I’m packing my bag and ready to go for my early departure to Prague in the Czech Republic. I’ll be singing with the London Gay Men’s Chorus at the Fifth Pride Celebration with a concert in the National Concert Hall, The British Embassy, some flash mob sings around the city, and on the Pride Parade.

Our sense of responsibility was immediately felt when we were greeted by a standing ovation for our tour kick-off concert at the Trinity Cathedral in downtown Miami the night before our departure for Havana.

During rehearsal for our performance at the Suzanne Dellal Center in Tel Aviv on our last night in Israel, our first look at the space was disappointing, to say the least: Only 40 chairs had been set up for audience members and our stage was tucked away in a corner of the Dellal Center’s vast […]

Brilliant Fundraising: The $60K Chorus Auction

Posted on: June 23rd, 2015 by Jacob Levine GALA Articles No Comments

“Alright,” the auctioneer boomed. “Moving on to Lot #17: Doggie Playdate on the Hudson River.” I started giggling. Now I’ve been to plenty of auction fundraisers before, but never in my life have I seen anything like a doggie playdate included in the lots. My amusement quickly turned to fascination, and then appreciation. I was becoming more and more impressed by this […]
