Our spring concert was called Our Time and Place and featured the music of Scott Joplin. Then we performed at the Cable Car Awards show. This awards show was sort of like a gay version of the Academy Awards. The awards were given to individuals, events, organizations, athletes, disc jockeys, etc.
Next in June was the Pride Concert at Davies Symphony Hall which was the first major production we handled alone. Then we sang for Jerry Lewis' Muscular Dystrophy Telethon.
Our fall concert was called Sing! Rhythm of Life and we ended the year as guests of SFGMC in their Holiday show Now Sing with Hearts Aglow.
joined the Lesbian/Gay Chorus of San Francisco in August of 1984, after seeing them sing in the Pride Concert the previous June and their director, Matt O'Grady, announced that if anyone in the audience wanted to join the chorus that auditions would be coming up so he joined. During his time in the chorus he has always sang in the bass section. He has served as Music Librarian, on the Production Committee, the Artistic Advisory Committee, as a bass section leader, as the GALA liaison and currently as chorus historian. He is glad to create this blog for the chorus to get the history out to anyone who looks at our website.
