Ordinary Boys. Doing Extraordinary Things.
The Land of Lakes Choirboys, celebrating its 41st Season, develops fine young gentlemen through the gift of music. We pride ourselves on our motto of “Music, Respect and Honor,” teaching boys responsibility and independence, musical skill and self-discipline, manners and appropriate behavior. We bring boys together to celebrate the gift of music while teaching them how to work as a team and how to become gentlemen. Our music education includes: music theory, sight-singing, ear training, harmonization, rhythm and much more. The choirboys’ eyes are opened to the profound effect music can have in their lives and the lives of their audiences around the world.
Boys ages 5-7 are welcomed into the Prep Choir where they spend time becoming familiar with how their voice is used as an instrument. Boys ages 8-12, by successfully completing an audition, are welcomed into the Training Choir. Here the boys begin the formal process of the Voice for Life program designed by the Royal School of Church Music. After completing the first level of training the boys become eligible for the Concert Choir. Based on openings in our Concert Choir, the boys are invited to enter this choir to develop further their musical skills by singing in three and four parts. The boys of the Concert Choir travel extensively throughout the United States and abroad.
The Land of Lakes Choirboys devotes all of its time offering private voice instruction, leadership development, a music education and performance opportunities like none other. The organization is also a member of the Minnesota Music Hall of Fame and recognized for its contribution for keeping the arts alive for young boys in our area.
