Troubadours is our boys choir for singers with treble, changing, and changed voices in grades 6 and up. Under the direction of St. Olaf College’s Dr. Anton Armstrong from September through December and a selectively chosen St. Olaf College intern from January through May, this group challenges boys to perform the finest music with an understanding of excellent vocal technique and musicality. The Troubadours perform locally at civic events and concerts, enjoy two yearly retreats, tour regionally in the spring, and perform in our winter and spring concerts. Register now!
Troubadours combines with Anima to form the Concert Choir. Concert Choir rehearses during the second hour of rehearsal on Mondays. The Concert Choir performs at our annual winter and spring concerts, local civic events, and on tour.
Our staff believes singers learn invaluable lessons and create life-long memories by touring. The Northfield Youth Choirs plans tours for each of our touring choirs. The NYC strives to keep tour prices as reasonable as possible and to only charge for the actual costs incurred on tour. For this reason, tour transportation, meals, lodging, and other necessary fees are billed later in the year as a “tour assessment.” Tour information including destination, length, and actual price is given to families early in the spring semester.
