News release from Aventura Arts & Cultural Center:
AVENTURA – Seeking solutions to bullying, gay bashing, self-hatred, transphobia and violence at home and in the world, Miami Gay Men’s Chorus presents its vocal ensemble INSIGNIA performing New World Waking! on Saturday, April 28 at 7:30 p.m. at the Aventura Arts & Cultural Center.
In a call for compassion, the concert offers a source of hope and inspiration for all who believe in social justice. Inspired by an opportunity to play the piano on which John Lennon’s performed "Imagine," composer Steve Schalchlin has created a song cycle journey styled in pop, salsa, gospel and lowdown dirty blues.
The program also features a component in which diverse people share personal stories of how they survived bullying and oppression with the support of family, friends and the community.
The Miami Gay Men’s Chorus is an inclusive, community-based organization of gay men and gay-supporting people that inspires and changes lives through the power of music. With humor and heart, it proudly entertains its audiences while striving for artistic excellence.
With a repertoire ranging from the sublime to the ridiculous, INSIGNIA is comprised of singers who audition from within the Miami Gay Men’s Chorus.
The concert is presented as part of the Aventura Arts & Cultural Center’s Arts Access Program, which provides technical and marketing support to local community groups enabling them to develop and build their audiences.
Tickets are $15 and are available through the Aventura Arts & Cultural Center's box office at (877) 311-7469 or online at www.AventuraCenter.org.
