Comprised of 55 male students at the Crane School of Music in Potsdam, New York, the Men’s Ensemble focuses on training future music educators and performers by giving its members leadership positions and solo opportunities. The choir is known throughout the North Country for its high standards of musical excellence. The accompanists and instrumentalists are drawn from within the group, as are the student conductors.
The Men’s Ensemble performs each semester at the Crane Choral Extravaganza, and at the annual Candlelight Concert and Spring Festival. This year they have also performed at a variety of school districts, churches, and community centers. Since service through performance is such an important part of the Crane students’ goals as musical leaders, the choir will be working with students at Warrensburg Jr/Sr High School and at Tupper Lake Central School on March 2nd.
The repertoire for this ensemble is both challenging and diverse, including all music genres spanning from the Renaissance to modern-day spiritual adaptations.
In their March 2nd program, the Crane Men’s Ensemble several students will be featured in solo and small ensemble acts, providing opportunities for the students to demonstrate their personal musical interests and talents.
The vocal music program at the Crane School of Music has a distinguished history and includes performances conducted by Aaron Copland, Howard Hanson, Helen Hosmer, Nadia Boulanger, Brock McElheran and Robert Shaw.
