Real Men Sing is open to any male between 6th and 12th grade.  The only requirement is that they enjoy singing, would like learn how to do it better and are willing to actively participate in the workshop.

Students may attend with other members of their choir or as an individual.


A great deal of work has gone into keeping the cost to participate affordable for everyone. The registration goes to help cover the cost of lunch and music for each participant. We will be collecting all registration fees at the event when everyone checks in.

Fee to participate:

Students: $10*
Teachers: $15

*No young man will be turned away for financial reasons. Contact us for details.


There will be NO music to purchase for this event.

Because of timing for the festival and the start of school, the Great Northern Union will provide copies of all the music for participants.  Music will be emailed to participants when their registration is received. Please look over this music to familiarize yourself with it before the event but there will be plenty of rehearsal time so don't feel pressured to have memorized or mastered the songs.

When you arrive, we will provide hard copies of the music for you to use for rehearsal and onstage for the concert. There will be NO need for teachers to purchase music.
