The DGMC’s annual Benefit Musicale directly support the DGMC and its mission to sustain choral excellence and promote a gay affirming presence in the Greater Miami Valley. This year’s proceeds will directly enable the chorus to stage an original oratorio titled “I am Harvey Milk” (www.IamHarveyMilk.com). This work, co-commissioned by the chorus and written by Tony Award nominated composer Andrew Lippa, depicts the life of one of the nation’s greatest icons in social equality.
The chorus’s goal is to exceed $18,000 in revenue from this year’s benefit, enabling them to be joined on stage at the Victoria Theatre by members of the Dayton Philharmonic Orchestra. Please join them, Saturday, March 15, 2014 for this extraordinary fundraiser! 70’s attire is ENCOURAGED but not required.
