This year's program features an exciting mixture of representative sacred and secular choral masterworks from the Renaissance to the 21st century, including compositions by Handl, Hassler, Berkey, Clausen, Hatfield, Weber, Barnum, and others.
The SJU Men's Chorus was organized in 1948. Known for its beautiful free sound, 'perfect blend', musicianship, high quality literature, detail to interpretation of text and music, innovative programming and spirited singing, the choir is under the direction of Axel Theimer, who joined the music faculty at St. John's University and the College of St. Benedict in 1969.
All performances on this tour (except in Ladysmith) are free of charge. Donations are welcome and encouraged.
We hope you will be able to come and hear us as we share our love for singing in concert!
