Seattle Men’s Chorus (SMC) takes the stage at McCaw Hall with Born this Way on April 1, 2017 at 8 p.m. and April 2, 2017 at 2 p.m. in an inspiring and activist showcase of solidarity toward all LGBTQ youth and individuals. In this heated political climate, with anti-trans* legislation proliferating on a regular basis, Artistic Director Paul Caldwell is bringing forth a program that celebrates the unique identities of all of us. His artistic inspiration for the concert comes from Lady Gaga’s Born This Way lyrics: “There’s nothing wrong with loving who you are!” Singers and audience members rejoice in the stories, challenges, and dreams of a diverse generation of LGBTQ youth.
This innovative multimedia concert features a world premiere composition from Latina transgender composer, Mari Esabel Valverde, as well as pop favorites from Gaga, Pink, Cyndi Lauper, and Rufus Wainwright. Through Seattle Men’s Chorus’ free Youth Ticket Outreach Program, hundreds of students and youth from throughout the Northwest community will be in the audience to celebrate our own diversity.
