Biography

The Boston Children’s Chorus (BCC) 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.

Under the leadership of creative visionary, Anthony Trecek-King, Boston Children’s Chorus has garnered increasing national and international recognition. The Boston Globe calls the choir “angelic and dazzling” and His Majesty King Abdullah II of Jordan heralds them as “superb.” Once considered an emerging force, BCC is becoming more bedrock than up-and-coming in the Boston community.

Mr. Trecek-King joined BCC as Aristic Director in 2007. Previous to his tenure with BCC, Mr. Trecek-King earned international acclaim for directing some of the world’s greatest professional choral ensembles, including the University of Cologne Chamber Choir, the National Youth Choir of Great Britain, members of the Schola Cantorum de Venezuela, the Juvenil Schola Cantorum, the University Simón Bolívar, Omaha Symphony Chamber Orchestra, and Polifonija, a state chorus of Lithuania.
