The Golden Gate Men's Chorus (GGMC) continues its 29th season under the direction of Music Director, Joseph Piazza with the summer concerts, Bohemian Rhapsody. We hope you will join the Golden Gate Men's Chorus as fellow Bohemiansthat isas lovers of art, music, and literature; as unconventional thinkers and doers, ascribing to pleasure; as people who have made our home in the San Francisco Bay Area, a place that celebrates all things Bohemian. We will present music with great poetryfrom the Italian Renaissance to the 19th century epic of Finland to the words of a great modernist from Japan. You will hear vocal jazz of the `50s made popular in the bohemian clubs of Greenwich Village. You will hear exotic melodies and unconventional harmonies rooted in the folk songs of the passionate Hungarians. You will find a familiar Broadway song of a carefree life, three spirited Irish folk songs of poor traveling vagabonds, lusty songs of the German hunt in the wooded forests of south central Europe, celebratory French drinking songs, and even the iconic 1974 coming-of-age song by Freddie Mercury, Bohemian Rhapsody.
Celebrate the musical excess in poetry, love, passions, yearnings, gallant deeds, and unconventional rhythms and melodies as we celebrate the summer season in this place that is truly at the end of the rainbow: a Bohemia all its own, our beloved home of San Francisco.
In the "Classical Voice" Jason Serinus says, "Quality is a given when it comes to the Golden Gate Men's Chorus. (The chorus) ... has such a high degree of musical proficiency among its members that the GGMC frequently tackles challenging repertoire that other community choruses tend to avoid." (5/11/09).
