The Ottawa Gay Men’s Chorus is thrilled with the attendance at its first in-person concert in over two years. Not only were we able to finally sing in-person, but we also had St. John the Evangelist Anglican Church at near capacity. We were overwhelmed by the support and warm words from our friends, family, and guests.
Our holiday concert, A Winter Faerie, featured a multilingual program. It included a beautiful piece in Swedish (Jul, jul, strålande Jul) — and contemporary pieces as well as traditional songs that emphasized being connected, surrounded by family, friends, and loved ones. Something we all needed after being socially distant for so long.
If you would like to join the Chorus, we will have open rehearsals in January on Wednesdays from 7:00 pm to 9:30 pm at St John the Evangelist Anglican Church. We look forward to meeting new choristers as we prepare a new repertoire for our spring concert: CGOGMC Goes to the Movies!
