The North Star Boys’ Choir was founded in 2011 and has its roots in the European boy choir tradition. It is linked to that tradition through the Artistic Director Francis Stockwell and the Executive Director Craig “Andy” Anderson, whose many years of working together in choral direction has resulted in a unique and musically powerful partnership. Mr. Stockwell, who studied in England, Germany, and Austria, and worked with the Vienna Boys Choir, is internationally recognized for his ability to guide boys to the heights of musical excellence and with them to craft the celebrated Viennese sound so noted for its brilliance, clarity, richness, and tonal range.
