American Boychoir China Tour April 2017

The American Boychoir is having their first tour in China!! I have a lot of LP records of Columbus Boychoir, which is the former name of American Boychoir. I’m also a big fan of Chet Allen, an American boychoir chorister in 1950s. Since I’m currently not in China, my friends kindly provided photos from American Boychoir’s concerts to post in this blog.

One thing, as a choir fan, found it is very interesting that the Chinese name of American Boychoir (美国男童合唱团) was used for the All-American boys chorus in their previous China tours. So some of the fans was confused that this is the first China tour of American Boychoir, because a choir under this name has visited China before.

The first concert in China, many thanks to my friend Robbie and 海绵 for the photos !!

Les Petits Chanteurs À La Croix De Bois China Tour Nov.2016

For those of you who don’t like me blogging about PCCBs:

This is a personal blog. And if you don’t like it, just don’t visit the blog. Because what I post here is for friends only.  And I think the boys and their parents would like to see the photos.

And for those of you who think that I go to every concert of PCCBs:

No, I can not go to any of their concert because I’m currently in USA. And I go back to China once a year.

The photos are contributed by my friends. And I’m very grateful for that. This blog won’t even exist without so many lovely fans of PCCBs in China.

Programme

The programme is basically the same as the programme in May.

Berceuse (Soloists: Benjamin E and Marin)

Te Deum Guarani – Nella Fantasia (Soloist: Marin)

Mille Colombes (Soloist: Martin)

Pourquoi! (Soloist: Martin)

L’Esperance (Soloist:Paul-Marie)

Kalinka (Soloist:Paul-Marie)

Dili Dili (Soloist: Marin)

Duo Des Chats (Soloist:Benjamin E and Marin)

Concert in Tangshan

Photos from my friends Jill and Robbie. 🙂

 

Concert in Dongguan, Nov. 17

The photographer told me that he enjoyed the two cats sang by Martin !

St. Florianer Sängerknaben in Beijing and Tianjin, August 2016

The St. Florianer Sängerknaben from Austria gave several concerts in China. Two programmes were prepared for the tour. But one of the programme was only performed in Shanghai.

圣弗洛里安合唱团(国内翻译为布鲁克纳合唱团)在八月底举行中国巡演。他们准备了两套节目,但是很遗憾其中一套节目只在上海演。

Autographing sessions were held for all the concerts except Beijing. (again )

所有的巡演都有签售,除了北京。(再一次)

This is the second China tour of the Choir. Last time was around 2008. Alöis was an amazing boy soprano. He is now a countertenor.

这是合唱团的第二次中国巡演,第一次是在2008年,Alöis当时是很惊艳的少年高音,现在已经是一位假声男高音。

Programme (sorry in Chinese only)

Boni Pueri concert in Beijing and Guangzhou, 2016

08935A818976DC01FE72CF1FCD3BDB9F

Poster of “Buni Pueri” in Guangzhou

Boni Pueri sang for the Chinese leader Chairman Xi before. During their tour, they held press conferences in Beijing and Shanghai. Unfortunately, fans were not invited. They also brought their new CD and held photographing session for fans. But they don’t have those in Beijing.

捷克团之前给习大大唱过歌。今年来华规格很高,在上海和北京都有新闻发布会,但是粉丝们并没有被邀请。在各地也有签售,但是北京没有。

They claim that this is their first China tour. But they have been to China at least twice. Those concert tickets were not for sell.

他们声称这是第一次中国巡演,但是他们至少来过两次中国了。只是之前的票都不对外出售。

Boni Pueri is more like a “show choir” than a traditional boy choir. Their performance has beautiful light effects and dances.

捷克团比起其他合唱团,更像是一个表演团。他们的演出加入了很多灯光效果和舞蹈。
