June 1, 2018 - Mastersingers USA To Perform In West Roxbury, MA - June 30, 2018

The award-winning Mastersingers USA will perform a concert on Saturday, June30 at 6:30pm EDT as a featured guest of St. Theresa of Avila Roman Catholic Church (2078 Centre Street, West Roxbury, MA 02132). Celebrating its 21st anniversary, Mastersingers USA (MUSA) will perform a broad range of male choral works, including classical choral works, international folk songs, and American choral music. More information is available at www.sttheresaparishboston.com.The concert is free for all guests and follows the group’s performance of liturgical music for the church’s Mass.

MUSA has performed both throughout the United States and internationally, establishing itself as one of the foremost amateur men’s choruses in the United States. In 2003, Mastersingers USA won the coveted first place trophy at the annual Eisteddfod in Wales earning laurels for the quality of its sound and the diversity of its repertoire. The group represented the United States in the First International Congress of Men's Choirs in Barcelona, Spain in 2005. The group has performed in nearly 20 countries across Europe since its founding in 1997, including some of the continent's major cathedrals - as well as music festivals, and parks (… and more than a few street corners, too).

Only a few of MUSA’s singers are professional musicians; the others fulfill other professional roles as businessmen, lawyers, teachers, ministers, entrepreneurs, architects, and students – but all are bound by their love of performing wide-ranging programs of male choral works including sacred music, folk songs from around the world, and American spirituals.

Many of the singers have sung under Prof. Bruce McInnes’ direction during his career as a music professor at Amherst College and the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire, as well as other institutions in a career spanning nearly 50 years. Prof. McInnes is currently an Adjunct Professor of Music at the University of Maine at Farmington, where he conducts the UMF Community Chorus. Kerry P. Brennan, Headmaster at Roxbury Latin School, is the group’s Associate Conductor.
