The tenth season of the Miami Gay Mens Chorusis coming to a close this weekend, and to commemorate the milestone, the organizers are doing something a little special. Tonight and tomorrow, MGMC presents Look: Back, Inward, and Forward, a collection of their favorite music from shows gone by. The show includes songs by ABBA, Elton John, and Gloria Estefan (God forbid a Miami chorus not include Gloria!), performed in four-part harmony as the chorus boys dance and throw in a little dramatic interpretation. Toss in some sparkly costumes, jazz hands, and big bleached-teeth smiles, and its a show youll never forget. Various chorus members will step off the risers for solos now and then, so make sure to clap extra loud for them.
But its not just songs from yesteryear; theyre also performing a new series called "Through a Glass, Darkly", which tells stories of people struggling with crystal meth addiction. More like the ancient Greek version of chorus, you know?
