The Dayton Gay Men’s Chorus is pleased to once again be filling the stage at Dayton’s Victoria Theatre for their June 1st concert, “Turn it UP!”, which will celebrate the DGMC’s ten year anniversary of choral performance in the Greater Miami Valley.
This year’s concert features audience and chorus favorites from the past ten years, as well as new compositions, which have been specifically commissioned for Gay Men’s Choruses across the country.
DGMC Artistic Director, Jason Coatney-Schuler, has weaved a thought-provoking historical tapestry, which takes the audience on a journey from the chorus’s appearance on the stairs of the Schuster Center, when it opened its doors ten years ago, into the world of Americana, Broadway, Cole Porter, Queen, Village People, and ABBA.
“Turn it UP!” completes the DGMC’s 2012-2013 season, “TEN: Then and Now”, and promises to entertain, inspire, and “rock” the audience of all generations. Board President David Moyer applauds the chorus and its director for celebrating not only their past success, but also projecting a compelling future for the DGMC. “Jason continues to lead the chorus to new levels of choral excellence. No emotion will be left untouched for this special concert, as the chorus soothes the soul, then rocks the house!” This will also be Dayton’s first chance to “glimpse” into what the DGMC has in store for their 2013-2014 season, including the commission of a world premiere choral work.
