The Battle Creek Boychoir has been an integral part of the Battle Creek community since 1980. Since its creation, the Boychoir has been commited to a standard of excellence in the choral art. The Boychoir and Fratelli members are young men ages five to eighteen and come from various cities in South Central Michigan.

The Boychoir offers performance experience throughout Michigan and beyond. Recent tour destinations have included Chicago, New York, Los Angeles, London, Paris, and Italy.

The Boychoir is about more than singing. It is a fun, rewarding experience that will give boys confidence, discipline, and friends that will last a lifetime. Each year, the Boychoir welcomes back familiar faces, and encourages new ones. If you or someone you know would like to be a member of the Battle Creek Boychoir, please contact The Music Center at 269.963.1911, option 2 to sign up.
