Sølvguttene (the Silver Boys) is the official boy choir of Norsk rikskringkasting (NRK), the Norwegian public broadcaster. The choir, performing in their trademark sailor suits, is a staple of Christmas programming on NRK.

The choir was started in 1940 in the home of then-director Torstein Grythe. In the 60s it was merged with NRK's own boy choir, started in 1947 and led by Grythe from 1951. Grythe is a knight in the Royal Norwegian Order of St. Olav.

His Royal Highness Crown Prince Haakon is patron of the choir.
