(PRINCETON, NJ) -- Princeton Boychoir’s spring concert, Journey On, will premiere on Saturday June 5 at 7:00pm. There will be an encore performance on Sunday June 6 at 4:00pm. Both performances will be streamed on Westrick Music Academy’s YouTube channel. In lieu of tickets, there is a suggested donation of $10, but any amount is greatly appreciated.
This special concert will feature all three PBC choirs singing music they learned during online rehearsal this spring. Journey On will include a variety of music traditions and will share the boys’ journey of joy and hope through song, reflecting on this challenging time while also looking to brighter days ahead. Journey On will be led by Westrick Music Academy Education Director and PBC Music Director, Fred Meads.
The boys of PBC range from 3rd to 12th grade. Selected by audition, they come from numerous schools in central New Jersey and eastern Pennsylvania and attend weekly rehearsals where they find their voices, build confidence, and build a life-long love of singing together.

Westrick Music Academy provides opportunities to grow in a supportive, inclusive, and joyous environment through the experience of musical excellence. Formerly known as Princeton Girlchoir, Westrick Music Academy (WMA) is the umbrella organization that houses Princeton Girlchoir, Princeton Boychoir, and Music Education Programs. The Music Education Programs offered by WMA are designed to serve both members of the organization’s flagship choirs and those in the broader community.
Princeton Boychoir develops boys into confident young men of character through inspired training in singing, music education, and leadership, who share their musical excellence within the community and beyond. Launched in Fall 2017, PBC has become the premier extracurricular vocal program for boys in the region. The choir is composed of boys from third through twelfth grade, who are placed by audition in one of our three ensembles: Apprentice Choir, Treble Choir, and the Young Men’s Ensemble. Singers are placed by ability, matching each boy with the choir that best suits his vocal, artistic, and musicianship level. In addition to striving for musical excellence, choristers in Princeton Boychoir grow in maturity, self-discipline, focus, and leadership.
Although the Boychoir grew from its sister organization, Princeton Girlchoir, and the two choirs share many traits, there is a unique spirit when “boys’ night” starts every Thursday. Led by Fred Meads, each chorister in Princeton Boychoir strives to be an outstanding musician while developing a sense of poise and self-confidence through education and performance, challenging him to tap into the best part of who he is and what he can accomplish. Now in its third season, the Boychoir regularly appears on concert stages throughout the Princeton area and beyond. They have appeared at the Baltimore Boychoir Festival, the International Boy’s and Men’s Choral Festival in Arizona, and will make their Carnegie Hall debut in 2021.
