A Very RenMen Christmas
It's the most wonderful time of the year! Let Renaissance Men deck the halls of your hearts with a little holiday cheer in our good ole' fashioned way! We offer audiences a wide variety of light-hearted songs and modern sounds to celebrate the season. Treat yourself with traditional British Christmas music, beloved songs of the season, Christmas carols arranged for men's voices by Alfred Burt, and future family favorites from composers Saunder Choi, John Paul Rudoi, and Daniel E. Gawthrop. This concert also features a brand-new setting of O Magnum Mysterium by Jan Wilke. Who knows, there may even be a "Grinch Who Stole Christmas" or Christmas hippopatumus among us!
Renaissance Men explores sacred and secular compositions by those who suffered with mental and behavioral disorders, including works by Schumann, Beethoven, Ives, Monteverdi, and Mussorgsky. American composer Jay Mobley will premiere a major work for male voices based on written testimonials from those in moments of crisis. A concert in three acts, each will be introduced a song from Nirvana's MTV Unplugged in New York album, featuring the songs of Kurt Cobain, which will celebrate its 25th anniversary this year.
Renaissance Men has partnered with National Alliance on Mental Illness Massachusetts to find people who have been affected by mental health issues in some way, both people with lived experience, their family and friends. Their testimony will be the inspiration for Jay Mobley's composition.
A talkback with the composer and performers follows every show. This concert experience makes an impact in the concert hall but also is appropriate for college campuses, community centers, and medical facilities focused on mental health. RenMentality will be RenMen's next commerically recorded record, anticipated release: 2020.
