A boy's treble voice lasts only a few years. By the age of 13 or 14, most boys will never again in their lives be able to make the sounds that typify a well-trained boys choir. The Pacific Boychoir gives boys with potential the opportunity in these few years to become professional singers, to sing with other choirs, on recordings, with orchestras, and for audiences across the country and around the world.
The educational aspects of music have been well-documented. With music as a vehicle, boys also learn responsibility, how to work as a vital member of a team, how to present themselves, and the value of striving for excellence. Though it takes some hard work, singing in the Boychoir is of course fun! Performing provides once-in-a-lifetime opportunities.
To be a successful member of the Pacific Boychoir, a boy needs:
• Wednesday afternoon availability
• An interest in singing
• A desire to be the best possible at something
We'll take care of the rest!

The Pacific Boychoir Academy is looking for boys age 4-9 who like to sing (boys age 10-18 with previous experience are invited to audition as well). Currently, there are about 120 boys in the after school program. Boys interested in auditioning for the Boychoir can call the choir office or send an e-mail to the PBA.
Though a musical background is helpful, the Boychoir does not require auditionees to have previous musical experience. The purpose of the audition is to determine
- ability to match pitch
- ability to identify musical elements
- joy in music
- willingness to learn
Interested families are invited to call (510) 652-4722 to be contacted with more information, to make an audition appointment, or for information on the day school. For more information of any sort, e-mail the Boychoir.
The PBA after school choirs rehearse at PBA HQ in Oakland.
