Primary Programs:

New Mexico’s premier Boy Choir features boys ages 6-18 from all across the Albuquerque metro area in four performing groups. The choirs have been heard in many prestigious venues in the greater Albuquerque area and have toured across America and as far away as Australia. The Albuquerque Boy Choir emphasizes the musical education of its members. The boys spend time at a retreat at Hummingbird Music Camp every year, study music theory and earn incentives for musical achievement. Singing with the choir gives young men a chance to develop good vocal technique as well as stage presence, polish, and responsibility.

The Cadet Choir is a training choir made up of boys who have auditioned for the group and who are generally 6 to 9 years old. The Choristers are a training choir, may take short tours in-state and to adjoining states, and consist of a maximum of 35 boys who have auditioned for the group and who are generally between the ages of 9 and 10 and have an unchanged voice. The Concert Choir is the flagship choir of the Albuquerque Boy Choir. It is an in-town and touring choir of no more than 40 boys, generally between the ages of 10 and 16, including some boys with changed voices. Cantamos provides a place for young men ages 15 - 21 years of age with changed voices. This choir is made up of auditioned members and is limited to less than 24 members.
