About The Singers' Club of Cleveland
Throughout its 120-year history, The Singers’ Club of Cleveland has presented the finest in music for men's voices, dynamic young soloists, and internationally known guest artists. Through a scholarship program, local voice students receive stipends to continue their music education. The Club commissions and performs music for the enjoyment of its audiences and as a lasting contribution to the musical literature.
Welcome to an exciting and diverse new concert series for our 122nd season!
We are delighted to continue as artists-in-residence at The Breen Center… a wonderful performance space for both eye and ear. Our ticket prices remain at the same affordable level and, once again, subscribers can order additional discounted tickets to bring guests to any concert.
On December 13th, A Season of Peace features not only traditional carols and an excerpt from the Chichester Psalms but also a celebration of the “Christmas Truce, ” a series of widespread, unofficial ceasefires that took place around Christmas 1914. Throughout the week leading up to Christmas, parties of British and German soldiers began to exchange seasonal greetings and songs between their trenches. On Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, many soldiers from both sides and some French units laid down their arms and ventured into a “no man’s land” to mingle, and share food and souvenirs.
On March 14th, the Singing Freedom’s Songs performance includes the Duffy Liturgical Dance Ensemble as our special guest artists. The theme recognizes the 50th anniversary of the march from Selma to Montgomery... the political and emotional peak of this country’s civil rights movement that resulted in the Voting Rights Act of 1965. Songs of freedom from other nations and Thompson’s Testament of Freedom will also be featured.
For the season finale, you asked for it, and you got it! In response to audience survey requests, the May 16th performance is Broadway Swings at Breen. Come along and listen to the Singers’ Club, in collaboration with Victoria Bussert and Scott Plate of the Baldwin Wallace University Music Theatre Department, present a musical journey through the history of Broadway with songs everyone will recognize and enjoy.
