We’ve had a very active winter term this year, riding high on the success of January’s Oscar-themed concert and working hard our spring repertoire, “Out of the Closet”.
So far, we have sung tidbits from this diverse and colourful show at the Kiwanis festival, at Guelph’s Pride flag-raising, at the Harcourt United Church’s affirming service, and as guests of our friends at WomEnchant. We are honoured and delighted to perform on these occasions, yes, but our main event “Out of the Closet”, the complete show, was the culmination of this term’s hard work!
We had two fabulous concerts – one at Faith Lutheran Church in Fergus, and one in our home base of Harcourt United Church in Guelph. We thank all our audience members, sponsors, and organizations who made donations to our silent auction fundraiser. It has been a wildly successful season!
We especially thank those chorus members who shared their coming out stories at our concerts. Hearing the varied stories of challenge, hardship, disrcrimination, humour, and finally a sense of community and acceptance that members found in the Rainbow Chorus, greatly enhanced our performance and moved our audience. Thank you for sharing!
If you liked what you saw and want to get involved – please come sing with us in our next term, beginning September 2016! After a few months off in the summer, we are excited to begin a new year and welcome new and returning members.
