The North Carolina Boys Choir was founded in 1972 as the Durham Boys Choir by William Graham and designated the North Carolina Boys Choir in 1983 by then-Governor James B. Hunt, Jr. Through the years the Choir has sung with all the area’s major choral groups such as the Duke Chapel Choir, Choral Society of Durham, Choirs of Meredith College, North Carolina State University and the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill. They have also sung with the North Carolina Symphony.
The Choir tours nationally and internationally and has presented concerts in churches and cathedrals in Canada, England, and Scotland. In 2016 The North Carolina Boys Choir participated in the Requiem by Faure; and this past April, they participated in the Te Deum by Berlioz. The North Carolina Boys Choir and North Carolina Girls Choir are under the direction of Robert Unger and David Cole.
