FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE 
 
Cincinnati Boychoir Now Enrolling for Fall 2021
 
Vocal arts programs available for boys of all singing abilities in grades 3-12 
 
CINCINNATI, OH July 19, 2021 – The Cincinnati Boychoir is getting back into RHYTHM this fall with programs in the vocal arts for boys in grades 3-12 from all over the Cincinnati region. The full and flexible in-person season begins on September 18th, with programs for all singing levels, including auditioned,  non-auditioned and virtual options. 
 
Choristers will learn general and holiday repertoire, music theory, and receive vocal instruction based on repertoire that is meaningful, representative of diverse cultures, and fun to sing, culminating in a unique showcase performance at the end of the fall and spring sessions. Tours will be offered for all core ensembles in the spring and summer of 2022. 
 
“After more than a year of being in a weird rhythm, that was necessary to meet the moment, our community is starting to return to something that feels normal. Our season theme is RHYTHM, and our programming brings awareness to what it means to get back into our rhythm, asks if are there societal  rhythms that need to be changed, and explores musical rhythm from a diverse set of cultures. We’ve designed our in-person rehearsal schedule to be more flexible and added a couple new programs: the Festival Choir and the Virtual Rehearsal Option. Finally, we’re so excited to collaborate with organizations and institutions around Cincinnati and beyond. It’s going to be a wonderful year of learning and singing and sharing!”
 
Enrollment is open to all boys in grades 3 through 12, and a placement audition is required for core ensembles. Virtual placement auditions are currently scheduled for Wednesday, August 18 and Wednesday, September 8. Additional dates and times can be scheduled by appointment. Visit https://cincinnatiboychoir.org/audition to register. 
 
More information about all Boychoir ensembles, including non-auditioned and virtual options, pricing, and financial assistance is available at https://cincinnatiboychoir.org/ensembles, or by calling 513-396-7664 (SING).
 
Jason Alexander Holmes began his current job as Artistic Director of the Cincinnati Boychoir in July 2019. Previously, he served as the Director of Educational Programming at the Boston Children’s Chorus where he oversaw the musical and social education of over 400 singers ages 7-18, a rigorous Teaching Fellowship Program, and BCC’s robust relationship with area schools. Prior to his time at Boston Children’s Chorus, Jason taught students in grades 7-12 at the Rochester (NY) School of the Arts in general music, choir, group voice, and piano, and provided musical direction for several productions. At the core of Jason’s teaching and performing is the belief that we are all expressive and musical beings who deserve to witness and participate regularly in moments of truth and beauty.
