Male singers from throughout the Northeast 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.

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 concert 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!
