Beale Canto is a professional men’s chamber ensemble, founded in 2012 by Dr. William Skoog, Chair of Music at Rhodes College in Memphis, TN, who serves as the artistic director/conductor. The group was essentially founded from members of the Rhodes College MasterSingers Chorale, and consists of 11 professional musicians most of whom hold advanced degrees in music, and are music professionals in the region. Several serve as educators at the high school and college levels, as church musicians, and/or as professional performers. BealeCanto performs music from virtually every stylistic period and genre, and is dedicated to vocal and musical excellence, and to advocacy for male singing.
The mission of BealeCanto is to be a premiere men’s chamber vocal ensemble, dedicated to the art of male singing and artistic excellence through performances, educational opportunities, and related activities. BealeCanto strives to perform a diversity of repertoire and styles with excellence and artistry, and is dedicated to fostering men’s singing throughout the mid-south, expanding that mission nationally and internationally, promoting male singing in schools and society.
