Boy Choir Begins 57th Season

The Atlanta Boy Choir recently returned from Poland and the Czech Republic, where they were in-vited to participate in the honoring of Pope John Paul II’s elevation to Sainthood. The choir sang at his home church in Krakow as well as at the Great Cathedral of St. John in Warsaw.

 

The choir was established 57 years ago by current director, Fletcher Wolfe and has sung all over the world. It even has name recognition abroad like one of its sponsors, Coca-Cola. The choir resides in beautiful Druid Hills opposite the Olmsted Park where they frequently can be seen playing soccer.

 

The over 8,000 boys who passed through the choir are now visible in every form of entertainment. Some of these boys who learned their trade in this musical organization include Broadway Tony Award winning actor, Shuler Hensley; Emmy and Golden Globe Award winner, Dwayne Shattuck; producer of the television series Mad Men; Metropolitan Opera Star, Morris Robinson; American Idol First Runner-up, Justin Guarini and movie composer, Drew Silverstein.

 

Boys come from every background and social status to join this group and form what can truly be called the essence of American diversity.

 

Each year, the choir accepts boys ages 6 to 13 who have unchanged voices and anyone can try out simply by calling the choir at 404-378-0064 or emailing info@atlantaboychoir.org.
