About St. Petersburg Boychoir
The Boychoir School was established August 6, 1992 by Vadim Ptscholkin, who since that time and so on is its director. Today, about 400 children and young men attend the school choir, and are taught by 10 teachers.
Boys start studying at age of 3 in the school choir. Step by step they are admitted to the Junior Choir and then to the Middle Choir. Usually when reaching the age of 10 the boys are joyning the Concert Choir. The main subjects in the school are the choir and music theory. There are also optional individual vocal and piano lessons. In the time of the voice change boys are attending studies in the targeted organized youth group. In 1997, the entire tenor and bass parts were organized by the boychoir graduates. In 2005, a new choral group created - the alumni choir, based on adults, former youth choir participants.
Our boychoir makes more than 50 concerts a year. Our boys rehearse 3-4 times a week, but new programs are always rehearsed in June in so-called summer choir camp.
