World-Renowned Pacific Boychoir Coming to Mill Valley

Mill Valley, Calif.—Get ready to hear world-class live music right here at the Mill Valley Public Library. The inspiring Pacific Boychoir Academy, an Oakland-based youth choir whose members have performed around the world, will be bringing their voices to the Library on Sunday, May 4th. Part of the Library’s Sunday Specials series for children and their families, the event will feature the Pacific Boychoir’s premier after-school treble ensemble, the Cantori and Trouveres, performing choral arrangements of classical and popular songs.

The Sunday Special begins at 11 am in the Library’s Main Reading Room. The event is free and open to all ages; no sign-up required.

Founded in 1988 with six boys, the Pacific Boychoir Academy today comprises over 170 boys and young men in seven choirs. The Pacific Boychoir is a Grammy Award-winning performing arts program that includes both an all-boys day school and an after-school choir program. Choristers include boys of different ages, places and backgrounds, all working together to produce extraordinary music. The Pacific Boychoir has performed frequently with the San Francisco Symphony, and has sung with such groups as the Berkeley Symphony, the San Francisco Opera, the Trinity Lyric Opera, and the Youth Orchestra of the Americas. The Boychoir has toured throughout the United States and to a long list of countries, from Australia, Brazil and China to Denmark, France, Russia and South Africa, among many other nations.

“We are so happy to welcome the Pacific Boychoir Academy back to the Mill Valley Library to perform as it was one of our favorite events of last year,” said Senior Children’s Librarian Jessica Ryan. “The Boychoir’s versatility in performing both classical and modern pop songs will delight listeners of all ages—so bring the entire family.”

The Library’s monthly Sunday Special series includes fun and exciting musical and dance performances, theater productions, storytelling sessions, and much more, all aimed at children and their families. All events in the series begin at 11 am, one hour before the Library opens to the public.

Upcoming Sunday Specials, each of which will take place in the Library’s beautiful Main Reading Room, include: Throckmorton Theatre Youth Performers on June 15th, The Corner Laughers on July 20th, and The Fratello Marionettes performing The Frog Prince on August 10th.
