Abstract

[INTERVIEW PREFACE:] "The artistic skills learned by choristers at the National Boys Choir of Australia are skills they retain for life. Voice-change, or early retirement, doesn’t necessarily mean the end for NBCA choristers. All who depart the community do so with a skillset with which they can champion their lives’ paths. For two NBCA Old Boys, choir life has meant the beginning of pursuing a professional career path in their chosen artistic fields. Christopher Diffey is now an accomplished professional tenor based in Mannheim, Germany who is about to start a new season at the Nationaltheater. Jonathan David Little is an acclaimed composer based in the U.K. and has just released his latest body of work on a CD titled Woefully Arrayed. Here are two Old Boys telling the story from both sides of the artistic ‘fence’, each with rich experience and advice to choristers who are considering turning their art into a career."
