The Choir of Man

Since bursting onto the scene in 2017, The Choir of Man has become an international hit, winning the hearts of fans across the globe with its lively, foot-stomping renditions of old pub tunes, Broadway numbers, modern pop hits, and classic rock songs. Seriously, who can resist a group of performers the Chicago Tribune once described as, “Part ‘Once,’ part boy band that went through a growth spurt, and part Chippendales of the voice box?”
