The Men of Spirito! Ensemble
Spirito!’s men come to the ensemble from all walks of life. Some hadn’t sung since college or high school before being attracted to Men of Spirito! by the Spirito! mission of service, the high caliber of the organization, the camaraderie – and possibly a daughter or granddaughter in Bravura or Ragazze (it is an opportunity unique to Spirito! that a father and grandfather can perform in concert with family members). The Men of Spirito! perform as a stand alone ensemble – and with Bravura and Ragazze – in major concerts and service opportunities throughout the year. The Men of Spirito! ensemble truly brings something special to all Spirito! performances.

Concerts & Service
The Men of Spirito! perform at the major Spirito! concerts in December and May. They sing several of their own selections as well as combine their powerful voices with the Bravura and Ragazze ensembles for selected repertoire.
The group also shares its gifts by singing at area churches three to four times each year. This is an integral component of our mission.
