Musical Experiences & Vocal Development For La Crosse Area Boys Since 1974
About The La Crosse BoyChoir For Boys Ages 7-14 Who Love To Sing
The La Crosse BoyChoir provides musical experiences and vocal development to boys to prepare them for a lifetime of musical appreciation and enjoyment.
The Education & Repertoire
The curriculum of the La Crosse BoyChoir includes professional-level conducting and instruction, sight-singing, individual voice training, music theory, and musicianship.
The choir’s repertoire ranges from sacred music, classical works, spirituals, and folk songs to modern-day popular, though the significant emphasis is on the former. The beauty and timbre of boys’ voices are unique between the ages of 7 and 14, which results in the beautiful boychoir sound.
Since its founding in 1974, a component of the La Crosse BoyChoir’s curriculum has included local, regional, national, and international concert tours and other character-building experiences.

Meet Our Music Director Daniel Johnson-Wilmot - Founder & Artistic Director
“I love teaching because I enjoy the process that students engage in as they discover the musical gifts and artistic potential they possess and develop that potential to its fullest. The study of vocal music is a cooperative venture where teacher and student and accompanist enter in as partners to explore the creative potential of vocal artistry.”
Daniel Johnson-Wilmot is a Professor Emeritus and Visiting Professor in the Music Department at Viterbo University. He received his Bachelor of Arts in Music from St. John’s University, Collegeville, Minnesota, and a Master of Music in Voice from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. He joined the Viterbo music faculty in 1973 and now teaches applied voice. He previously served as chair of the music department and is currently in his fiftieth year of teaching at Viterbo.
He is a past Regional Governor of the North Central Region of the National Association of Teachers of Singing. He continues to chair the Wisconsin NATS Student Auditions as he done for over twenty-five years. He served two terms as the National Vice President for the Membership of NATS. In 2019 he was chosen as a Master Teacher for the NATS Intern Program. Currently, he serves as the NATS National Student Auditions Coordinator and on the NATS National Conference Committee.
