The Boston Children’s Chorus is a creative social integration organization that unites area children across differences of race, religion and socioeconomic status to discover the power of singing and transcend social barriers in a celebration of shared humanity and love of music. Our focus is not on one specific community, but the energy of the intersection of all our communities. We bridge Greater Boston’s many diverse groups and foster a sense of belonging and inclusion. Through intensive choral training and once-in-a-lifetime performing experiences locally, nationally and around the world, BCC enhances the education and social development of youth as future leaders and global citizens in the 21st century.
Named one of Boston's most stylish in 2012, Anthony Trecek-King is the Artistic Director of the award winning Boston Children's Chorus (BCC). Under his direction the chorus has earned a reputation as an ensemble of high distinction and in 2013 received the National Arts and Humanities Youth Program award from the White House. Trecek-King's performances have been heralded as possessing a "surprising range of dynamics and depth of expression." He has collaborated on performances with Keith Lockhart, John Williams, Simon Halsey, Yo Yo Ma and Melinda Doolittle. Recently he directed the American Choral Directors Association National Junior High/Middle School Honor Choir in Dallas, Texas, and has conducted many All State and Festival choirs. In addition to Trecek-King's conducting work he hosted the choral music radio program "Together in Song," presented two talks for TEDx Boston and will play host on the new choral music television series "Sing That Thing." He holds a B.M. in Cello Performance from the University of Nebraska at Omaha and an M.M. in Orchestral Conducting from Florida State University. Currently he is completing his D.M.A. in conducting at the Boston University.
