“Our audience will delight in enjoying to bawdy favorites, contemporary music, commissioned pieces and touching social tributes,” said Artistic Director, Kathleen Hansen. “Selections include ‘The Lesbian 2nd Date Moving Service’ and ‘Leaping Lesbians,’ as well as more recently performed SDWC showstoppers ‘Soweto: June 1976,’ Adele's ‘Rumor Has It/Someone Like You’ mashup, and Janis Ian's choral anthem ‘I'm Still Standing.’

The chorus will perform Reflections: Looking Back on Our First 30 Years in the heart of Hillcrest at University Christian Church, 3900 Cleveland Avenue.
