The San Francisco Boys Chorus honored opera soprano Leah Crocetto and Dr. Fred Cohen, Chorus alumnus and director of San Jose State University School of Music and Dance, at its annual auction and gala on March 9, 2019.

The event celebrated 71 years of training young performers and generated over $125,000 for San Francisco Boys Chorus tuition assistance awards. That financial support makes it possible for some 50 boys from families who could not otherwise afford it, to join the chorus of nearly 200 singers. Led by Artistic Director Ian Robertson, who also serves as the chorus director for San Francisco Opera, San Francisco Boys Chorus provides music education, vocal training, and performance experience to boys from all cultural, ethnic, and economic backgrounds.
