The Palmetto Mastersingers — Dec. 4

The Palmetto Mastersingers return to Newberry Opera House for their popular Christmas concert at 8 p.m. Dec. 4. Their style of music is universal and a truly magical holiday experience for all ages. The singers have something for everyone, from classical to pop to sacred and even some Christmas carols.

The group based in Columbia was formed in 1981 to promote the male chorus repertoire beyond college walls. Ranging in ages from 22 to 82, this is an all-volunteer group. The Mastersingers have performed at the Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris, The Dom Cathedral in Cologne, Germany; The White House, Carnegie Hall, National Cathedral in Washington, and St. Peters Basilica in the Vatican.

Water Cuttino, music director, is chair of the voice faculty at USC and has performed throughout Europe with over 1,000 operatic performances to his credit. He has also performed over 500 concerts, including a concert tour with the late Leonard Bernstein, to London and Moscow. He continues to concertize on American and European stages. He is also artistic director of the Palmetto Opera, and director of Music at Lake Murray Presbyterian Church.
