In May 2014, the group won first place and was named overall grand champion at the Concours European de Chant Choral in Luxembourg. The group's repertoire encompasses a wide range of music from Gregorian chant, Renaissance motets, folk songs, opera and Broadway choruses to spirituals and contemporary works.
Founded in 1954, the Chattanooga Boys Choir is the oldest boy choir in the southeastern United States. Started as one choir of 30 boys, the organization now includes over 100 choristers in five ensembles from across the Chattanooga area and Northwest Georgia.
Thursday's performance is free, however a goodwill offering will be collected.
