The Appalachian Men’s Ensemble will present the concert “Merry, Merry Month of May” tonight at 7:30 at Munsey Memorial United Methodist Church, 201 E. Market St., Johnson City, and on Sunday at 3 p.m. at First Presbyterian Church, 701 Florida Ave., Bristol.

AMEn will be joined in the concerts by the Lugo Family String Quartet, a local instrumental group.

Concert admission is a suggested donation of $10 for adults and $5 for students.

The program includes many different genres of music, ranging from classical works by Giovanni Martini to contemporary hits such as “Angels Calling” to a newly-composed work by Ola Gjeilo, “The Ground.” All pieces feature the combined forces of AMEn and strings.

AMEn is an all-male vocal ensemble of auditioned voices from throughout the greater Tri-Cities area. The group is dedicated to performing a wide range of choral repertoire — both sacred and secular — from the late Middles Ages to the present. 

The Appalachian Men’s Ensemble is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. Concert updates and additional information about AMEn can be found at www.AppMensEnsemble.org or on their Facebook page www.Facebook.com/AMEnEnsemble.
