San Francisco Gay Men’s Chorus Christmas Eve Performance

Posted by GPGarry | Posted in Holiday Events, LGBT Events, Music Events | Posted on 22-12-2013


It is that time of the year again, and the San Francisco Gay Men’s Chorus are putting on their annual holiday performance this Christmas Eve, titled Shine. This year is the 35th anniversary of the group, who’s first performance was during a moving candlelight vigil held for Harvey Milk on the night of his tragic death. The chorus has played an integral role in LGBT activism over the years, but is also known for their sheer musical excellence, which will certainly be on display this December 24.

There will be 300 participants in the performance which will go down at the Castro Theatre at 5:00, 7:00 and 9:00 PM. Recording artist Matt Alber and SF Opera soprano Marina Harris will make special guest appearances, and of course you will get to hear plenty of Christmas and Holiday favorites. Artistic Director Dr. Timothy Seelig has been reluctant to spill the beans regarding exactly what to expect at this performance, meaning there should be some very special surprises.

Whether you are a member of the San Francisco LGBT community, an ally, or simply a lover of great choral and holiday music, this event is one you will definitely want to check out if time and funds permit. Tickets are $25-$35, and they can be purchased here.
