I was a member of the Savio's, Saint Teresa's Boy's Choir for most of my grade school years. The following pages document the choir's accomplishments through restored choir recordings, photos, and memorabilia. Please leave a choir message on the Guest Book page; I'd love to hear your favorite Savio story.

In 2002, I began preparation for this web site, one of the goals I set for myself, was to document every band I played with as best I could. As I dug back in time, I came across a much worn 33 RPM record of "The Spirit of Christmas" recorded by the Savios, St. Teresa's Boy's Choir in 1962. I thought, why wouldn't this fine musical entity qualify for a place on my music web site?

The recording restoration lead to the first choir reunion at the Blackthorn Pub on Seneca St. in South Buffalo, on December 12th, 2002. A Buffalo News article, a radio interview and good old fashion word of mouth got the word out that this much loved choir was to be heard from again. The choir's director, Monsignor Leo McCarthy has restored five more choir CDs that are available by contacting him directly at: Blessed Sacrament Church, 263 Claremont St. Tonawanda, NY 14223, Phone (716) 834.4282, Ext. 404. In the event you are
unable to reach Monsignor Leo, 'The Spirit of Christmas' CD can be ordered
through our contact page on this web site.
