Choir Boy

From getting to record and design these stunning voices to hearing beautiful new music arrangements by Allen Renee at Yale Repertory Theater, Choir Boy was an experience we won't forget! This intense and joyful production was one we got to work on as a team and couldn't be more proud of the voices that came together to create this experience.

For half a century, the Charles R. Drew Prep School for Boys has been dedicated to the education of strong, ethical Black men. One extraordinary student, a gifted singer, has been waiting to take his rightful place as the leader of the legendary school choir. But can he make his way through the hallowed halls of this institution and still sing in his own key?
