The renowned Richmond Boys Choir is performing its season finale concert Saturday, June 27, at Virginia Union University — and they have a special guest.
Boys Choir alumnus Rayvon Owen of “American Idol” fame is scheduled to appear with the choir at its 6 p.m. concert in Coburn Hall, according to Craig Matthews, artistic director of the choir.
Mr. Owen, a Henrico County native and former Henrico High School student, reached the final four in the “American Idol” national TV singing competition before he was eliminated this spring.
A $10 donation is suggested for adults and youngsters ages 11 and older. Children 10 and under will be admitted free.
The Richmond Boys Choir was formed in 1996 as a collaborative project between Theatre IV, the Richmond Symphony and the Boys & Girls Club of Metro Richmond, according to its website.
The group has performed before four U.S. presidents, including President Obama, and has wowed audiences across the nation.
