About the Boston Children’s Chorus
The Boston Children’s Chorus harnesses the power and joy of music to unite our city’s diverse communities and inspire social change. Our singers transcend social barriers in a celebration of shared humanity and love of music. Through intensive choral training and high-profile public performance experience (locally, throughout the U.S. and around the world), they learn discipline, develop leadership skills, and proudly represent the city of Boston as ambassadors of harmony. Anthony Trecek-King is the group’s President and Artistic Director.
Under his direction the chorus has earned a reputation as an ensemble of high distinction and in 2013 received the National Arts and Humanities Youth Program award from the White House. Trecek-King’s performances have been heralded as possessing a “surprising range of dynamics and depth of expression.” He has collaborated on performances with Keith Lockhart, John Williams, Simon Halsey, Yo Yo Ma and Melinda Doolittle. Recently he directed the American Choral Directors Association National Junior High/Middle School Honor Choir in Dallas, Texas, and has conducted many All State and Festival choirs.
In addition to Trecek-King’s conducting work he hosted the choral music radio program “Together in Song,” presented two talks for TEDx Boston and will play host on the new choral music television series “Sing That Thing.” He holds a B.M. in Cello Performance from the University of Nebraska at Omaha and an M.M. in Orchestral Conducting from Florida State University and a D.M.A. in Choral Conducting from the Boston University.
