Founded in Oakland, California in 1998 by Artistic Director Kevin Fox, PBA serves over 170 choristers a season, has released nine independent albums, tours domestically and internationally each year, and has garnered three GRAMMY Awards with the San Francisco Symphony. The only secular North American boychoir school outside of the East Coast, PBA offers unique and rigorous choral and academic programs, producing confident, engaged young men and artists. The Los Angeles Times calls PBA’s sound quality “astonishing,” while the New York Times hails PBA’s ability to perform music “far beyond the reach of most children’s choirs.” PBA has appeared frequently with the San Francisco Symphony (SFS), performing under the direction of Michael Tilson Thomas, Kurt Masur, Robert Spano, David Robertson, James Conlon, Charles Dutoit, Herbert Blomstedt, Donato Cabrera, Don Davis, and Vance George. Along with the San Francisco Girls Chorus, PBA recorded Mahler’s Third Symphony with the SFS, which was awarded the GRAMMY for Best Classical Album in February 2004. In January 2010, the SFS recording of Mahler’s Eighth Symphony, featuring the SF Symphony Chorus, the San Francisco Girls Chorus, and PBA was awarded GRAMMYs for Best Choral Performance and Best Classical Album. PBA has also performed with esteemed artists such as Kronos Quartet, Omaha Symphony, Oakland-East Bay Symphony, Simon Bolivar Symphony Orchestra, American Bach Soloists, San Francisco Opera, Youth Orchestra of the Americas, National Symphony Orchestra of Brazil, Moscow Chamber Orchestra, Magik Magik Orchestra, Marcus Shelby Jazz Orchestra, Lithuanian State Orchestra, Ian Bostridge, Tom Krell Midtown Social, John Vanderslice, University of Michigan and Harvard Men’s Glee Clubs, Yale Whiffenpoofs, Vienna Boys Choir, Drakensberg Boys Choir, and the choirs and orchestras of University of California, both at Berkeley and Davis.
