Dedicated to excellence….
The mission of Florida’s Singing Sons Boy choir is to foster the musical knowledge, education and vocal training of its members through performances and community events and to provide the community with a source of pride in the talent and professional achievement of its youth.
Each fall over 3,000 third and fourth-grade boys from area public and private elementary schools are auditioned for membership in the entry-level Training Choir. Up to 125 boys are accepted yearly as new choir members. Each choirboy spends the first year of musical and vocal study in the Training Choir before being tested and advanced to the Residence Choir. After further study and broadened performance experiences, boys are again tested and advanced. Most boys moving to the prestigious Concert Choir are afforded the greatest diversity of performance opportunities and musical experiences.

The Second Set of Copland’s Old American Songs, however, was a total joy in the hands of conductor Craig Denison and his crack team known as Florida’s Singing Sons. The choral arrangement, which usually suffers in clarity when compared to the solo vocal arrangement, had no such problem here. The well trained boys sang as one, and deserve all the accolades one can bestow upon them. Intonation, pure as a mountain stream, left one wishing that the gems from the First Set had been scheduled as well.
One couldn’t help but cheer for Florida’s Singing Sons Boychoir. The 40-some lads, with director Craig Denison, marked the Benjamin Britten centennial year with a satisfying performance of “Rejoice in the Lamb.” Britten’s quirky, exuberant cantata includes cats and mice, spasms of religious ecstasy and a climactic fugal section where the boys tossed verses back and forth energetically.
The Florida Boys romped and pantomimed with unforced but energetic accuracy through a setting of The Cremation of Sam McGee.
