Romance and Rhythm
LGCSF HISTORY CORNER - 1982
Our spring concert was called Romance and Rhythm, with the guest conductor Gary Miller of New York City Gay Men's Chorus. Then in June was the Pride Concert at the Civic Center Auditorium. In September was the first West Coast Choral Festival, a marathon 12-chorus concert event coordinated by us. Then all of the singers sang "Testament of Freedom" at the closing ceremonies off the first Gay Games. Our fall concert was called Harmonic Harvest and we were again guests of SFGMC in their Now Sing With Hearts Aglow (III). This was a year of change and growth for the chorus. In our first three years, we generally did more classical music than popular, and the chorus was wanting to do more popular music. Our director, Robin Kay, preferred to work in the classical repertoire, and consequently resigned as our director. Next week 1983.
