The world-renowned American Boychoir was in Statesboro Thursday night to play a concert at First United Methodist Church. The Boychoir is widely considered the top concert boys choir in the United States. It was founded in Columbus, Ohio, in 1937 and moved to Princeton, N.J., in 1950.
One of the members of the choir is Statesboro's own Steven Metrejean, who also attends the Boychoir School. The boarding school is for fourth through eighth graders and is the only non-sectarian boys' choir school in the country.
Metrejean and the 30-member American Boychoir just completed its 27-day Fall Tour that began Oct. 13 in Shrewsbury, N.J., and ended Saturday in Raleigh, N.C.
Thursday evening, the Boychoir also shared the stage with the Statesboro Youth Chorale.
