A nine-man vocal ensemble, the “RenMen” made their debut in 2015 to great acclaim. Christmas Past/Christmas Present offers an excellent example of their range, with traditional classic favorites, like Ave Maria, and The Three Kings, plus contemporary carols by the Beach Boys and Gas House Gang. Here’s a Christmas gift the entire family can enjoy!
Second Annual A Very RenMen Christmas
“RenMen 1965” Join Renaissance Men, Boston’s premier male vocal chamber ensemble, for a musical retrospective featuring music written in the year 1965, in addition to a new work written by 17-year-old phenom Charles Stacy III, using texts from the Boston Globe in 1965. From a cappella classical works to pop tunes with live instruments, RenMen 1965 will examine just how far we’ve come… and how much farther we still must go.
The Assumption College HumanArts series presents Renaissance Men. Founded in January 2014, Boston's professional all male chamber ensemble, Renaissance Men, is devoted to exploring the wealth of largely neglected men's ensemble repertoire found across history and transcending numerous genres. From polyphonic Renaissance motets by Jacob Handl to modern master Randall Thompson's iconic Alleluia, with Old American hymn tunes and traditional spirituals in between, RenMen's a cappella octet presents music of worshipful introspection and jubilant praise. There will be a reception open to all guests in the Tinsley Center, Lauring Community Room immediately following the performance. This performance is free and open to the public.

"Nine in number, the Renaissance Men are at their most glorious when singing en masse. They produce a resonant, lustrous tone over which they have tremendous dynamic control. At their loudest they are imposing, overwhelming and impressive; at the other end of the spectrum, their quiet passages are delicate, transparent and assured...I don’t know if I’ve seen a performing group that seems to be having quite such a good time while delivering a high-quality performance."
