Who We Are
Each year the Tour choir makes an extensive concert tour. The tours are
developed around performance schedules, and incorporate a close look at
American or foreign history. The choir has toured Texas and fifteen
other states, as well as Great Britain, Canada, Germany, Austria Mexico
and this year Denmark.
Extensive choral techniques are emphasized in the Town choir. The choir
mainly performs locally, however the season concludes with an out of town
performance and a day of special activities.
Techniques in phrasing, enunciation and harmonizing are stressed in the
Training choir. Boys learn the disciplines of the organization and
perform predominately on the local scene.
"There is perhaps no greater time-honored tradition
that that of the boys choir. For over seventeen hundred years
this ancient institution has continued to exemplify
one of the finest methods of educating a boy
during his formative years".
It is in this exemplary tradition that we celebrate
"Making a difference...one boy at a time"
Remember these are ordinary boys who are challenged and rewarded by
excelling at something which engages their hearts as well as their
minds. Hopefully, a boy will leave the choir with an appreciation for
disciplined, concentrated effort, and an ear for the classical choral
repertoire. On a more profound level, these boys discover in the
marriage of music, words, and movement a spiritual dimension to their
lives that might have otherwise been left unexplored.
The Fort Bend Boys Choir of Texas, Inc. was founded in 1982 with 45
initial members by William R. Adams, Artistic
Director of the choir. The
organization has now grown into three performing ensembles with over 160
choristers. The members are selected from the local area by audition and
enter either the Training, Town or Tour choir. Membership is open to
boys whose voices have not yet changed.
The choir was organized to give boys with special music abilities and
interests an opportunity to perform more challenging choral literature
from classical selections to folk music. The group combines the
freshness and enthusiasm of childhood with artistic maturity, something
that can only be achieved through serious work. Boyish energy is
channeled into dedication to excel, team effort and hard work. For other
children, the boys serve as models of purposeful work and high
achievement. For adults, the are inspirational reminders of human
