Two Shows: 3:00pm & 7:30pm
Glenn Gould Studio - CBC Building, 250 Front St W
Singing Out, Toronto’s premier LGBTQ community choir, presents SHINING NIGHT, A Holiday Concert, Saturday December 15, 2012 @ 3:00pm & 7:30pm. Performances take place at the Glenn Gould Studio – CBC Building, 250 Front St W, Toronto.
The eclectic program spans a variety of cultural, religious and non-secular genres intended to unify all during this time of peace, light and hope.
The concert’s title song, “Sure on this Shining Night” was inspired by the adaptation of James Agee’s poem “Descriptions of Elysium”. Singing Out will perform Morten Lauridsen’s arrangement, conjuring the quiet reflection we often seek during the hectic holiday season.
Artistic Director Jody Malone describes the program as “reflective of the members who celebrate their diversity not only sexually but religiously and spiritually… but they aren’t afraid to have some fun and ham it up for the crowd as well!” Shining Night marks Malone’s fifth holiday concert directing the 90-voice strong choir.
Tickets are $25 and are available online at www.singingout.com, or may be purchased at Out on the Street 551 Church Street, Toronto. A limited number of tickets may also be available at the door, one hour before each performance.
Singing Out was founded in 1992 as a non-auditioned community choir serving Toronto’s LGBTQ community. The choir’s mission to foster “PRIDE – MUSIC – BELONGING” remains unchanged as it has grown into a fixture of the city’s LGBTQ music culture. The choir has performed in festivals across North America and is a member of GALA Choruses, the Gay and Lesbian Association of Choruses.
