there are few things more joyous than singing, particularly around the holidays. It can bring you back to special moments in your life, and establish new memo- ries that will stay with you forever. Singing as part of a group can create a common bond with people you may not know. And listening to others perform can transport you to a different time or place. This holiday season, don't miss some of the incredible vocal performances right here at home. The Boston Saengerfest Men's Chorus Based in Weston, the Boston Saengerfest Men's Chorus performs all around the world. Literally "singing group festival" in German, the original Saengerfest chorus was founded more than a century ago by a group of Harvard Medical School faculty and students who wanted to sing, eat, and drink together despite the university's ruling that they could not par- ticipate in undergraduate activities such as a glee club. In 1992, the group reestablished itself and this year celebrated its 25th anniversary with 63 singers from 32 towns stretching from Cape Ann to Cape Cod. The group meets Monday nights for rehearsals at First Parish Church of Weston from September through May. It performs a handful of times each year including its annual Christmas Concert.
