What is Real Men Sing?
UAHuntsville wants men come together and find the joy and richness that singing brings to life, particularly the joy and richness that singing in an all-male chorus can bring to life. Through this, we hope to help attract and retain male singers of ALL ages to choral ensembles, and help them to remain strong and vibrant. To accomplish this, we invite all men from Alabama to join us for the first-ever UAHuntsville Real Men Sing
Participating schools, churches and community choruses are not limited to bringing only their “best” students. They can bring one, four, or all of their male singers to this event. REAL MEN SING provides the opportunity to work under some of the very best choral directors in the state, as well as sing beside the men of the Luther College Nordic Choir. (They will also be headlining our concert for the evening.)
