aged boys whose voices have changed from the treble range can participate in the Graduate Choral. Since 1948, the San Francisco Boys Chorus has trained boys to enjoy music, perform in public and appear in San Francisco Opera productions. The San Francisco Boys Chorus is proud to offer an experience that our alumni say lasts a lifetime.
