Real Men Sing! 2019
October 12 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
The Staples Area Men’s Chorus (SAMC) wants to help young men find the joy and richness that singing brings to life. It also wants to help high school and college music programs attract and retain male singers for their choral ensembles, and to help them remain strong and vibrant organizations. To accomplish this, we have started the Real Men Sing Choral Festival.
At no charge to participating schools, the SAMC books the facility, hires a guest conductor and a voice teacher, buys the music, and provides an evening meal. Rehearsals and workshops are scheduled in the afternoon and the event is capped off with a concert in the evening.
In addition to the Festival Chorus of over 200 Singers, the concert also features a high school men’s chorus, a college or university men’s chorus, the SAMC, and selected soloists from the vocal clinic. The Festival has been a resounding success, attracting 200 high school age young men from 15 communities and an appreciative audience that has grown every year as news of the Festival has spread.
