George Bragg has been lighting candles for more than sixty-five years. He lit the first candle in 1936 as a choirboy in Coleman Cooper's new Apollo Boys' Choir in Alabama. In 1946, as a college freshman, he began lighting more candles with the founding of the Denton Civic Boy Choir and still more when the choir moved to Forth Worth to became the Texas Boys' Choir. After his retirement from The Texas Boys' Choir, Maestro Bragg continued lighting candles by assisting in the training and development of various American boychoirs such as the Arkansas Boy Choir, the California Boys' Choir, the Singing Sons of Pennsylvania and Florida's Singing Sons Boychoir to name a few. His entire life has been spent teaching, nurturing and encouraging boys, and others, in the "pursuit of excellence." As he enters his 76th year, Maestro Bragg still remains an active force in the boychoir world. He maintains the National Archive of Boychoir in Forth Worth, Texas; he provides active support, both material and moral, to the "Boychoir - Past, Present and Future" and "The World of Treble Voices" websites; and he continues to encourage all with whom he comes in contact to "pursue excellence." Happy Birthday friend.
