We are excited to invite you and your tenor and bass singers to join us for RitterSing (formerly titled Real Men Sing) at Wartburg College on Saturday, October 2nd , 2021! This event is designed to jump-start and motivate the tenors and basses in your choral program early in the year.
The festival offers two choirs: a 7-9/10 Grade Chorus and a 9/10 Grade–Adult Chorus. Choose whichever choir works best for your students.

Nationally recognized vocal chamber artist and conductor, former Cantus Baritone and Assistant Conductor of the National Lutheran Choir, Adam Reinwald will conduct the 7-9/10 Grade Chorus, and Wartburg’s Director of Choral Activities, Dr. Lee Nelson, will conduct the 9/10 Grade – Adult chorus.

We are excited to announce that the 2019 International Barbershop Harmony Society Quartet Champions, Signature will be our featured guest ensemble for the festival. RitterSing participants will come together with Signature on the award winning arrangement of “Sweet Caroline”.
