2017 DC Tour
This preview has been provided by the Raleigh Boychoir.
It's all about community collaborations this year at the Raleigh Boychoir's American Music Festival. Held on April 28, 2018, at Stewart Theatre on the Campus of NC State University, the Boychoir's senior choirs, the Performing Choir and Young Men's Ensemble, will be joined by the Triangle Boys Honors Chorus in a program that will feature music from American composers.
The Triangle Boys Honors Chorus, in its inaugural performance, is an honors chorus composed of boys from across the Triangle who were nominated by music educators. The Raleigh Boychoir and the Triangle Boys Honors Chorus will join together in workshops and rehearsals across the Festival weekend. The culmination of their work will be the Stewart Theatre concert on April 28.
The RBC, through a generous grant from the Amos and Ruth Fowler Foundation, hosts an American Music Festival annually and in recent years has attracted top national choral conductors to work with area singers. This year is no exception as the RBC welcomes Dr. Rollo Dilworth as the festival conductor. Dr. Dilworth is a professor of choral music education at Temple University. A prolific composer, Dilworth has composed over 150 choral pieces many of which are inspired by American gospel music.
Raleigh Boychoir is also partnering with the national non-profit, Music For Food, a musician led initiative for local hunger relief. At this concert, volunteers from the Inter-Faith Food Shuttle will be on hand to collect healthy snacks for their innovative BackPack Buddies Program. The BackPack Buddies Program provides nearly 2,100 backpacks with healthy groceries to area low-income students each weekend when school lunches and breakfasts are not available. The concert is free, but it is hoped that attendees will consider bringing healthy snacks to the concert to contribute to this worthy cause.
