TWIN CITIES GAY MEN’S CHORUS ANNOUNCES
2014-15 CONCERT SEASON
July 1, 2014, (Minneapolis) – Twin Cities Gay Men’s Chorus (TCGMC) is pleased to announce its 2014-2015 concert season performed at Ted Mann Concert Hall. Season tickets are now on sale through the University of Minnesota Tickets and Events.
The Chorus will open its season December 12-14, 2014 with its annual holiday concert, Joyful and Triumphant, which will feature guest artists the Copper Street Quintet. Musical selections will include Morten Lauridsen’s Sure on this Shining Night, John Rutter’s Gloria, Welcome Yule by Craig Carnahan and O Come All Ye Faithful.
The Chorus welcomes the return of spring with Here Comes the Sun: The Music of The Beatles March 27-28, 2015. This all-Beatles program by the Chorus will be performed in anticipation of the 50th Anniversary of when The Beatles played its one and only concert date at Met Stadium in the Minneapolis market. Here Comes the Sun features new arrangements for men’s choruses by Kevin Robison, Artistic Director of Atlanta Gay Men’s Chorus. No band in history has singularly transformed popular music like The Beatles; Here Comes the Sun will celebrate the timelessness and relevance of their music for all generations.
To celebrate Pride in June and close the season, Twin Cities Gay Men’s Chorus will present Popular: A Broadway Cabaret June 19-20, 2015, one week before the annual Twin Cities Pride Festival. Featuring beloved songs from favorite Broadway shows: Porgy and Bess, Wicked, The Book of Mormon, and Kinky Boots, Twin Cities Gay Men’s Chorus does Broadway our way!
Twin Cities Gay Men’s Chorus is an award-winning chorus that has built a solid reputation for musical excellence and dynamic programming. TCGMC is a non-profit 501(c)(3) voluntary community chorus. Formed in 1981, Twin Cities Men’s Chorus added the word “gay” to its title in 1991. TCGMC has grown to be the fourth largest gay men’s chorus in the country and is a member of GALA (Gay and Lesbian Association of Choruses). The organization was formed to build community through music while pursuing musical excellence in performance. In addition, the Chorus seeks to provide its members with rewarding musical experiences and to promote social exchange among a group of men with a common purpose. As an organization that celebrates diversity and uses music as a way to transform, educate and heal, TCGMC works towards the elimination of homophobia and intolerance through community outreach.
