Well folks, these are busy days as usual! The Chorus is in final preparation for our upcoming Pride concert. The show is called Tunes from Tales and is based upon the Tales of the City novels by Armistead Maupin. Mister Maupin is a well known gay author who also wrote The Night Whisperer which was made into a movie with Robin Williams and Toni Colette.

We will be joined for the shows by Armistead Maupin himself who will narrate specific parts of his novels between the music. The show was conceived by the Seattle Men's Chorus and tells the story of Michael Tolliver, a gay man who moves to San Francisco and lives there through the tumultuous 70s and 80s. The music is a mix of original pieces and arrangements of popular music.

Overall, the show is both hilarious and often very deeply touching. The Chorus already sounds great, an it is so exciting to perform with a literary legend and gay icon like Mr. Maupin. As always, I encourage that any of you in the area get some tickets and attend the show. Drop me a line if you have any questions about the show, and as always, you can order tickets at the North Coast Men's Chorus Website

I wish I could go! I can't believe I'm missing Pride all together this year.

Say hi to Jim & Lyn for me if you see them!
