Event Details

Renaissance Men's Annual Holiday Tradition Now in Downtown Boston!

Now a beloved annual tradition, join us for our one night only seasonal Gala Event to ring in the holidays as only Renaissance Men can!

We will feature traditional classical music for the season, original compositions, and, of course, more cheese than a Cabot Creamery Sampler! Cherished carols and seasonal songs such as "Silent Night" and "Ríu, Ríu, Chíu," arrangements of Christmas favorites in close harmonies, and new favorites by today's hottest composers – Saunder Choi, Paul John Rudoi, Jan Wilke, and the return of a new work for men's voices by our composer-in-residence, Daniel E. Gawthrop (which was also featured at Emmanuel Music last December)!

And, who could forget our rousing rendition of "Frosty the Snowman" which was featured on BuzzFeed and has been viewed over 11,000 times on Facebook?

Renaissance Men

The Boston choral scene is a vigorous one, teeming with artistic outlets for those singers passionate about ensemble performance. Therefore, it was strange to discover that so few groups existed in the area devoted to the wealth of repertoire written throughout the centuries for men’s voice. A few trips to the bar, many email chains, and some truly horrible group name suggestions later, Renaissance Men was formed in January of 2014. From their beginnings as a sextet, the group expanded to nine in their first official season. In November of 2014, they shed, somewhat, from Boston bred early music backgrounds in favor of a program of American religious and folk music entitled RenMen Roots. The audience may have been shocked to see erstwhile Bach specialists strumming away on banjo and upright bass, but their hooting and hollering validated RenMen’s first major attempt to push repertoire boundaries. In February 2016, The Boston Globe highlighted RenMen for their groundbreaking musical retrospective, RenMen 1965, which juxtaposed traditional choral music and rock/pop songs of the year. It also included the world premiere of Five Clippings from 1965, a multi-movement work for men’s voices using texts from Boston Globe articles published in 1965, by Charles Stacy III, then a student at the Phillips Academy in Andover, Massachusetts. In less than three years, Renaissance Men has paved their way into Boston’s cultural landscape with seven constructed concert series, the performance of several U.S. and world premieres by internationally-celebrated composers such as Patricia Van Ness and Daniel E. Gawthrop, and the garnering of a devoted following in their concerts, broadcasted live-streams, and social media outlets. Dedicated to the art of collaboration, RenMen has partnered with Boston City Singers, Ensemble Musica Humana, and in October of 2016 was featured in a talkback session on ensemble marketing and branding co-hosted by Boston Singers Resource and Greater Boston Choral Consortium.

Renaissance Men's debut record, RenMen Laments, was produced by Grammy-nominated Chris Sclafani (Justin Bieber, Ed Sheeran), and is set to release in 2018.
