Gay Men's Chorus returns to Rehoboth June 27 The Gay Men's Chorus of Washington, D.C., will be per- forming in a benefit concert to raise money for the Sussex Coun- ty AIDS Committee (SCAC), a community-based AIDS service organization headquartered in Re- hoboth Beach. The concert will be at 7:30 p.m, Saturday, June 27, at the Rehoboth Beach Convention Center. Tickets for the concert are $15 and will be available at the door at 6:30 p.m., the day of the concert. Telephone orders for tickets can also be placed by call- ing the SCAC office at 644-1090. Visa and MasterCard are accept- ed. This concert marks the second time that the chorus has appeared in the Delaware resort area, rais- ing money for charity. The first concert, held in June 1995, fea- tured the chorus and several smaller ensembles made up of chorus members. The concert planned for June 27 will include ensemble pieces, including selec- tions by "A Few Good Men," the chorus' dance group, and "Po- tomac Fever." There will also be a special guest appearance by "Quintessential," an ensemble of women singers who also per- formed here in 1995. This sum- mer's concert, however, will fo- cus more on the chorus in its en- tirety. The chorus will perform a variety of works, including "Free," a pop song about a spiritu- al quest, and choruses from the operetta, "Die Fledermaus." These selections are featured in "Singing Free," a CD recording by the Gay Men's Chorus. The group will also perform "Shenen- doah"; "Sky Dances," popularized by vocalist Holly Near; and many other songs. There will also be some Ziegfeld beauties who will perform a medley of songs from Stephen Sondheim's "Follies." Under the direction of James Holioway, the 150-voice chorus has earned a reputation for its mu- sicality. Over the years, the Gay Men's Chorus has performed at the Kennedy Center, the National Theatre, the Warner Theatre, Con- stitution Hall, the Lincoln Theatre and Lisner Auditorium on the George Washington University campus, along with a number of other venues in and around Wash- ington, D.C. The chorus also just completed a Scandinavian tour, performing in the capital cities of Copenhagen, Oslo and Stock- holm. It was the first American gay chorus to perform in these countries. The Gay Men's Chorus of Washington, D.C., has won a number of awards, including the Mayor's Arts Award for artistic excellence in 1989 and the Wash- ingto n Area Music Association's WAMMIE Award in 1995 for outstanding gospel/inspirational performance. In January 1997, the group performed at "An American Journey," one of the presidential inaugural activities.
