Oh no!  2of2 and The Russian are ALTOS!  I am truly a little sad.  Two of my favorite Citadel boys are solidly into puberty now.  Voice change is of course inevitable (mostly), and I can’t be too surprised with The Russian, since his is the oldest boy in the choir at 13, but 2of2 is still only 11!  He looked rather fetching today though…

And that’s the silver lining, of course.  I get to see them more often now, and they both still look very much like boys.  (Unlike my cousin Arcangelo, who looked 15 at 11.  And a mature, buff 15 at that.)

The most troubling thing about this to me is how it bodes for the rest of the Borg Collective.  1of2 in particular.  Now, 1of2 hasn’t started yet, and being fraternal twins they could mature quite differently.  But in my experience, a boy matures around the age his father did.  So obviously, brothers would around the same age.  And 1of2 and 2of2 are the same age.  I’m hoping one of them is an anomaly.  I’m really hoping it’s 2of2, since then Tertiary Adjunct would be later too.

The boy choir really can’t afford this loss easily.  Down two boys in one week.  The Saint still talks about Italino as if he’s in the choir, even though I haven’t seen him at all this semester, so I’m thinking that he’s going to resume singing after the break.  That will be good.  Good voice, cute boy.  10 years old.
