Community. Activism. Compassion. Since 1978, the San Francisco Gay Men’s Chorus (SFGMC) has brought harmony – and endearing playfulness – to its audiences while launching the international LGBT choral movement as the world’s first openly gay chorus. Blending poignancy, humor and signature SFGMC flair, the Chorus’ 50-member touring ensemble will deliver warm, rich tones and show-stopping production numbers to The Eccles Center on February 13. Concert begins at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are available by callingor online at EcclesCenter.org.
SFGMC’s first impromptu concert on the steps of San Francisco’s City Hall accompanied the 1978 candlelight vigil, mourning the assassinations of Harvey Milk and mayor George Moscone. And the men have proudly waived the flag of inclusiveness, enlightenment, healing and unity ever since, from the historic Castro Theatre to Carnegie Hall. SFGMC has persevered through the struggles of the LGBT movement, including the devastating AIDS crisis. Now under the baton of Dr. Timothy Seelig, SFGMC keeps the soundtrack of civil rights going strong.
Since 1980 when a music critic with the San Francisco Chronicle proclaimed SFGMC “Superb,” the accolades have followed the chorus along with its success in galvanizing and changing the course of LGBT history. The chorus has won Out Music Awards, WAMMIEs and joined forces with non-profits ranging from Make-A-Wish and Matthew Shepard Foundation to Project Open Hand and PFLAG. With Dr. Seelig at the helm, SFGMC has evolved into a musically impeccable outfit while sticking to its original mission. According to The New York Times, “[Dr. Seelig] raises singers from the ranks of amateur to receiving wide recognition for excellent performances of appealing, fresh repertoire.”
“This remarkable, iconic and courageous chorus comes to our stage at a time when we could all use healing and unity,” says PCI executive director Teri Orr. “And SFGMC puts on and unbelievably entertaining show.”
