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. This was coined by William Gajelonia, Jr., the Music Club President in 2005.
The Boscorale was first founded in 2005 under the supervision of Mr. Herman Coloma. It was composed of different high school students grouped into four different voices: Tenor 1, Tenor 2, Bass 1 and Bass 2. Their first performance outside the campus was held in Louie's THX Cinema, Mile Long, Amorsolo St., Makati City.
By 2007, the choir faced into major changes, including the revision of the members and the conductor, which led 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.
Boscorale: It's Complicated is the first major concert of Boscorale to mark the 6th year(5th school year) of the choir's existence in the choral scene. The concert happened on March 3, 2011 at the historic and state of the art PhilAm Life Auditorium. The repertoire consists of 17 tracks in total.
The repertoire's genre is quite diverse, as it comprises ethnic, sacred, pop and contemporary music to be general. However, the concert's theme is centered in a romantic ambience, focusing more on love and humorous songs.
Boscorale: It's Complicated also served as the first get-together for the different batches of the choir. The concert attracted 700 spectators, including the school's key people, choir member's relatives and friends, and such.

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
