Etymology and history
The word "Boscorale" simply rooted from the words, "Bosco" (St. John Bosco) and "chorale," merged to form the word Boscorale, meaning a choir of St. John Bosco.
The Boscorale was first founded in 2006 under the supervision of Mr. Frederick Estrada. It was composed of different high school students grouped into four different voices. Their first performance outside the campus was held in Dusit Thani Hotel, Makati.
By 2007, the choir faced into major changes, including the revision of the members and the conductor, which lead to Mr. Alvin Paulin's entrance in Boscorale's history. At that time, "Sir Alvin" is a newly hired professor in the campus to teach Music courses.
The choir received its first achievement as first runner-up in the 2007 Yoshinoya's Chorale Competition at SM Megamall. They got their first championship title in the Inter-Don Bosco Cultural Competition in 2009. And the rest is history.

Enlightened and moved by the spirit of St. John Bosco, the Boscorale aims to be in melody and harmony with the Lord Almighty, for they believe that "a school without music is like a body without a soul." -St. John Bosco
