PRINCETON, NEW JERSEY: The New Jersey Gay Men’s Chorus. Steven Russell, Director, marks a milestone in their history with their 15th Anniversary season with their annual pride concert, entitled “15 Years Young – An Anniversary Celebration”, on Saturday, June 3, at 8:00 PM at the beautifully renovated Performing Arts Center at Middlesex County College, 2600 Woodbridge Ave., Edison, New Jersey.
Tickets for the evening are $18 for adults, $15 for seniors and students in advance and are available by visiting the Chorus Web site at www.njgmc.org, by contacting the Chorus at 609-396-7774. In addition, tickets can be purchased at participating ticket outlets throughout Central New Jersey. Tickets may also be purchased at the door for $20.
The concert will present a rich assortment of music reflective of the musical history and versatility of the chorus these many years, and features works to preview what lay ahead in the future. Music by composers Debussey, Faure, Cassals & Biebl will be heard along with songs by Judy Gold, Alan Menken, and selections from “Sing for the Cure”, which gave the chorus the opportunity to make its debut at Carnegie Hall this year. In addition, the concert will give the local premiere to “Cowboys, Indians, Bears & Whips: Folksongs of Gay America” by Leo Schwartz. Guest composer Anne LeBaron will be on hand to discuss the premier of her work ”Story of My Angel" for treble voices and digitally processed piano, which features guest ensemble “Upper Octave”.
Other highlights of the evening will be our annual silent auction and a reunion of New Jersey Gay Men’s Chorus singers from previous seasons performing one of their earliest signature songs.
