One of the most accomplished amateur choruses in the city of New York will be spreading a musical message of unity at their multilingual concert, What a Wonderful World this holiday season.
The New York City Gay Men's Chorus (NYCGMC) will be joined by The Children's Choir of the Brooklyn Waldorf School for the internationally themed holiday concert. Audiences will be treated to seasonal and solstice songs of cultures from around the world, sung in languages including Mandarin, Hindi, Zulu, and more. A video of LGBT choruses from all over the world will deliver a bonus holiday treat, as well.
What a Wonderful World was specially designed "to exemplify the fact that we are not alone in our shared mission of full equality for all," said Dr. Charles Beale, the show's Artistic Director.
To be a part of the spirit of togetherness—and, not to mention, to hear more than 200 of NYC's finest powerhouse voices—tickets can be purchased here for the December 15th shows.
NYCGMC will continue to rock diversity with their vocal vivacity at Four Choirs and a Cathedral: An LGBTQ Choral Celebration, a joint concert to be held during Pride Month and the first to ever feature all four of NYC's LGBT choruses—The Stonewall Chorale, Empire City Men's Chorus, Lavender Light Gospel Choir, and, of course, the New York City Gay Men's Chorus. Tickets for the May 2014 show will be available in April.
Here's to a holiday season where people of all backgrounds can come together in celebration!
