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, mentorship, the high caliber of the organization, the camaraderie. Some have a daughter or granddaughter in Bravura or Ragazze and 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 may sing with Bravura and Ragazze. The Men of Spirito ensemble truly brings something special to all Spirito performances.
