Charles Town Middle School Boys’ Choir CHARLES TOWN, W.Va. – The Grammy Award-winning Brooklyn Youth Chorus and the Old Opera House presents, “I sing because…” at the Old Opera House on Saturday, March 30. The concert will feature the stories and songs of young people from both Brooklyn, New York and students from Jefferson County, West Virginia, with a repertoire ranging from classical to jazz to pop. This presentation is open to the entire Jefferson County community and beyond, with ample free seating at the Old Opera House in Charles Town, West Virginia.

The Brooklyn Youth Chorus is a collection of young voices led by visionary Founder & Artistic Director Dianne Berkun Menaker. Founded in 1992, the Chorus currently serves more than 700 students in its core after-school and public-school outreach programs.
The Charles Town Middle School Boys’ Choir was established in 2017.  The group was designed with intentions to empower adolescent boys with the skills to sing before and during the vocal changes of adolescence.  There is no prerequisite to joining the group; our members have a wide range of abilities, singing backgrounds, and interests.  The ensemble meets four days a week for thirty minutes.  
Kristopher Burke is originally from Charles Town, West Virginia, but now resides in Brooklyn, New York. Kristopher first joined the staff of Brooklyn Youth Chorus in 2011 as a chorus manager. He now conducts Men’s Ensemble and Men’s Training Division, in addition to serving as the School Administrator.
