About the Cincinnati Boychoir
The Cincinnati Boychoir provides exceptional concert opportunities and music education in a safe, diverse, and respectful environment.

The Cincinnati Boychoir is one of the premiere professional boychoirs in the United States. Located in the urban arts core of Cincinnati at the Aronoff Center for the Arts, the Boychoir reaches approximately 200 young men each year from more than 90 schools in Ohio, Kentucky, and Indiana. Since 1965, the Cincinnati Boychoir has been dedicated to the musical, intellectual, and emotional development of these young men and has served as one of the foremost music education and performance organizations in the region; boys attend weekly rehearsals, retreats, music theory classes, and the annual SongFest Summer Music Camp for Boys at Xavier University. Each year, the Cincinnati Boychoir presents approximately thirty annual performances in the Greater Cincinnati region, and has performed concerts and completed residencies both at home and abroad; most recently, the Boychoir undertook three three-day residencies with boychoirs in England (June 2013), and a week-long residency at the Hotchkiss School in northwest Connecticut (June 2014).

As an organization that values collaboration, the Boychoir has built artistic partnerships with Cincinnati’s Vocal Arts Ensemble, the Cincinnati Chamber Orchestra, the musicians of Christ Church Cathedral, Collegium Cincinnati, and Elementz, as well as the many choirs that together make Cincinnati ‘The City That Sings.’ In 2013, the Cincinnati Boychoir was the subject of a thirty-minute special on WCET, Cincinnati’s public television station, entitled “A Treasure of Youth and Song.”

The Boychoir performs regularly with the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra & May Festival Chorus, most recently under the direction of James Conlon in 2012 (Orff: Carmina Burana), 2011 (Mendelssohn: Elijah), and 2010 (Bach: St. Matthew Passion), and under the direction of Rafael Frübeck de Burgos in October, 2012 (Mahler: Symphony No. 3). Soloists from the Boychoir have performed with the Cincinnati Opera, Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra & Pops, the Dayton Philharmonic, the Dayton Opera, the Blue Ash-Montgomery Symphony Orchestra, the Cincinnati Playhouse in the Park, and with many other national and regional orchestras. Six members of the Boychoir have gone on to join the world-famous Vienna Boys’ Choir. Participation in the Champion’s Competition of the World Choir Games in July 2012 resulted in two silver medals for the boys in the mixed choir and the youth choir divisions.
Recent and upcoming projects include Britten’s Saint Nicolas with Collegium Cincinnati (March 2013), Duruflé’s Messe cum jubilo (March 2014), a boys-and-men-only performance of Handel’s Messiah with Collegium Cincinnati (December 2014), and Bernstein’s Chichester Psalms, paired with the world premiere of Dominick DiOrio’s A Horizon Symphony, composed for the Boychoir (March 2015).

FAQs
How does a tour work? Tours begin in May 2016 and the length of each tour varies from 2 to 5 months. Actors travel in teams of two in a combination of run-out and overnight touring in large cargo vans.  Lodging and fuel expenses while touring are paid for by Madcap. Competitive salary offered-- housing in Cincinnati is the responsibility of actor.  All touring actors must have a valid driver’s license and will receive a background check.  

Do I need lots of puppetry experience? Puppetry experience is desirable, but it’s ok if you’ve never worked with puppets before. You will be trained in puppetry during rehearsals. 

What if I'm not able to tour? If you are a Cincinnati-based actor, Madcap sometimes hires actor/puppeteers to perform in our shows at the Cincinnati Zoo and the Linton Chamber Music Series, among others. 

Qualifications: A Madcap actor/puppeteer must be professional, versatile, adaptable and a team performer with a sense of humor who enjoys the challenges of touring and performing for children.
