Fort Lauderdale Gay Men’s Chorus (FTLGMC) will celebrate its thirty-fifth anniversary with a special “Why We Sing” concert and retrospective exhibit at 8 p.m. on May 7, at the United Church of Christ in Fort Lauderdale. Attendees will enjoy a sentimental selection of songs from the group’s repertoire, plus a historical showcase of banners, art, costumes, photographs, posters, and more.
The Fort Lauderdale Gay Men’s Chorus has built community through quality musical performances. Its civic engagement promotes a world which accepts and values diversity. Led by founding director Dr. Gary Keating, the chorus was the first established gay arts organization in Florida and has gained respect and admiration from both gay and straight audiences.
The chorus will perform favorites from their songbook, including “Walk Hand in Hand” by Andy Williams, “Sunday” by Steven Sondheim, “Somewhere Only We Know” by Keane, “Family” from Dreamgirls, “What Shall We Do With A Drunken Sailor,” “Where the Boys Are” by Connie Francis, and “You’ll Never Walk Alone” from Carousel. As a special treat, former members of the chorus will be invited onstage to join present voices for a rousing and uplifting finale.
