The American Boychoir performed for a packed house Dec. 4, as hundreds filled the pews at Our Lady of Pompei-St. Peter’s Church for a special Christmas-themed performance.
Founded in 1937, the choir is composed of boys in fourth through eighth grades who study at The American Boychoir School in Princeton, New Jersey. Over the years, the choir has performed with a wide array of ensembles and artists, from the New York Philharmonic and the Boston Symphony to Beyonce and Paul McCartney, and has been invited to sing for every sitting U.S. President since John F. Kennedy, according to the group’s website.
Close to 100 parishioners volunteered to help with details for the event, and others also stepped forward as sponsors. Supporting partners included presenting sponsor Solvay Bank; St. Joseph’s Hospital Health Center; Le Moyne College; Woodlawn Cemetery; Gilbane Building Company; Josall Roofing, Testone, Marshall & Discenza, LLP; Robert and Suzanne Congel; Joseph Nicoletti; John and Carol Marshall; and Paul and Michele Kloc.
