Texas Boys Choir


As a world-class boychoir, the mission of the Texas Boys Choir (TBC) is to develop personal excellence and to inspire a lifelong passion for choral artistry. For the past 72 years, the choir has been an educational and performance institution that has continued to provide any boy, regardless of socioeconomic or ethnic background, a structured environment in which to learn the fundamentals of world-class vocal performance.
Extensive training in both music and academics enables the choir to maintain the standard of excellence established when the choir was founded in 1946. This high level of performance has garnered TBC two GRAMMY© Awards. The Choir is currently comprised of 40 boys ranging from grades 5-12 and is under the direction on Kerra Simmons.
