Join Boston Singers' Resource for an incredible weekend of singing with American mezzo-soprano, Renée Tatum!

First, on Friday, July 28, at 7:30pm, come attend a beautiful recital of some of Renée's favorite music from the classical repertoire, in collaboration with pianist Brendon Shapiro. It will be a healing evening of gorgeous singing and artistry to inspire and uplift our community. 

Then, on Saturday, July 29 at 1:00pm, come join us for a master class as Renée works with five BSR members on the craft of classical singing. It's an exciting opportunity to witness first-hand all of the artistic considerations that go into making a recital, like the one you saw the previous evening, possible!
