It was standing room only as the Eugene Gay Men’s Chorus ‘Came Out for the Holidays’ at Trinity United Methodist Church in our premiere concert. We were delighted to have an audience, even more so one that was ready to have as much fun as the choristers were on stage.
Under the direction of Artistic Director Evan Miles and the accompaniment of Grant Mack, the 20 member chorus brought to life holidays songs from many traditions around the globe, sharing the gift of community and holiday cheer to all who were there.
Crowd estimates, performed by novices, claim there to have been between 220 and 270 delighted participants with sing alongs, spectacular choreography, and holiday cheer in their ears.
There are three groups we’d like to thank for the evening’s wonder:
- You, our audience and supporters for coming out!
- The volunteers that helped deck the hall, baked tasty cookies of cheer, and help sell tickets and welcome our attendees!
- To each of you who helped get us here through your financial generosity, invitations to perform, and excitement for a beautiful community.
Additionally, we’d like to thank our fine host, Trinity United Methodist Church, and the many shout outs we received in the local press leading up to the event (The Registered Guard, Eugene Weekly, KVAL, and many more!).
EGMC will be posting information related to their schedule in the new year shortly. Thank you so much for your interest and support!
