Choir Bio
The Pacific Boychoir Academy (PBA) was founded in 1998 with six boys and today comprises over 170 boys and young men age 4-18 in seven choirs. The PBA has become known for its rich sound, musicianship, phrasing, and talented soloists. The New York Times said the PBA goes “beyond the reach of most youth choirs” and the Los Angeles Times described the PBA quality of sound and musicianship as “astonishing.”

With the addition of a day school in 2004, the PBA has become the only choir school on America’s West Coast. The choir school integrates a full academic curriculum with daily musical instruction for boys in grades 4-8. The choir school students learn sightreading, music theory and repertoire, as well as Math, English, History, Science, Art, PE, and Languages. The choir school has one of the lowest student:teacher ratios for independent schools in the Bay Area, and is a member of the East Bay Independent Schools Association (EBISA).

The PBA has appeared frequently with the San Francisco Symphony (SFS), performing under the direction of Michael Tilson Thomas, Kurt Masur, Robert Spano, David Robertson, James Conlon, Charles Dutoit, Herbert Blomstedt, and Vance George, performing works by Britten, Orff, Wagner, Mahler, Liszt, Mendelssohn, and Berlioz. Along with the San Francisco Girls Chorus, the PBA recorded Mahler’s Third Symphony with the SFS, awarded the Grammy for Best Classical Album in February 2004. In January 2010, the SFS recording of Mahler’s Eighth Symphony, featuring the SF Symphony Chorus, the San Francisco Girls Chorus, and the PBA, was awarded Grammys for Best Choral Performance and Best Classical Album.

The PBA has also sung with the Oakland-East Bay Symphony, Berkeley Symphony, the UC Davis Orchestra, the American Bach Soloists, the San Francisco Opera, Trinity Lyric Opera, the Youth Orchestra of the Americas, the National Symphony Orchestra of Brasil, the Moscow Chamber Orchestra, the Marcus Shelby Jazz Orchestra, the University of Michigan Men’s Glee Club, the Harvard Men’s Glee Club, the Vienna Boys Choir, the Drakensberg Boys Choir, the Boni Pueri Czech Boys Choir, Denmark’s Herning Boys Choir, the choirs of UC Berkeley and UC Davis, the American Boychoir, and the Santa Clara Chorale.

The PBA has performed at venues such as Davies Symphony Hall, Dorothy Chandler Pavilion in Los Angeles, the War Memorial Opera House in San Francisco, St. Peter’s Basilica in Vatican City, the Shanghai Oriental Arts Center, Basilica San Marco in Venice, Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris, Teatro Polyteama in Jundiai Brasil, Dvorak Hall in Prague, Jackson Hall at the Mondavi Center in California, Herbst Theater in San Francisco, the Forbidden City Concert Hall in Beijing, Chartres Cathedral, Linder Auditorium in Johannesburg, Sala São Paulo, Teatro Municipal in Rio de Janeiro, Zellerbach Hall, Yoshi’s Oakland, on Public Radio International (PRI), on Danish National Radio, at Grace Cathedral, at professional sporting events, and also has several self-produced concerts annually. In 2007, the PBA presented the first performances of Rachmaninoff’s Vespers (originally written for boys choir) by an American boys choir.

The PBA has toured throughout the USA and to Australia, New Zealand, Germany, Austria, Italy, the Czech Republic, France, Canada, Brasil, Denmark, South Africa, China, Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia, and Russia. The PBA’s recordings include Cantate, a recording of Early Music written for boys’ voices, a recording of Christmas music by Benjamin Britten, a recording of two of Bach’s “Lutheran” Masses, and That Promised Land, a collection of American spirituals and gospel songs.

Making regular appearances to sing the USA National Anthem (and on occasion the Canadian Anthem), the PBA has sung for the San Francisco Giants, Oakland A’s, Oakland Raiders, Golden State Warriors, Cal Basketball, and Stanford Basketball. The PBA has also performed with comedian Zach Galifianakis, is the voice of the Yahoo! yodel, has sung for the Chabad Telethon, performs dozens of free school performances every year, and published quite possibly the first ever choir tour blog, in July 2001.

In 2011-2012, the PBA performed over 50 times, including appearances with the San Francisco Symphony, the Oakland Ballet, the American Bach Soloists, the Oakland-East Bay Symphony Chorus, Chora Nova, the Herning Boys Choir of Denmark, in the Oakland Holiday Parade, at the Tech Awards in San Jose, and with Paul Simon.

In the 2012-2013 season, the PBA will perform with the Simon Bolivar Symphony Orchestra conducted by Gustavo Dudamel, the San Francisco Symphony conducted by Donato Cabrera and Charles Dutoit, the Oakland-East Bay Symphony, the UC Davis Orchestra and Chorus, the National Symphony Orchestra of Brazil, for the Oakland Raiders, for Cal vs Stanford basketball, and will present three performances of Rachmaninoff’s Vespers, in San Francisco, Oakland, and Los Angeles.
