Friday, March 24, 2017 - 8:00pm

Pacific Boychoir Academy welcomes their British counterparts, opening their concert presented by Cal Performances. Treasured by the millions who tune in annually to its Christmas Eve broadcast by the BBC, the all-male Choir of King's College, Cambridge, offers an uplifting concert of works drawn from the rich English choral tradition, "all sung with the precision and grace that make this choir world famous" (The Guardian, London). King’s College Choir comprises 16 boy choristers, aged between nine and 13 years, and 14 male undergraduates.
