If you missed last year’s nearly sold-out ExtrABBAganza!, you won’t want to miss this year’s Pride concert. Twin Cities Gay Men’s Chorus (TCGMC) presents Let’s Hear it for the Boys! The Ultimate Boy Band Review June 24-25.
Dr. Stan Hill, TCGMC Artistic Director, says, “We have 65 different bands of boys represented in this concert. We have spanned the decades from the 1950s to the 2000s and everything in between to find our audience’s favorite songs. You’ll be screaming like its Beatlemania all over again!”
Let’s Hear it for the Boys celebrates the best in popular music from the 1950s to the 2000s created by boy bands. You’ll swoon to music by Powerhouse Boy Bands (Kiss, Journey, and Queen); Popular Duos (Righteous Brothers, Seals & Crofts, Hall & Oates, Air Supply, Wham, and Erasure); Brit Boys (The Beatles, Tears for Fears, Duran Duran, and Depeche Mode); R&B Boys (Temptations, Four Tops, and The Commodores); and recent boy-band sensations (Hanson, New Edition, Boyz II Men, Jonas Brothers, Backstreet Boys, and ’N Sync).
Tickets are now on sale through the University of Minnesota Arts Ticket Office.
Founded in 1981, TCGMC is an award-winning chorus that has built a solid reputation for musical excellence and dynamic programming. Having grown to be the fourth-largest gay men’s chorus in the country, it is a member of the Gay and Lesbian Association of Choruses (GALA). TCGMC has been under the direction of Artistic Director Dr. Stan Hill since 2000.
TCGMC was formed to build community through music, while pursuing musical excellence in performance. In addition, the chorus seeks to provide its members with rewarding musical experiences, and to promote social exchange among a group of men with a common purpose. As an organization that celebrates diversity, and uses music as a way to transform, educate, and heal, TCGMC works toward the elimination of homophobia and intolerance through community outreach.
TCGMC recognizes Lavender Magazine as its official GLBT media sponsor during its holiday concerts.
