Puget Sound’s Premier Choir For Young Singers
The Northwest Boychoir’s musical sophistication, rich tonal quality, dedication to exacting perfection, and extensive performance schedule have established its reputation as one of the nation’s premier children's choirs. Its 150 members, ages 6-13, represent 115 diverse public and private schools in King County. For nearly 40 years, the Northwest Choirs has trained thousands of young singers and more significantly, shaped the lives of its members by teaching important lessons in personal commitment, and the value of teamwork and diligence.
Led by Joseph Crnko, now in his 29th year as music director, the Choir’s staff of professional musicians and educators are engaged in the teaching of a rigorous curriculum that trains young singers to be fully-skilled musicians who sing at the highest professional level, read music fluently and perform in professional settings with confidence.

What They Are Saying
“Having been involved with music performance and education for many years, I have never come across a music educational system for children such as this. Our family is very grateful and impressed with the professional, high caliber staff. I must add that being involved with Northwest Choirs is just plain fun, too!“
"It was a real pleasure to hear the choir and catch up afterwards. It's a powerful thing. I learned the intensity and pleasure of working hard. You also took us seriously, and I'm not sure if many young people have that experience. I'm grateful for it often. Thank you."
"I was lucky enough to be a member of the Northwest Boychoir and Vocalpoint and count that experience as, hands down, the most formative of my life."
“The Northwest Boychoir has affected my life an incredible amount, not only because of its world-class musicality, but also because of the amazing friendships I have made and the life morals I have learned from my teachers and mentors at choir. I am motivated to continue my musical and philosophical education with this organization because I recognize how much it has already affected my life, and I know that it will continue to do so.”
"The piece develops into a contrapuntal cri de coeur, incorporating the pure and precise Northwest Boychoir, as well as a mezzo and treble soloists." (VEDEM CD)
