3pm – Men Are Singing
MEN ARE SINGING is a Cornish, all-inclusive, cross-generational male voice choir.
Seamus Carey decided to start MEN ARE SINGING…..
Simply to engage men (generally younger, as admittedly most male voice choirs are silver haired) in a non-competitive (sports), non-alcohol related (most things) activity, which has creative, constructive and positive benefits. And, to sing some more unusual songs which you might not expect from a male voice choir.
His job is to arrange and conduct some of his favourite songs for 35 voices. The men however, make it actually sound good!!
