Nice article, and a great program for youth.
We are honored to hear these young men sing each year in our community. It is a sound that will lift anyone to marvel at the sound of their music.
It also takes the dedication of Mr. Cimino to keep it so special. Many thanks, and I look forward to their return performance in our community.

Great article, very understanding both of the artistic and the "human" side of young boys singing. It's nice to see the difference between boys' and girls' voices stated well and forthrightly, when it's ignored or denied nowadays by a lot of people who should know better.
