    Synopsis:
    In the Spring of 2017, the critically acclaimed American Boychoir will make its first debut to China and celebrate its 80th anniversary. The highly anticipated premiere concert will be set in the well known Beijing Concert Hall on April 20th, 2017.
     
    Under the leadership of Fernando Malvar-Ruiz, Litton-Lodal Music Director, the American Boychoir will tour the major cities like Shanghai, Xi’an, Lanzhou, Wuhan, Changsha, Shenzhen, Guangzhou, Hangzhou, Suzhou, Hong Kong.
     
    The 3 weeks tour will bring repertoire of classical but also contemporary music works to the Chinese audience. Under the motto “Around the world in 800 years, the choir will present music works like ”Domine Deus” by J.S. Bach, “Benedictus Est” by ēriks E?envalds, “When I'm 64” by the Beatles, George Gershwin Medley, as well as African, Asian and Latin American works.
     
    Founded in Columbus, Ohio in 1937, The American Boychoir has long been recognized as one of the finest musical ensembles in the world and has dazzled audiences with its unique blend of musical sophistication, spirited presentation, and ensemble virtuosity. The American Boychoir performs regularly with world-class orchestras, including the New York Philharmonic, The Philadelphia Orchestra, and the Boston Symphony Orchestra, and is often featured with such illustrious conductors as James Levine, Charles Dutoit, and Alan Gilbert.
     
    As an icon of American musical excellence, the American Boychoir has been invited to sing for every sitting U.S. President since John F. Kennedy. Touring frequently at home and abroad as preeminent ambassadors, the American Boychoir spreads messages of beauty and hope through outstanding musical achievement.
     
    The American Boychoir is frequently invited to join internationally-renowned artists on stage, and the list of collaborators reflects the extraordinary range of the ensemble: from great classical artists such as Jessye Norman and Frederica von Stade to jazz legend Wynton Marsalis and pop icons Beyoncé and Sir Paul McCartney. The choir's young soloists are also in high demand and have joined forces with the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra, The Cleveland Orchestra, and Spoleto Festival USA, to name a few.
     
    The Hollywood movie Boychoir starred by Dustin Hoffman, Kathy Bates, and members of American Boychoir reflects the choir’s tradition and background, and the movie has achieved international attention.
     
    The first tour to China of the American Boychoir will be organized by Uniart Beijing and World Masters International jointly, which are leading organizations in the field of concert tour organization and choral event organization in China.
