Welcome to The Marin Men's Chorus

The Marin Men's Chorus is a group of men whose common denominator is the joy of singing.  Since our founding in 1981, we have performed at various venues including retirement homes, civic functions, and formal concerts. Chorus programs have included a variety of vocal music.  Learn more on our History page

Our director is Denise Wharmby and our accompanist is Heather Creighton.  We currently have about 30 active members but seek to increase our membership. We invite interested men to join us at one of our rehearsals at St. Stephen's Episcopal Church in Belvedere, CA.  We rehearse every Tuesday from 7-9 pm. 

Details about chorus membership and operation can be found on the Membership Information page.  For questions or other information regarding the chorus, please send email to: thomashaycromwell(at)gmail.com

About our Chorus Director Denise Wharmby

Our director Denise Wharmby was called in to lead the Marin Men's Chorus last spring. She led the chorus in some rousing, rollicking, rough and ready repertoire of the somewhat rarified genre, the Sea Shanty/Songs of the Sea. The men, and audience at the Spring concert, loved her energy and enthusiasm so much, they invited her to return and all look forward to great success in the coming season.

Denise brings years of theatrical experience, sense of humor, vocal expertise and remnants of an Australian accent to the Marin Men’s Chorus rehearsal room and concert platform. She has worked as a professional pianist, singer, music director, voice teacher and chorus director, here in Marin and around the globe.

A Statement from General Manager Thomas Cromwell:

After over two years we have resurrected the Marin Men's Chorus. Several chorus’ have been successfully back in operation for a few months now. Covid (Omicron) is not over but numbers here in Marin and throughout the country are dropping substantially. So it appears we have gone from a pandemic virus to an endemic virus, i.e. it isn’t going away entirely but hopefully we can live with it….like influenza. We want everyone to be fully vaccinated and boosted although it will be on the honor system. At this time we won’t require masks but bring one along just in case. If you want to try a singer's mask several varieties are available on Amazon.

The Marin Men’s Chorus has been performing in and around Marin for 42 years. We are looking for new memmbers. Repertoire consists of familiar music in 2-3 part harmony with a professional conductor and pianist. We rehearse Tuesday evenings at St. Stephens Episcopal Church on Belvedere with two formal concerts each year. No particular skills, experience, or auditions are required. Just an abiding interest in singing and companionship with a great group of men. For more information visit our Membership page or email Pius Kampfen at pius(at)kampfen.com.
