As it’s fourth holiday concert, Fargo-Moorhead Gay Men’s Chorus presents “A Shining Night” on Sunday December 10, 2017 at 7:00 p.m. in the dazzling performance venue, Sanctuary Events Center. The music of “A Shining Night” covers secular tunes, Christmas carols, Hanukkah songs, and even liturgical music from Eastern Orthodoxy. This inclusive show contains a wide range of styles and traditions from the traditional folk carol, “God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen,” to a whimsical rendition of Tchaikovsky’s “Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairies,” to the enchantingly beautiful Russian version of Ave Maria, “Borgoroditse Devo,” from Rachmaninoff’s Vespers. Everyone from child, to teen, to adult–from musical neophyte to artistic protege–from the sacrosanct to the iconoclastic can enjoy this performance! It is sure to be a superb evening: a shining night of music.
Fargo-Moorhead Gay Men’s Chorus is a group of persons dedicated to bringing enjoyment and education to the FM community and its surrounds through the emotive capacity of song. It also strives to be a positive voice for the LGBT+ community in larger society and represent LGBT+ people in meaningful ways in order to elicit understanding and compassion from otherwise more hostile corners of that society. Founded in the fall of 2013 by Robert Stone, FMGMC has grown from a collection of guys who wanted to socialize and sing, to a major performance group in the upper Midwest. For most of that time, FMGMC has sung under the baton of Angel Lira, whose musicianship has inspired and strengthened the chorus. FMGMC recently represented North Dakota and western Minnesota in the world-renown David Geffen Hall at Lincoln Center in New York City to perform Tyler’s Suite, composed by Stephen Schwartz et al, with twelve other choirs under the direction of San Francisco Gay Men’s Chorus’ own Tim Seelig.
