Many gay men love to sing and many gay men love christmas. So why not combine these two and create a series of concerts? The Amsterdam Gay Men’s Chorus followed this logic and brings on a series of three concerts on the 2nd and 3rd of December in the Polanen theatre. The theme of these concerts is ‘Christmas isn’t Christmas until you get here!’
All out christmas fun and classic hits
The Amsterdam Gay Men’s Chorus will bring you a selection of hits from musicals, nostalgic winter songs and of course, your favourite Christmas classics! In the three shows you can expect songs like ‘Baby it’s Cold Outside’, ‘Sleigh Ride’, ‘Somewhere Only We Know’, ‘We’ve Got Magic to Do’ and of course ‘Have Yourselves a Merry Little Christmas’. But expect many more songs and of course a great performance by the singers and dancers of the chorus.
What is the Amsterdam Gay Men’s Chorus?
The Amsterdam Gay Men’s Chorus is relatively new on the scene in Amsterdam. Inspired by the famous Gay Men’s Chorus from San Fransisco, it brings together singers and dancers from Amsterdam and surrounding places. It is part of an international movement of gay men’s choruses that has sprung up since the foundation of the Gay Men’s Chorus San Fransisco in 1978.
As a modern day Glee Club for gay men, they come together every month to practice, enjoy music and dance and to rehearse for their big shows. They are a non-profit community arts organization that is supported by volunteers and sponsors. So go have a look on the 2nd and 3rd of december what the results are of all their hard work.
