Keystone State Boychoir Welcomes 10 New Members Of The Aleph Class

Philadelphia – The entering Aleph class was beaming with pride as they donned their coveted green Keystone State Boychoir jackets. These boys are the newest members of the Keystone State Boychoir, joining other boys from Philadelphia and the surrounding suburbs. They received their jackets during the Keystone State Boychoir’s sold-out performance of Rejoice in The Lamb with renowned organist Wesley Parrott on May 19. The standing room only concert was performed at The First Presbyterian Church of Germantown, 35 W. Chelten Avenue, home of the historic McLean Memorial Organ.  It is the largest church organ in Philadelphia.

The concert was part of an ongoing, worldwide celebration of the 100th birthday of Benjamin Britten, one of the 20th century’s greatest composers. The boys worked hard for sixteen weeks to earn their jackets and perform as bona fide members of KSB.

KSB is the only choir in the world to have toured all seven continents.  In 2009, KSB made history as the first choir to perform in Antarctica.  More recently, KSB sang at a ceremony in Oslo, Norway for Nobel Peace Prize-winner Aung San Suu Kyi and presented her with a Liberty Bell.  Internationally, KSB has performed in the world’s major concert halls, including the Manaus Opera House in Brazil, the Petronas Philharmonik Hall in Malaysia, and the Hanoi Opera House in Vietnam, as well as in venues throughout Canada, Brazil, Chile, South Africa, Japan, Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam, Malaysia, Australia, Monaco, France, Germany, Austria, Bulgaria and Norway.
