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
“Our family is so happy to have found Northwest Choirs. It has been everything we wanted for our son and more. From picnics and camps where they play Capture the Flag between rehearsals, to watching him perform at Benaroya. All sides of him are celebrated.”
“We are so grateful for all the opportunities and experiences Northwest Boychoir has provided for Noah. He sees himself as a musician and chorister. It has been a wonderful thing as a parent to be a part of – to see your child fulfilling their passion. He truly loves being a part of Northwest Boychoir.”
“The education Northwest Choirs provides goes beyond the mechanics of learning music theory and its application. They learn the significance and background of the pieces they perform, which is important from historical preservation and cultural perspectives.
