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.
