It’s time again to “Deck the Halls” and “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas!” Three area gay men’s choruses are ringing in the holiday season with programs of festival music.
Their voices are strong, their message is powerful, and their vision is clear.
In addition to parties and parades, this year’s traditional pride festivities will also include concerts by the Fort Lauderdale Gay Men’s Chorus and the Gay Men’s Chorus of South Florida.
The talented gay men’s choruses of the region always offer crowd pleasing concerts and the array of holiday productions planned for the upcoming weeks are no exception:
The Fort Lauderdale Gay Men’s Chorus (FTLGMC) had just resumed rehearsals in June before a freak accident left the 35-year-old ensemble’s future in question.
A song and video created by the San Francisco Gay Men’s Chorus and posted to social media July 1 led to a barrage of harassment including death threats against the group and its members.
At 28, artistic director Brett Karlin is among the youngest musicians in the Master Chorale of South Florida, a semi-professional chorus that performs the great standards of the repertoire in Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach Counties.
