About The Palmetto Mastersingers

What do Barbara Allen, ‘Liza Jane, Annie, Georgia Brown, and Aura Lee have in common? The Palmetto Mastersingers will salute these women, and more, in a program called “Here’s To The Ladies.”
When Lillian Quackenbush became the first woman director of the all-male Mastersingers, she tipped her hat to her new employers with “It’s A Guy Thing” as the theme of their first performance together. A year later, turnabout is fair play. From the opening “Here’s to all the lovely women” to the finale “Good Night Ladies,” the musical tribute ranges from the serious to the silly.
Quackenbush has organized the songs around the themes of Saints, Sirens, Stalwarts and Sweethearts. For those who prefer the classics, the program includes the Biebl arrangement of “Ave Maria,” along with Schubert’s “La Pastorella” and Pablo Casals’ “Nigra Sum.” For fun, the men chuckle at the Cookery Maid’s less than stellar culinary skills, and they join Old Mother Hubbard in her search for a bone for her dog. Among the Sirens, the sea chanty “The Mermaid” lures a young British sailor off of his ship, and the madrigal “April Is In My Mistress’ Face” follows an ill-fated romance through the seasons. “Barb’ra Allen” is no sweetheart either.
Dr. Quackenbush was awarded the Elizabeth O’Neill Verner Governor’s Award for Lifetime Achievement in the Arts by the South Carolina Arts Commission in 2012. Having previously led numerous choirs and choruses in the Columbia area.
The beloved Arpad Darazs, then of the music faculty at the University of South Carolina, organized The Palmetto Mastersingers to create an opportunity for men to continue presenting outstanding choral music after leaving college. Having performed locally, nationally, and internationally since 1981, the group has earned the distinction, “South Carolina’s Musical Ambassadors.”
