Musaic

Facebook

Musaic is an auditioned all-volunteer men's a cappella vocal ensemble based in San Francisco, CA. Our mission is to share beautiful men's a cappella singing with our Bay Area community. Our music is rooted in classical choral traditions, and performed through a variety of genres. The members of Musaic are passionate about men's ensemble singing, enjoy the artistic balance and musical fellowship it brings to our lives

Musaic began in 2000 as a few friends gathering to sing for their own pleasure. We soon grew to eight members, performed our first concert, and took the name Musaic to represent a mosaic of song and voice. Today Musaic is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. In 2015, we completed our 80th Bay Area concert and released our 5th recording titled "Oh, What a Kick!": a collection of classic songs of the American and English songbooks and Rock and Roll era.

Members: Matthew Schermerhorn, Michael Kyle, Emilio Mercado, Andy Rice, Stefan Schermerhorn, Erick Larson

Musaic: Lyric Journey

Eight members of Talented Bay Area 9-man a cappella ensemble wowed the sellout crowd recently at the Harmony Sweeps Regional at SF's Palace of Fine Arts, and their finely-crafted harmonies are well in evidence on the 21 songs of "Lyric Journey." Beginning with the R. Vaughn Williams-arranged "Bushes & Briars" and Michael McGlynn's "Dulaman," and finishing with three spirituals, the beautiful "Deep River," "Swing Low Sweet Chariot" and "Ride the Chariot," "Lyric" is a musical smorgasbord of tasty short, wonderfully-harmonic cuts. Favorites also include 3 songs sung in German, "In einem kuhlen Grunde," "Du, du liegst mi rim Herzen" and "Till Osterland;" the Swedish folk song "Aftonen," the Aaron Copland-arranged "The Little Horses," Daniel Gawthrop's "Sing Me To Heaven," Kirke Mecham's "Blow Ye the Trumpet," Manuel Sanchez Acosta's "Paraiso Sonado," and the joyous folk song "Vive L'Amour," arranged by Robert Shaw & Alice Parker. "Lyric Journey" is a treat from beginning to end, and all the words are there in the extensive, nicely-printed liner notes.

Musaic: Peace Be To You

We had the pleasure recently of experiencing a ten-minute set by Bay Area 8-man a cappella ensemble Musaic at the Harmony Sweeps Bay Area Regional in San Francisco and are happy to hear more of their tight, joyous harmonies in this Christmas collection, "Christmas with Musaic." 17 songs, and our favorites include deeply spiritual songs like Handl's "O Magnum Mysterium," Paul Manz' "E'en So Lord Jesus, Quickly Come," Burt Hudson's lovely "Some Children See Him," Rene Clausen's "Set Me A Seal" and the haunting 13th century plainsong "Of the Father's Love Begotten;" as well as carols like "Here Comes Santa Claus," "Jingle Bells," "Christmas Song," "Santa Claus is Coming to Town," "Winter Wonderland," "Go Frosty Go," "O Come, O Come Emmanuel," the traditional English drinking song "Landlord Fill the Flowing Bowl" and "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas." A fine collection from talented Musaic.
