The Columbus Gay Men’s Chorus is holding auditions for its “Home and Country” concert.

COLUMBUS, December 19, 2011 — The Columbus Gay Men’s Chorus believes in opening minds and hearts through the power of music. We fully embrace the opportunity to be LGBT ambassadors to the central Ohio community and to live our mission of “Voices Raised, Lives Changed.”

CGMC presents artistic and entertaining programs that continue to receive critical acclaim. We have recently partnered with other arts organizations such as the Columbus Children’s Choir, Columbus Jazz Arts Group, and Pro Musica Chamber Orchestra. Our “Home and Country” concert is a partnership with the OSU Men’s Glee Club and will celebrate the 200th Birthday of Columbus with songs related to Columbus and Ohio. Also included will be a special medley of Big-10 fight songs, as well as songs by American composers and songs that represent American themes.

Voice placement auditions are held during the first two rehearsals of each concert cycle. For our Home and Country concert, auditions will be held on Monday, January 2, 2012 (please arrive at 6:00 pm) and Sunday, January 8, 2012 (please arrive at 5:30 pm) at the Ohio Theatre/Galbreath Pavilion, Room 1.
