Calling all singing men! – Don’t miss the opportunity to be part of something BIG, The UConn Brothers Sing On! – Men’s Choir Festival. Male singers from throughout the Northeast will come to UConn’s von der Mehden Recital Hall to join together with singers from the UConn Glee Club, Concert Choir, and a cappella groups for a day of singing and sharing. This event was created to celebrate men singing together and to help reinforce the joy of singing and recruiting of male singers into high school as well as church and community choral programs. There will be performances by the UConn Glee Club, UConn’s outstanding a cappella groups and the UConn BSO Festival Choir. This is an event not to miss!

We look forward to singing with YOU!
