Singing Out Las Cruces, a LGTBQ and Allies community chorus, presents their winter concert on Saturday, January 21, at 7 p.m. and Sunday, January 22, at 3 p.m. Peace Lutheran Church, 1701 E. Missouri, will host the “Moments in American LGBTQ History” event. Rich, moving, inspiring songs composed of that era will fill the program. During intermissions, treats are served and a silent auction fundraiser will be held. Tickets are $10 at the door.
The chorus is entering their sixth year of practice and performance and has congealed as a warm, supportive, extended family group striving to reach out through the power of music to entertain, heal, and inspire the community to respect and value the differences of all people.
Last July, the chorus was invited to perform at the International Gala Choruses Festival in Denver, Colorado. They sang a program of seven songs before an audience of 2000 people at the Ellie Caulkins Opera House.
All people who like to sing are welcome to join the chorus. There are no auditions: just bring your voice and love of music. Rehearsals will resume in February. For more information, see their website at singingoutlascruces.org or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
