This area of Glendale can get crowded so arrive a little early to find parking behind the theatre or on the next block.

There were a few highlights that I really liked but mostly, the choice of songs were mostly slow. Not as good as previous shows, I thought.

Great performance! I have been attending their concerts (3 each year) for 2 years now -- and each time, they get better and better. The group, under its sterling leadership, continues to expand their repetoire and, very important for choral...continued

Description

America has given the world some of its favorite music, from Leonard Bernstein and Stephen Sondheim to Kurt Weill and Jule Styne—a musical mix made possible only in America. Songs you’ll know, some you don’t, all you’ll love by the end of this fabulous, fun show. Selections from works as familiar as Bernstein’s West Side Story, Sondheim’s A Funny Thing Happened… and Loesser’s Guys and Dolls will take their place by magnificent gems from lesser-known works by Kurt Weill and Marc Blitzstein. It’s an unforgettable selection of great American music!

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.
