Atlanta’s LGBT music lovers should have plenty to keep them busy. OurSong – the Atlanta area’s only mixed gay and lesbian chorus – also has its annual holiday production, “The World Sings: Songs of Wonder and Hope,” Dec. 3-4 at Oakhurst Baptist Church. Board President Jerry Garrison has been with both the Atlanta Gay Men’s Chorus and OurSong (now for three years) and feels there is room and a need for both in the community.
“I love the camaraderie of working with men and women,” he says.
OurSong performs throughout the year, including a popular cabaret in the summer, but the holiday show is it’s best attended event. The musical selections here will celebrate finding home (“Betelehemu”), mother (“Lo How a Rose/The Rose”), peace (“Stars I Shall Find,” “Ose Shalom”) and children and gifts (“Some Children See Him,” “Angels We Have Heard on High”), as well as many more selections. He says the chosen numbers have a great international feel. A reception will follow each night’s show, says Garrison.
