The Newark Boys Chorus is set to perform at 7:30 p.m. tonight at Grace United Methodist Church, 8 Carrera St.
The Newark Boys Chorus was founded in 1966 as the New Jersey Symphony Boys Choir. Three years later, the Newark Boys Chorus School was established to create an integrated academic and music program unique to Newark, New Jersey.
The school is fully accredited by the Middle State Association of Colleges and Schools, and is responsible for the academic and musical education of young urban men from the greater Newark area.
Known as Newark’s “Musical Ambassadors,” the Chorus has performed throughout the world, featuring a diverse repertoire that includes classical music, spirituals, folk music and jazz. In recent years, the boys have toured Australia, South Africa, the Caribbean, Finland, Latvia, Russia, England, Wales, Spain, Portugal and Canada.
With an average of 50 concerts per year, the Newark Boys Chorus has performed in prestigious venues such as Carnegie Hall, Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, Lincoln Center and the New Jersey Performing Arts Center.
The Chorus has appeared on Good Morning America, recorded a BBC Christmas Special featuring soloists Renee Fleming and Leslie Garrett and, most recently, performed the National Anthem for the Thanksgiving Day game at MetLife Stadium.
Tickets to the performance are $15 for adults and $5 for children.
