Sing Out Bristol presents ‘Around the World with 80 Gays!’

Sing Out Bristol, the South West’s premier LGBT choir invite you to join them for an evening of choral singing including classical, modern, musical theatre, contemporary and world music from a journey around the globe.

Following on the back of a first and very well received international performance in Dublin in June 2014, in front of 80 other choirs and a world-wide online audience, as well as an appearance on local TV channel, Made in Bristol, Sing Out Bristol is putting the finishing touches to what is proving to be yet another big step up from their previous annual concerts.

Around the World with 80 Gays! is being held on Saturday 18th April at The Anson Rooms, University of Bristol’s Student Union, in Clifton, Bristol from 7.30pm. Tickets are available online on the Sing Out Bristol Website.

Sing Out Bristol is the leading LGBT choir in the south west of England and has put together a concert based around the theme of travel and international music. Some of the music was drawn from other LGBT choirs at the Various Voices festival in Dublin last year. Other songs are ones which the Musical Director team and Performance team have found or ones which choir members have suggested. The evening will take the audience on a journey around the world visiting different musical styles, genres and traditions as well as a variety of places and languages. As audiences have now come to expect, there will be some fun, some emotional musical, some serious and some not so serious moments. There are also a few unexpected surprises which have been built in, to make the whole evening a complete performance to remember.

This promises to be the choir’s biggest and best concert to date after a successful first seven years, going from a small choir meeting in members’ front rooms to needing a large hall in which to rehearse each week and requests from across Europe to join in various festivals, concerts and competitions. In 2014 alone the choir performed about a dozen times with requests for a further 20 performances.
