San Francisco Boys Chorus Honors Matthew Shilvock

The Grammy award-winning San Francisco Boys Chorus honored San Francisco Opera General Director Matthew Shilvock and Chorus alumnus Graeme Boone at its 69th annual gala on March 4, 2017. Some 250 supporters turned up for a night of live jazz, choral performances, a celebratory dinner and dancing in the St. Regis ballroom.

The evening began with a reception featuring the Lee Waterman Trio followed by a performance from 70 top-level choristers and the awards presentation. After dinner, the party continued with dancing to live music from the Class Act Band with smooth vocals from Norm Meistero.
The result: over $120,000 raised for San Francisco Boys Chorus’ tuition assistance fund.
