Gay Men’s Chorus of Los Angeles (GMCLA), one of the country’s longest-running and largest LGBTQ arts organizations, will present GMCLA 40/STONEWALL 50 on August 16, 2019, at the Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles. This Concert and Gala will be a milestone event which concludes GMCLA’s 40th anniversary season and commemorates the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall riots in New York City. The event combines the previously announced July 19 Disney Hall Concert and GMCLA’s annual fundraiser, the Voice Awards, into one truly historic evening.
The concert, conducted by Gavin Thrasher, GMCLA’s Interim Artistic Director, will feature over 500 singers. GMCLA’s 270 members will be joined by the New York City Gay Men’s Chorus and others from around the country to perform the West Coast premiere of Quiet No More, a 35-minute work celebrating the 50th Anniversary of the Stonewall Riots. This work was commissioned by LGBTQ choruses across the country including the NYC Gay Men’s Chorus who will join GMCLA at Disney Hall, as GMCLA will join them on June 27 at Carnegie Hall. The remainder of the concert will feature great choral music from classical, musical theatre, and popular repertoire and a special guest artist to be announced.
In addition to the 7:30 pm concert for the general public, there will be a private pre-concert reception and post-concert dinner for 300 guests, in support of GMCLA’s music education programs- the Alive Music Project, Arts for Incarcerated Youth, and The Partnership for LA Schools.
Single Tickets will be on sale through the Walt Disney Hall Box office at a date to be announced. For more information on Gala Ticket packages and sponsorship opportunities, please fill out the short form below or call (424) 239-6506.
