There is nothing more over the top than the wedding of two fabulous gay men. That is, until you add family, former lovers, jilted ex-girlfriends, a Baptist minister, and murder! Stephan and Brad are the perfect grooms and after months of planning, their big day has finally arrived – and so has Bruce, former go-go boy and one of Brad’s one night stands, and Misty Waters, the perpetual maid of honor and Stephan’s high school sweetheart. Before the ceremony can be performed by the Reverend  Jimmy Joe Watkins, Brad’s ever-loving mom, Ethel, needs to proudly take her place beside her son as he vows to love his husband “until death do us part”. There will be more laughs than you can throw a bouquet at until someone ends up dead and it’s up to you to help solve the murder. You’re invited to the wedding and reception, so come dressed as a guest or really get into the fun and dig your old bridesmaid dress out of the closet and come as part of the wedding party.

Join the North Coast Men’s Chorus for our first big event of Season 31! Murder is afoot, and our intrepid detective is ready to find the clues and solve the case, but only with your help! Enjoy a fun evening of dining and detective work as you try to learn the answer to that age old question: “Whodunit?”

NCMC Community Partner for the 42nd Cleveland International Film Festival

NCMC Community Partner for the 42nd Cleveland International Film Festival

42nd Cleveland International Film Festival

We are pleased be a Community Partner at the 42nd Cleveland International Film Festival. This year we are sponsoring the film A Moment In the Reeds. Show dates are Friday, April 6 at 9:05 PM and Saturday, April 7 at 11:35 AM at Tower City Cinemas.

On holiday from his studies in Paris, Leevi returns to his family’s summer cottage in Finland to help his father, Jouko, with renovations. Jouko is a bitter man, unreconciled to his wife’s death and to his son’s sexuality. Hired worker Tareq, a Syrian refugee trying to forge a new life, also arrives. Jouko is suddenly called back to the city for business. Distrustful of foreigners he leaves Leevi to supervise, but things take an unexpected turn. A MOMENT IN THE REEDS unfolds like a summer flower. It drifts placidly along on a current of natural beauty and eroticism. As Leevi and Tareq share their hopes and their bodies, the film lets us intimately observe every lovely and telling moment. But Jouko may return at any time. If he discovers their relationship, his anger may shatter their sudden happiness. A MOMENT IN THE REEDS artfully reveals the clash of cultures and dreams that transpire during this summer idyll, one that will alter their lives forever. (In English and Finnish with subtitles) -C.R.

As a Community Partner, the North Coast Men’s Chorus is able to offer our members and patrons $2.00 off each ticket purchased for any movie or short subject being shown during the duration of the Film Festival.

NCMC Attends GALA Festival 2016 in Denver

Now that NCMC’s June concerts are over, you may be wondering what the guys are doing with all their free time this summer? Well, for 58 of our singers and our artistic staff, we are making the trip to Denver, Colorado to participate in the 10th Gay and Lesbian Association of Choruses (GALA Choruses) Festival from July 2 – 6. Held every 4 years, GALA Festival brings together LGBTQA choruses from all over the world to share our music and learn from one another.

The 2016 festival returns to the Denver Performing Arts Complex for 5 days of performances by over 200 choruses and ensembles totaling more than 6500 singers!  Choruses range in size from large groups like San Francisco, Seattle, and New York with several hundred members each, to groups like NCMC with less than 100, down to small groups with less than a dozen singers.  Along with groups from the United Kingdom, Germany, and France, this year features the first Chinese chorus attendee, the Beijing Queer Chorus.  There is also a small group, Mano a Mano from Cuba that has done concerts with the Gay Men’s Chorus of Los Angeles recently, and the PFLAG Juneau Pride Chorus, made up of over a dozen PFLAG moms from Alaska!  There will also be 7 youth choruses in attendance, a category that has been growing over the past decade.  To see more detail on attendees and firsts, check out this great summary from Minnesota’s One Voice chorus.

NCMC will be performing a 30 minute set of music mostly drawn from our recent “Workin’ It!” concerts. Based on the audience response in Cleveland, we are sure that the GALA attendees will love us! When we are not performing, we will be taking in the performances of as many other groups as possible. GALA Festivals are a fertile grounds for discovering new songs and even entire show concepts, as we did with “Von Trapped!” a few years ago.

The entire North Coast Men’s Chorus will perform on Monday, July 4 from 12:00 to 2:30 in the Buell Theatre with 4 other choruses. Learn more about purchasing tickets at the GALA Choruses website.

Watch a live streaming concert broadcast: You can experience some of what our singers will experience from your computer in the comfort of your home or office. GALA will be broadcasting a number of concerts live over the internet this year. These concerts include morning coffee concerts, longer themed performances by some of the larger choruses, and blockbuster evening concerts featuring fun music on different themes. You can see the schedule of live streaming broadcasts at the GALA website.

Follow NCMC’s social media: We will be posting updates and photos regularly on NCMC’s Facebook and Twitter accounts @ncmchorus throughout the Festival.
