SAN DIEGO -- Do you love to sing? Maybe it’s in the shower or in your car or in the middle of Mo’s dance floor on a Saturday night. If so, and you like putting some loco to your motion, come to the San Diego Gay Men’s Chorus (SDGMC) “Info Night” and learn more about the chorus, its members and upcoming shows.
"I’ve been singing with the chorus for 15 years and absolutely love it," said Joe Gregore, SDGMC membership director. "We have so much fun. There’s nothing like being around a great group of talented guys and putting on incredible shows throughout the year."
The chorus also needs volunteers for its Operations team to help with the “behind-the-scenes” activities at each show and during special projects and events.
Everyone interested is invited to "Info Night" on Wednesday, Sept. 4 at 7 pm at the University Christian Church, located at 3900 Cleveland Ave. in Hillcrest. Pre-registration is requested by completing and submitting an application at www.sdgmc.org and clicking the “Join Us” link. Actual auditions will be held at a later date.
"New members will get to travel with us to Palm Springs for our annual October chorus retreat," artistic director Gary Holt said. "It’s a wonderful time to cement new friendships during rehearsals mixed with a lot of fun."
All singers joining will begin rehearsing for the hugely popular San Diego favorite, the SDGMC holiday show. It will take place on Saturday, Dec. 14 at 8 pm and Sunday, Dec. 15 at 3 pm at the Balboa Theatre in downtown San Diego.
"The holiday concert is always the greatest time to join the chorus family," noted Holt. "We’ll be working on our all-new, twisted version of The Nutcracker along with some of the most beautiful holiday music ever written for men’s chorus."
