We Sing Out - Sunday April 19, 4pm

The River City Mixed Chorus presents "We Sing Out," a benefit concert for the Lincoln community.  The performance will be at 4:00pm Sunday, April 19, at Saint Paul United Methodist Church (1144 M Street in Lincoln).  A free-will donation will be taken at the concert with all proceeds goiing to Outlinc, a nonprofit organization dedicated to serving and advancing LGBT community in Lincoln.

 

Musical selections include "Bridge Over Troubled Water" (Simon & Garfunkel), "I Sing Out" (Mark Hayes), and "Make Them Hear You" (from the musical Ragtime).  Additional pieces, mainly from Broadway and popular collections, were specifically selected for their message of inclusion, hope, and empowerment.

 

“Our mission is to create exceptional musical experiences to support diversity, inspire change and empower communities,” said Artistic Director Dr. A. Barron Breland. “We realize that our community reaches beyond Omaha, where the majority of our singers live. It includes Lincoln, the state of Nebraska and the entire United States. We look forward to expanding the reach of our message of inclusion and acceptance to the Lincoln community.”

C'mon, Get Happy! - Saturday June 27th, 7:05pm

It's our very first concert at the Holland Center!  Come join us for a concert celebrating the golden age of Broadway and popular songwriters like Berlin, Gershwin, and Porter.

 

Along with Harold Arlen's concert title piece, musical selections include "The Rhythm of Life" from Sweet Charity, "The Nearness of You" by Hoagy Carmichael, and "Anything Goes" from the Cole Porter musical of the same name.  Additional pieces from Broadway and popular collections were specifically selected for their messages of inclusion, hope, and empowerment.

 

"The River City Mixed Chorus is a long-established fixture in the local LGBT community," said Artistic Director Dr. A. Barron Breland.  "We are especially excited to bring Omaha's favorite choir to Omaha's premier concert venue, the Holland Performing Arts Center.  It will be a thrill for our record-number of singers and will help introduce us - and our message of inclusion and acceptance - to a broader audience."

 

This will be a one-night-only performance on Saturday, June 27th, 2015 at 7:05pm.  Tickets are available through Ticket Omaha by clicking here
