Measure for Measure to Perform in the Warrendale Neighborhood

Measure for Measure, a men's choral society, will perform at Sts. Peter & Paul Church (7685 Grandville St.) in Detroit's Warrendale neighborhood. Their concert will happen inside the church this Sunday, March 18 at 4 p.m. This will be their first performance in the neighborhood since 2008.

Measure for Measure

Measure for Measure was founded in 1988 to provide an opportunity for men to perform music composed and arranged for male chorus.  The group made its concert debut in April 1989 under the direction of its founding Conductor, Dr. Leonard L. Riccinto and has since grown fourfold.  Beginning in 2003, under the direction of Dr. Riccinto, Steven Lorenz served as Assistant Conductor and in 2007 became our Music Director and Conductor and continues the legacy of musical growth and excellence to which the men of Measure for Measure continually aspire. 

From the sonorous tones of the deepest bass to the airy lilt of the highest tenor, the classical and contemporary repertoire for male voices delivers a compelling sound unique in its range and in its ability to engage the listener. This is the sound of Measure for Measure, a chorus committed to exposing audiences to the breadth of musical possibilities inherent in men's choral music. A chorus equally committed to growing the ranks of men's choruses by engaging high-school and college choristers in concerts that demonstrate the joy of a rich musical life beyond school years.

Tickets for this concert are only $10. They are available at the Sts. Peter & Paul Parish Office during business hours, after every weekend Mass from the Music Ministry Office, and on the day of the concert at the door.

Measure for Measure returning to our neighborhood is your Cool Warrendale Thing of the Week.
