ONE of Australia's best boys choirs will perform in Albury this weekend.
The National Boys Choir of Australia scheduled a performance at St Matthew's Anglican Church on Sunday as part of its Winter Concert Tour.
Melbourne-based since 1964, the National Boys Choir of Australia performs with the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra, Opera Australia and Victorian Opera, as well as being recognised from the Qantas I Still Call Australia Home advertisements, and performances at Carols by Candlelight.
Albury organist James Flores, who will accompany the choir, said it was a rare opportunity for Border residents to see them in Albury.
"It's not everyday you get to listen a choir of this calibre," he said.
"I'd encourage people to come along and listen; who knows when they'll be back? People should also bring their kids along because it's important for kids to see other kids perform; it's the greatest motivation."
