In September 2002, an extraordinary musical event took place. Two of the world's top choral directors working with young members of The American Boychoir and the Newark Boys Chorus made music together before an audience of choral musicians from around the world. They were attending the 14th annual National Choral Conference hosted by the American Boychoir. Body, Mind, Spirit, Voice shows how Dr. Anton Armstrong of St. Olaf College in Minnesota and Dr. Andre Thomas of Florida State University melded a group of young people into an amazing musical instrument. This is also the story of how the arts can inspire and instruct, helping young people learn the values of hard work, responsibility and self-confidence. The documentary, directed by Emmy Award-winning producer Robert E. Frye and edited by Markus Peters, is a lesson for all to witness and behold the joy of the experience.

    If you direct a boys choir or work with boys in a mixed chorus, you should have this DVD. Dr. Armstrong and Dr. Thomas are masters of their art and they show us that boys can be amazing musicians. The DVD works well as a resource for beginning and experienced...
