ANN ARBOR – Out Loud Chorus, Washtenaw County’s only LGBT performing arts group, will celebrate their 10th year together with choral selections representing the best of the past decade. The chorus will also debut “Welcome Home,” a song recently commissioned by Out Loud.
There are two opportunities to enjoy this event.
On Friday, June 3, the chorus will perform at 8 p.m. in the Towsley Auditorium in the Morris Lawrence Bldg. at Washtenaw Community College. On Saturday, June 4, Out Loud will be at Temple Beth Emeth/St. Clare’s Episcopal Church at 2309 Packard St. at 7:30 p.m.
According to the chorus’ web site, Out Loud is a mixed chorus for the lesbian, bisexual, gay, transgendered community, yet is open to all. “Out Loud provides continuing musical education and performance experience as well as a social outlet for persons interested in choral music and its production….In addition, the chorus seeks to educate the general public about choral music and, through performances, to reduce bigotry and discrimination against our community.”
Karen Elliott, the choir’s marketing chair, said, “The choir is like a family to everybody. We all care about each other and we love to sing and perform. So we come together for socialization and to improve our singing ability.”
The Out Loud Chorus is under the direction of John More.
Tickets are $10 in advance or $12 at the door and can be purchased in advance from chorus members, online at www.aaoutloud.org, or at Common Language bookstore. For more information call 734-973-6084 or email email@example.com.
