Boys Keep Singing was a series of films that I produced in 2009 with the aid of a large grant from the Arts and Humanities Research Council. The films were made in collaboration with the National Youth Choirs of Great Britain and my co-investigators David Howard and Jenevora Williams. The rationale for the films was peer to peer education – boys who enjoyed singing talking to other boys who might be persuaded to try! The films were originally released via an interactive DVD given free to schools and replicated by a dedicated website. There are no DVDs left and the dedicated website is no longer supported. However, the best of these films, together with a growing collection of new films, podcasts and audio recordings produced since then NYCGB by BKS Media are now all to be found here.
Boys Keep Singing now has a “one stop shop” portal will take you to these locations as well as to the websites of David Howard and Jenevora Williams. I continue to make films in the BKS tradition –though not with the extravagant level of funding enjoyed during AHRC days. Content matters more than slick presentation and I hope the films, old and new, embedded in this site will help promote better understanding of boys’ singing and how to manage it.
