GMCLA Artistic Director E. Jason Armstrong conducts an eclectic program of organ and choral music. Among the compelling classical offerings are Tormis’ Laulja (The Singer), an ode for men’s chorus, organ and percussion; John Tavener’s Song For Athene, composed in 1993 and performed at the funeral of Princess Diana; and Duruflé’s lush Sanctus (from Requiem). Juxtaposing them are such rock anthems as Eli’s Comin’ by Laura Nyro, arranged by Bill Bowersock; Eleanor Rigby by Paul McCartney and John Lennon, arranged by Marshall Webb; __Bohemian Rhapsody by __Freddie Mercury, arranged by Steven Landau; and (Your Love Keeps Lifting Me) Higher and Higher by Gary Jackson, Carl Smith and Raynard Miner, arranged by Bill Bowersock. Levi Kreis is featured on the gospel song His Eye Is On The Sparrow. John West is highlighted on Widor’s lively tour de force Toccata (from Symphony for Organ No. 5).
GMCLA is celebrating its 33rd season as one of the country’s most influential men’s choirs, having performed for two sitting U.S. presidents, on national television, toured internationally, and released 15 CDs. The Chorus is dedicated to promoting civil rights, tolerance and acceptance through music.
