Las Piñas Boys Choir


The Las Piñas Boys Choir, of Las Piñas City, Philippines, was founded by Belgian Priest missionary, Reverend Father Leo Reinier, CICM, who was assistant parish priest of St. Joseph's Parish, Bamboo Organ Church, Las Piñas, between 1969 and 1994. Its members are all enrolled in St. Joseph's Academy where they enjoy scholarships. They perform regularly in the Annual International Bamboo Organ Festival, and in the Parish of St. Joseph.

The existence of the choir is also closely connected with the presence of the Bamboo Organ. Fr. Leo believed that the Bamboo Organ could achieve the fullness of its being as an instrument to praise God only, when there is a good choir to put into words what the music conveys. With this in mind, Fr. Leo started recruiting young boys between 8 and 12 years, with potentially good singing voices from the parochial as well as public schools in Las Piñas. The year was 1969, the month September, three months after his arrival in the Parish of Las Piñas.


World Champion

The Las Piñas Boys Choir (LPBC) emerged victorious in the two categories it competed in the World Choir Games 2008, Graz, Austria. They got the Silver Medal in the Musica Sacra Category, and the Gold Medal and declared World Champion in the Children's Choir category. The 20-member Las Piñas Boys Choir, based in St. Joseph Church in Las Piñas, home of the world-famous bamboo organ, bested 70 choir groups from all over the world including those from the United States, Greece, Estonia, Great Britain, Russia and South Africa. Most importantly, it got the Gold medal and was proclaimed as World Champion in the Children’s Choir category! The LPBC proved that they are the best children’s choir in the world besting more than 70 choirs from South Africa, Spain, China, Korea, Australia, Austria, USA, Greece, Estonia, Great Britain, Russia, etc. And what is amazing is that most choirs in the Musica Sacra are professional choirs and consists of around 40-60 members. The same goes for the children’s choir category. Almost all children’s choirs have members ranging from 40-70. 20 boys of the Las Piñas Boys Choir (LPBC) captivated and conquered the world! Professor Armando Salarza is the conductor. Alejandro Consolacion II is the accompanist. Staff and consultants are January Hernandez, Norie Salarza, Leo and Donna Renier. Management Team is Msgr. Albert Venus and Fr. Didoy Molina.


Senate recognition

In honor of LPBC's achievement, Senate President and former Las Piñas Representative Manuel Villar Jr filed a senate resolution commending the group’s performance.

"The feat of our very own Las Piñas Boys Choir exhibits the excellence of the global Pinoys whose dedication and commitment to their craft bring honor and pride to the country," Senator Villar said in a statement.
