On December 31, 2008, Anthony and Carole from Samurai Virtual Tours celebrated the new year along with many other Southern New Jersey residents at First Night Haddonfield 2009. There were many interesting and entertaining events and performances going on throughout the night. One performance that we made sure to attended was that of the Philadelphia Boys Choir at the First Presbyterian Church’s sanctuary. The choir was directed by Jeffery R. Smith and they put on a brilliant performance.
The Philadelphia Boys Choir and Chorale was founded in 1968 and is now considered one of the top boys choirs in the country. The Philadelphia Boys Choir has sold out Carnegie Hall, sung at the White House and shared the stage with Pavarotti and other famous singers. Their performance in Haddonfield was beautiful and entertaining. There is no doubt that this choir composed of men and boys from the Greater Philadelphia region does an excellent job representing the United States as America’s Ambassadors of Song.
