Musical Journey to the Cornwall International Male Choral Festival

Perfoming Arts at PBIS 4

Our four youth ambassadors from PBIS Boychoir will sing at the Cornwall International Male Choral Festival with the renowned Prague boys' choir, Pueri Gaudentes. They will experience musical excellence and learn alongside some of the best in the world. As leaders, they will bring back their experience to help continue building our arts programme.

Throughout the week in Cornwall, they will perform in several regional community concerts, including a special trip and performance on St. Michael’s Mount, a tidal island in Mount’s Bay, in the 15th-century building, Chapel of St. Michael. The singers will also perform in the Opening Ceremonies, try their luck in an international competition, and then celebrate their achievements by performing with choirs from all around the world at the Closing International Gala Concert.


And what are our four students’ thoughts about this?

Patrick (Soprano)
“I've been really happy to get back to singing in choir with my schoolmates, and I enjoy learning proper vocal technique. Nothing beats that feeling you get when the music hits you. I'm very excited to participate in such a high-level event as the Cornwall festival, and I know that seeing the other groups will inspire us to reach for a higher height here at school.”

Richard (Soprano)
"I am very happy that I can have this opportunity! I am very excited about going on the trip, and looking forward to all the fun I will have at the Cornwall Festival.”

Tal (Soprano)
“This will be my first trip to Cornwall. I'm looking forward to singing with my friends at the festival.”

Bryn (Soprano)
“I’m really looking forward to travelling to Cornwall again. It means a lot to me to be asked to attend the Festival in Cornwall along with some of my friends. I’m excited to meet new people and to learn from them too!”

About PBIS Boychoir

The PBIS Boychoir began in November 2023, with their debut performance at the Czech Museum of Music. Since then, sixteen dedicated students have been meeting weekly in hopes of making their mark within our school community and beyond.

The mission of the all-boys choir is to provide a community and opportunity for under-represented males in the arts to meet and to learn to use their voices to communicate effectively through singing. The goal is to create a community of understanding boys and young men.

As we take action to build an equally represented community in the arts, the PBIS Boychoir is building awareness and enjoyment for those willing to try. And there is no doubt that our four leading singers will experience success in abundance.
