(formerly Real Men Sing!)
4th Annual Men’s Choir Festival
Saturday – October 15, 2016
Hosted by the UConn Men’s Glee Club – Matt Travis, Director
The date has changed and the name has changed but the festival remains the same exciting, supportive singing event for men as before. On Saturday, October 15th, male singers from throughout Connecticut will come to UConn’s von der Mehden Recital Hall to join together with singers from the UConn Men’s Glee Club, Concert Choir, and a cappella groups for a day of singing and sharing. This event has been created to celebrate men singing together and to help reinforce the joy of singing and recruiting of male singers into high school and community choral programs.
Open to singers of all ages, participants will form a festival chorus under the direction of Dr. Jamie Spillane. Singers will have the chance to hear and perform alongside Metropolitan Opera bass-baritone and UConn faculty member, Rod Nelman. The day will culminate in a 4:00 PM finale performance including UConn’s all-male a cappella groups, the Conn Men and CDN (Completely Different Note), the UConn Men’s Glee Club, the Men of the UConn Concert Choir, Professor Rod Nelman, AND the Brothers Sing On! Festival Chorus.
Participation fee is $15.00 per singer and includes a Brothers Sing On! Festival t-shirt.
