"Yesterday’s concert was an incredible mix of high-level orchestration, professionalism, inspiration, and beauty- Brava, Bravo!
I loved seeing the progression and witnessing live how Boston City Singers builds singers through the performances of the youngest singers (Kodaly) right up to the Tour Choir and the impressive BCS Fellas and World Rhythm Ensemble. I was moved to tears by the testimonials by your graduating seniors and a number of pieces, most especially, the Fellas' Danny Boy. Your 2015 graduates spoke eloquently and with poise, humor and obvious gratitude about the difference being part of Boston City Singers has made in their lives. Capping it all off, the Tour Choir's evident joy in singing and dancing together was infectious. Thank you for all you do."
