This was my first time seeing both the Gay Men's Chorus of LA and LeAnn Rimes in concert, and I was just blown away! What a great time. Ms. Rimes delivered on all fronts (she sang 5 songs including two very impressive dance numbers). And the Gay Men's Chorus was just damned fantastic! Their own troupe of dancers is terrific and the performance very creative! Their rendition of Johnny Cash's "I've Been Everywhere" was terrifically entertaining as they turned the standing choir into a sea of choreographed arm dancing! Loved It! There were moments of all out laughter s well as poignment moments that brought tears as well as each song was interpretted from the gay man perspective (I will never hear "Stand By Your Man" without smiling a gain!). Just loved this show, and will go out of my way to see every performance in the future. Count me a huge fan!

WOW; IT KNOCKED MY SOCKS OFF. Great choral performance. The orchestra was a plus, as well as the dancers. Leann Rimes connected with the chorus in a special way, & they responded to her giving the gestalt of the performance a special feeling. ...continued
About the Ticket Supplier: Gay Men's Chorus of Los Angeles
Hailed by the LA Times as “one of the last important links to a glorious tradition in music,” Gay Men’s Chorus of Los Angeles has been a notable part of Southern California for almost thirty-five years. Formed in 1979 as a completely volunteer effort of 99 men, GMCLA has doubled in size, gained professional artistic and administrative staff, toured internationally, released fifteen compact discs, and appeared with numerous stage, film, and television celebrities like Lily Tomlin, Melissa Manchester, Jerry Herman, Valarie Pettiford and LeAnn Rimes.
Among the many “firsts” of this dynamic arts organization, GMCLA was the first gay ensemble to perform for a sitting U.S. President (both Bill Clinton and Barack Obama); the first openly gay performers to be broadcast over Russian television in 1999; the first gay chorus to tour central Europe (1991) and South America (2006), created the original musical “It Gets Better”to combat anti-LGBT bullying (currently on a U.S. tour), and recently performed at the Academy Awards.
In addition to their vocal excellence, GMCLA wows audiences with their uniquely theatrical and inventive productions, performing three major concerts each season. They bring their music education program, Alive Music Project, to high school students across Los Angeles to build bridges between all communities by sharing music and their personal stories. GMCLA sings for a future free from homophobia and discrimination of all kinds.
