Germantown’s Keystone State Boychoir returns from tour of Australia [video]

At their first rehearsal after returning from a three-week tour of Australia, the Keystone State Boychoir boys were raving about their trip. Ranging from ages eight and 18 the young men sing everything from classical to contemporary music. 

Founded in 2001 by Joseph P. Fitzmartin and Steven M. Fisher the Germantown-based choir has performed in Canada, Brazil, Chile, South Africa, Japan, Cambodia, Vietnam, Malaysia, Austria, France and many more.

They are the first and only choir to have performed in Antarctica, which also makes them the only choir in the world to have sung on all seven continents.

Joseph P. Fitzmartin, co-founder and musical director of KSB says he was impressed with the boys’ overall demeanor being more than 10,000 miles away from home.

“They were filled with sunshine, happiness and joy, not one of them appeared to be homesick and I guess that’s because they were making music and meeting new people.”

The Keystone State Boychoir will be performing at the First Presbyterian Church in Germantown at 4 p.m. on Sunday, Sept. 21 alongside the Pennsylvania Girlchoir and the Philadelphia Sinfonia as part of the city’s first-ever “kNOw Tech-a-thon.”
