Triumphant Return to Masonic Auditorium For Holiday Extravaganza; 22nd Annual Home For The Holidays at Castro Theatre; Special Guest, Melody Moore
San Francisco Gay Men’s Chorus uncorks its historic 34th season with an effusive Holiday season of stunning concerts.
“Think big, think stunning, think sensational,” says Artistic Director, Dr. Tim Seelig, who commences his first full season after taking the reins of the world-famous Chorus at the start of the year: “We’re going to deliver a truly breathtaking holiday extravaganza that’s fun, familiar and fabulous in the one place we can truly do that: Masonic Auditorium - the scene of so many great and triumphant SFGMC concerts.” Seelig has a corker of a concert in store on December 8, featuring a chorus that has blossomed and doubled in size since his arrival. Seelig continues: “Imagine: two hundred and seventy-five singers, gorgeous melodies, a forty-five-piece wind symphony, bells galore and a world-famous opera diva!”
Joining the chorus at the Masonic as special guests will be San Francisco Opera’s favorite soprano, Melody Moore, the Contra Costa Wind Symphony, and Velocity Bells - a fast-moving bell-ringing ensemble. Melody is looking forward to her debut with the Chorus and says, “I think I may leave the mistletoe at home, but this will definitely be a musical love fest full of goodwill to all men and women!”
In fact, Melody Moore is so taken with her new family that she has agreed to join the Chorus on stage again, on Christmas Eve, for the heart-warming traditional trio of concerts at the Castro Theatre at 5 p.m., 7 p.m., and 9 p.m. “For decades, Home For The Holidays has brought untold joy to the thousands who have flocked to the Castro Theatre to celebrate the season together as part of the Chorus’ extended family,” says Donna Sachet who will be adding her own glitter and tinsel to the occasion. The Lesbian/Gay Chorus of San Francisco will also be joining the revels for the 5 p.m. performance.
Tickets start at $10 and are available on-line at http://www.sfgmc.org, by phone at (415) 865-2787 and in person at the Chorus’ box office at the LGBT Community Center.
