Under the direction of Joseph Crnko, the Northwest Boychoir is the premier children’s choir in the Pacific Northwest, with 200 young singers, ages 6 to 14, in five levels of graded training and performing choirs. The treble members of the touring Northwest Boychoir range in age from 10 to 14 and perform regularly with the Seattle Symphony, on movie and video game soundtracks, in professional recording studios, and as part of their own year‐round schedule of concerts.
Every boy with the musical talent and drive to succeed is accepted into the program, regardless of financial background.

This tour marks the Northwest Boychoir’s 24th national or international tour in 40 years. Prior tours have taken the choir to Great Britain, Eastern Europe, Washington, D.C., Australia, the West and East Coast of the United States, as well as Japan and Hawaii.

“Our boys are ambassadors for Seattle and the Pacific Northwest,” says Crnko. “Wherever they travel, they unite audiences through the power of outstanding choral music while being immersed in the rich and diverse cultures of the places they visit. ”

The Northwest Boychoir is firmly woven into the cultural fabric of the Puget Sound and has delighted audiences with its annual ‘A Festival of Lessons & Carols’ for 36 years. The Seattle Symphony leads a long list of professional arts groups that rely on the talents of the Boychoir, which has recently performed on the Symphony stage in performances of Britten’s War Requiem and Berlioz’ Damnation of Faust. They will join the Symphony in its 2014‐15 season-closing performances of Mahler’s Symphony No. 3.

“Working with the Northwest Boychoir was a great experience,” said Michael Giacchino, Oscar‐winning composer, following a recording session. “I was in awe of their sound.”

Joseph Crnko, in his 31st year as Music Director of the Northwest Boychoir, is originally from Southern California. He is Associate Conductor for Choral Activities at the Seattle Symphony and also regularly conducts orchestral and choral recording sessions for movie and video game soundtracks. Among his many projects are the films The Last Stand, Let Me In, Boondock Saints, The Celestine Prophecy, and such video games as Halo, Medal of Honor, and World of
Warcraft. He holds a Bachelor Degree in Percussion Performance from CSU Sacramento, and a Masters Degree in Instrumental Conducting from the University of Washington.
