Author: Kenyan Boys Choir

The Boys Choir of Kenya aka Kenyan Boys Choir is a group of youth drawn from different high schools, colleges and universities within Kenya . Perhaps no other African youth choir dominated peer competition like the Kenyan Boys Choir. They’ve earned acclaim abroad as a disciplined youth program with a work ethic that parallels the King’s College Cambridge Choir and the Harlem Boys Choir of New York. Whether in concert or choral workshop a show by the Boys Choir of Kenya is simply an experience – the wide vocal range, diverse pan-African repertoire, mature artistry, drama, and, oh, the costumes! They perform a wide-ranging repertoire - from traditional Masaai and Samburu chants to contemporary pieces from around Africa, modern pop music and not forgetting the regular corpus of European and American choral repertoire with other classics from around the world – Bach, Mozart, Negro Spirituals, as well as Caribbean folk songs remain mainstay. In their home country Kenya , however, audiences throng to their concerts to hear renditions of songs and chants favorite among Kenya ’s 42 main ethnic groups. Other than performing at President Barrack Obama’s Inauguration, the Kenyan Boys Choir has had the privilege to hold concerts in various parts of the world including various states in the USA , China where they had a sold out concert in the famous Beijing Music festival and the United Kingdom. Proceeds from their performances go towards paying their tuition fees, as the choir believes in bettering the lives of Youth through Performing Arts!
