Atlanta Gay Men's Chorus

It’s just not the holidays without music to put you in the festive spirit. Atlanta’s gay and lesbian choruses are poised to host their annual holiday concerts with inclusive messages of peace and hope.

The Atlanta Gay Men’s Chorus returns to the Cathedral of Saint Philip for its annual holiday concert, this year called “And on Earth, Peace.” The concerts are set for Dec. 7-8, including the traditional ice cream social after the 2 p.m. show on Dec. 8. The chorus also offers a preview show Dec. 1 at Red Clay Theatre in Duluth.

Kevin Robinson, artistic director for AGMC, said this year’s theme of peace goes hand-in-hand with the season.

Atlanta Gay Men’s Chorus salutes equality struggles

The Atlanta Gay Men’s Chorus is preparing to present “Red, White & You,” a new “mission driven” concert devoted to equality and the struggle for human rights — but not before first having a little fun at the annual Big Wig party.

The party, which this year features a fairytale theme of “Once Upon a Wig,” is set for June 2 at the former Fox Sports Grill location at Atlantic Station. Wigs are encouraged — the bigger and more elaborate, the better — with a best-wig contest as part of the festivities.

Tickets are $30 in advance or $35 at the door, with those not wearing wigs paying $40. DJ Todd Skelton spins.
