Twenty-five years ago, Lewiston could boast of two “highly respected” boys’ choirs. Twenty-five years from now, it could have a music-centered day school program showcasing a choral group as impressive as the American Boychoir. That is the dream of Brian Franck, local organist and music teacher at St. Peter’s and Holy Cross schools. “My vision is to create a choir school where we have a program not unlike the American Boychoir’s, but not necessarily residential,” Franck said Friday. “I don’t see any reason why this type of program would not be possible on a regional basis.” The American Boychoir School, located in Princeton, N.J., is the only non-sectarian boarding and day choir school in the Western Hemisphere.
