TCGMC Announces Season 40!
Twin Cities Gay Men’s Chorus is excited to announce our 40th season! While COVID-19 has impacted the way we will present our concerts in this celebratory year, we are excited to continue to build community and create music in the ways that are possible right now. All concerts will be virtual, and available online. That said, we are thrilled to offer a Patron Subscription Program in place of season tickets which will give subscribers more access and some great perks!
Holiday Hotdish . . . December 2020
A holiday concert mixed with a baking show? I bet you didn’t see that cumin! Warm up your ovens and your hearts; TCGMC is preparing a special blend of choral chestnuts, and new works sure to heat up your Minnesota winter. We are especially proud to present a TCGMC-led, nationally commissioned, work composed by Cincinnati-based composer Steve Milloy to honor the life of George Floyd: “Heavy.”
Carry On . . . March 2021
Iconic jazz and Broadway legend Ann Hampton Callaway recently performed her newest ballad, “Carry On,” for TCGMC in one of our many virtual gatherings last season. Ann has graciously allowed us to set the work for our chorus. “Carry On” is the cornerstone anthem for not only this concert, but also our 40th season. Because we missed you last March, we will revive these works and present them to you in the spring of 2021 – – including the newly composed oratorio that addresses HIV stigma, Stigmata.
Sssh! No Talking in the Library! . . . June 2021
TCGMC sang our first concert in Heritage Hall at the Minneapolis Public Library in downtown Minneapolis. 40 years later, if possible, we will revisit the libraries and celebrate where it all began – in places of learning and diversity. So, we’re not going to talk in the library – we’re going to sing! This concert, comprised of your favorite cinematic music, is designed for families with children and will be a condensed length designed for shorter attention spans. Meet Me in St. Louis? Yes. Lion King? Yes. Unlike that book you checked out in 2015, your chance to treat yourself to this concert is not overdue!
