Ragazzi Boys Chorus, Silicon Valley

Ragazzi Boys Chorus is one of the San Francisco Bay Area’s premier music and performance organizations for boys. Currently serving more than 200 boys from over 100 schools in more than 30 communities, Ragazzi is the largest boys chorus in the Bay Area. Ragazzi means “boys” in Italian, and is the term used in opera to refer to children’s voices.  

Ragazzi has performed with the San Francisco Opera, San Francisco Symphony, Opera San Jose, Symphony Silicon Valley, and the Stanford University Symphonic Chorus, among others.  Ragazzi was honored for its contribution to the San Francisco Symphony’s triple Grammy Award-winning recording of Stravinsky’s Perséphone and produces its own discography. Under the leadership of Artistic and Executive Director Kent Jue, the group tours throughout the United States and internationally to widen chorus members’ cultural and musical horizons and deepen Ragazzi’s reputation for performance excellence.
