RenMen On This Island

in a live performance at the

Connecticut American Choral Directors Association

Fall Conference!

 

 

Renaissance Men has been invited to give the President's Concert at the Connecticut American Choral Directors Association Fall Conference!

 

Boston is a city well known for its rich Anglo-Celtic heritage. This October, Renaissance Men sets sail on a musical voyage to the British Isles with a highly diverse program honoring time-treasured traditions with a unique Sceitimíní only RenMen can evoke – from rarely- heard hymn-lining using 15th century Scottish psalms, to today’s rollicking Irish folk songs with our signature RenMen in-house band. Beloved English part songs by Vaughan Williams, Bairstow, and Bantock will precede Benjamin Britten’s The Ballad of Little Musgrave and Lady Barnard. We will also highlight championed contemporary Irish and Welsh composers, including Michael McGlynn, Paul Mealor, and Hilary Tann. Folk song selections from England, Ireland, Scotland, Wales, Isle of Man, Shetland Islands and Guernsey, sung in the traditional Sean-nós style, will bind the program into one continuous concert experience.

 

Joe Miller, Choral Conductor at Westminster Choir College and international choral clinician, will headline the conference.
