Yes, the Twin Cities Gay Men’s Chorus has again started up for the 2016-2017 season. It feels almost odd going back after the whole GALA experience.
But also good to go back.
The time away has been short, but full of reflection. I’m returning as the Basssecrion leader and as of right now I’m also returning to sing In the Chamber Singers.
This should keep me fairly busy musically, but not overtaxed– especially since I’m not currently doing band. I may try to add a bit of extra involvement by participating on the production committee.
This fall actually looks pretty good so far– we have a good core of returning members, we added one back from leave of absence, and also added two newbies from the audition process. This greatly excites me as I don’t think we’ve added a Bass since I auditioned in 2014.
The only drawback is that we are preparing the holiday concert(s) which means singing Xmas music in September.
Not my favorite thing to do.
But it looks to be a good season overal, with a spring collaboration with the Heartland Gay Men’s Chorus (Kansas City).
Naturally I’ll keep you all posted.
