Long Island Gay Men’s Chorus announces ‘Treasured Memories’ concert

The Long Island Gay Men’s Chorus will perform a winter concert series, entitled “Treasured Memories.”

The annual holiday performances are scheduled for Friday, Dec. 15 at the Cathedral of the Incarnation, 50 Cathedral Ave. in Garden City, and Saturday, Dec. 16 at the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship at Stony Brook, 380 Nicolls Road in Stony Brook.

Showtime is 8 p.m. Tickets are $25 at the door and also available online at ligmc.org.

“We are proud to present our 2017 holiday concert, ‘Treasured Memories,’ a joyful blend of seasonal favorites both old and new,” Tony Mazza, a member of the LIGMC Board of Directors, said. “The holiday concerts are always a delightful blend of heartwarming and entertaining selections, and this year’s offering is no exception.”

Seasoned music educator and theatrical music director Jeanette Barsi Cooper, who serves as LIGMC’s artistic director and accompanist, collaborated with Mazza to prepare the 2017 program.

“We compared notes and found we had much in common,” she said. “We wanted to have a very familiar selection of songs, both familiar to the chorus and familiar to the audience. My barometer was when I looked at the song and thought, ‘Oh, I love that song,’ I added it to the list.”

Most recently, LIGMC staged a “Hurray for Hollywood” movie-themed cabaret concert at the Sayville VFW on Nov. 11. The group also sang at the opening-night gathering hosted by the Long Island Gay and Lesbian Film Festival in Huntington.
