Keystone State Boychoir (KSB) brought down the house down with their unique energy and stage dynamics as they sang for the American Choral Directors Association of Pennsylvania’s (ACDA-PA) Fall Conference. KSB was invited to take the stage as the headliner performance at the prestigious ACDA-PA conference in an open-to-the-public concert at Zion United Methodist Church in York on Friday, October 19, 2012.
KSB members were excited to spend the weekend in York and visit Hershey Park on Saturday. Members were hosted by families from Zion United Methodist Church and sang at the church service there on Sunday. Approximately 60 selected members of KSB traveled to York for the weekend.
Audiences are moved by KSB’s unique arrangements and energizing stage choreography. The official choir of the Commonwealth, KSB has garnered unprecedented success since their inception in 2001. KSB has 170 members who range in age from 8 to 18 and come from a range of backgrounds and counties in Pennsylvania including Delaware, Bucks, Montgomery and Philadelphia.
Under the direction of Steven M. Fisher and Joseph P. Fitzmartin, KSB has sung to full houses locally and abroad, including the Kimmel Center, Mann Music Center and even made its debut on Broadway last spring. The boys have traveled the world, including making history as the first choir to travel and perform in Antarctica in 2009. This summer, KSB sang at a ceremony in Oslo, Norway for Nobel Peace Prize winner Aung San Suu Kyi and presented her with a Liberty Bell.
The ACDA-PA conference brings together singers, composers, and conductors who share their choral talents in a weekend of events. The ACDA is a non-profit that represents 18,000 choral directors and more than a million singers in the United States whose goal is to bring excellence in choral music through performance, composition, research and teaching.
