In celebration of Black History Month, Second Baptist Church is sponsoring a concert featuring the Richmond Boys Choir. Founded as a collaboration between Theatre IV and the Boys & Girls Club of Richmond.In the fall of 1996 the RBC conducted its first citywide auditions. As a result approximately 25 boys were chosen for membership. Before long, the mayor recognized the choir as “Richmond’s Ambassadors of Song.”
The choir is in its 20th season and is currently under the leadership of Craig Matthews, music director. They have performed at the Children’s Museum of Richmond, the Richmond Public Library, and the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts. The choir has also appeared on the network television program The Today Show. The August 2015 edition of Richmond Magazine names the Richmond Boys Choir the city’s best youth choir.
