Description

For thirty years the men of GMCLA have been telling their compelling stories: tales of unique childhoods, coming out, facing scorn and discrimination, falling in love, finding their own place in the world and singing out for equality for everyone. This holiday album of snapshots will feature stories of holidays past from the men on the risers, all wrapped up in the best-loved songs of the season.

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.
