Chad Michaels as Cher - San Francisco Gay Men's Chorus

The San Francisco Gay Men’s Chorus today announced they will open its 38th season with Crescendo Turns 10!

An annual fundraiser, the event features (fabulous) live and silent auctions, food, an open bar reception and will be held at the Ritz-Carlton. Crescendo Turns 10! takes place October 11, 2015.

“With nine years of wonderfully fun and successful Crescendo fundraising events behind us, the San Francisco Gay Men’s Chorus will launch our Season 38 with a spectacle of fun, frivolity and touching beauty,” writes Dennis Stradford, SFGMC Board Chairman. “With our new venue this year at the stunning Ritz-Carlton we are gratified to find we are 85% sold out already. The Board of Directors and I are most grateful to welcome back our longtime loyal donors plus so many new ones, and the many generous people who have provided such exquisite gifts for auction.”

All four SFGNC vocal ensembles — The Lollipop Guild, Vocal Minority, SWAG and The HomoPhonics — are scheduled to perform.

Founded in 1978, SFGMC was the first organization of its kind and is credited with starting the LGBT choral movement, galvanizing and changing the course of LGBT history.
