NEW YORK — New York City Gay Men’s Chorus have announced their 2016/17 season of concerts and fundraisers, which celebrates a city like no other: New York.
“Our world today has been shaken by tragedy and division and we’ve seen what music can do to connect people, challenge intolerance, and celebrate life,” said Charlie Beale, Artistic Director for NYCGMC. “New York City has long welcomed people from all walks of life to live together and find harmony. With all that’s happening in the world, it feels like the right time to sing music that celebrates NYC as an eternal beacon for inclusion, opportunity, excitement, and inspiration,” Charlie added.
NYCGMC’s 2016/17 season includes an exciting, diverse, and musically rich program that celebrates the city’s attitude and history, the weird and wonderful life and diversity of the city today, as well as NYC’s changing relationship with, and influence on, the rest of the world. NYCGMC will also be taking their performances to all corners of the five boroughs throughout the year—details of which will be announced later in the season.
“This season will be as spectacular and magical as if you’re discovering the city for the first time,” Charlie further added.
