For boys and girls who love to sing!

The North Carolina Boys Choir and The North Carolina Girls Choir are arts organizations for boys and girls between the ages of seven and eighteen. They perform in concerts throughout the area and take part in wider opportunities with other choirs. As the girls and boys progress within the choir, they study progressively more challenging music, are provided with educational opportunities; and travel locally, regionally, nationally, and abroad for performances.

More than just a choir . . .

The North Carolina Boys Choir and The North Carolina Girls Choir educate and train girls and boys in the art of performing the finest music in the choral tradition. Through musical training and choral experiences, the girls and boys develop an appreciation of a wide range of choral literature. They gain self-confidence and poise, develop leadership and teamwork skills, and acquire self-discipline and self-respect. They bond with other girls and boys who share their love of music.

How to join . . .

Mark your calendars. Auditions will be held

Saturdays, August 25 and September 8, at 8:45 am or 11:00 am;
Mondays, August 27 and September 10, at 6:15 pm or 8:30 pm;
in the Fellowship Hall at Binkley Memorial Baptist Church, 1712 Willow Drive, Chapel Hill, NC 27514. (The corner of Willow Drive and 15/501)

At the auditions, girls and boys and their parents will have an opportunity to observe rehearsals.
No formal preparation of singing material or prior singing experience is required.
For our training choir, we are looking for boys and girls with a pleasant singing voice, interest in music, and a basic music ability.
If you feel that your child is more comfortable to audition in a one-to-one setting, or if you missed one of our formal audition dates, please contact the Choir Director Robert E. Unger, or Associate Choir Director, David Cole, to arrange for an individual audition.

If you have any other questions about auditions, our organization or benefits of choral singing for children, please contact
