9th Annual Madison Boychoir Festival

Saturday, January 26, 2019 | Madison West High School

How could MYC reach more singers in our community and how can we have a positive impact in creating a strong culture of singing in Dane County?

The Madison Boychoir Festival was created in response to these questions in an effort to increase access to the arts and positively impact the singing culture of boys in Madison. The festival celebrates male singing voices in a warm and supportive environment and concludes with a culminating festival concert, which is free and open to the public. Registration for the morning festival will be open soon for elementary, middle, and high school singers. Sign up here to be notified when registration opens.

The Madison Boychoir festival is a critical community project that keeps the arts alive for so many children in Madison and encourages boys to cherish raising their voices in song.   - MMSD Elementary School PTO President
