The American Boychoir

   • Founded in 1937 and committed to creating a distinctively American voice within the thousand-year-old boychoir school tradition, the ABS is the finest boy choir in the nation and among the finest in the world

• Under the direction of Fernando Malvar-Ruiz, the choir has dazzled audiences with its presentation and virtuosity, performing with world-renown orchestras such as the Boston Symphony Orchestra and the London Symphony Orchestra, and on special appearances such as CBS’ This Morning on Christmas Day, PBS’ Live from Lincoln Center with the New York Philharmonic, and numerous movie soundtracks
