We are proud of the high achievements our young singers have accomplished. Since our founding in 2011, the North Star Boys' Choir has won three awards, released five CDs and undertaken nine tours.
With the help of generous donors, the North Star Boys' Choir can flourish for years to come, allowing more boys to experience these great achievements.
In 2012, during the choir’s first year, the Viking choir went to the World Choir games in Cincinnati, Ohio and won:
*Silver medal, 2012 World Choir Games (Cincinnati, Ohio), Children’s Choir category
*Bronze medal, 2012 World Choir Games (Cincinnati, Ohio), Barbershop category. A special note: the boys were competing against seasoned all-adult men’s groups
In 2018, the Viking Choir competed in the Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines Music Festival and won:
* Overall Grand Sweepstakes Award and Gold Medal Winner of the 2018 Bahamas Cruise Festival of the Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines
In 2012 the choir’s first CD, O Holy Night was released just a few months after the choir was founded. It has since been remastered with improved sound and with a few additional tracks.
The Viking choir released their second CD during the latter part of 2012. I Believe in Music celebrates the choir’s success at the 2012 World Choir Games in Cincinnati.
Following a three week tour to Europe, the Viking boys recorded and released Voices of Gold in May of 2014.
Le Tour was recorded live in cathedrals in Germany and France during the 2019 tour to Europe as well at the beautiful St. John’s Lutheran Church in Minnesota.
The North Star Boys’ Choir showed its perseverance and tenacity through the COVID-19 pandemic by releasing the Voice of Angels in 2021.
