I can’t help commenting when articles regarding boys choruses come up. This Times article outlines the “social updating” that is occuring with the hardcore boys chorus schools in Europe. My favorite quote:
“I’d compare the Escolania with Hogwarts in ‘Harry Potter,’ ” said Xavier Palá, a 14-year-old who is graduating. “There they teach you to make magic with wands, and here they teach us how to make magic with music.”
The last Harry Potter movie had quite a mixed choir to provide the mystical feel to the sections of the film. I guess I’m gearing up for summer of boys chorus feats.
