Under the leadership of creative visionary, Anthony Trecek-King, Boston Children’s Chorus has garnered increasing national and international recognition. The Boston Globe calls the choir “angelic and dazzling” and His Majesty King Abdullah II of Jordan heralds them as "superb." Once considered an emerging force, BCC is becoming more bedrock than up-and-coming in the Boston community.
Mr. Trecek-King joined BCC as Aristic Director in 2007. Previous to his tenure with BCC, Mr. Trecek-King earned international acclaim for directing some of the world’s greatest professional choral ensembles, including the University of Cologne Chamber Choir, the National Youth Choir of Great Britain, members of the Schola Cantorum de Venezuela, the Juvenil Schola Cantorum, the University Simón Bolívar, Omaha Symphony Chamber Orchestra, and Polifonija, a state chorus of Lithuania.
At BCC, Mr. Trecek-King has been integral to the development of a rigorous and highly advanced musical curriculum. In addition to learning musicianship skills including sight-reading, music theory, and performance, an interpersonal aspect is integrated into the education whereby singers learn to be compassionate and engaged citizens in a nurturing environment.
Born into an Air Force family from the South, Mr. Trecek-King spent most of his youth in North Dakota and Nebraska. He earned a Bachelor's in Cello Performance from the University of Nebraska at Omaha and a Master's in Orchestral Conducting from Florida State University. Before joining the Boston Children's Chorus, Mr. Trecek-King was a Professor of Music at the University of Nebraska at Omaha and the Artistic Director of the Nebraska Choral Arts Society, Nebraska's oldest and largest community choral organization.
