CHARIS-The St. Louis Women's Chorus invites you to enjoy a musical journey in their Spring concert, COMING OUT!. The concert will feature a wide variety of musical styles with some songs specially written for gay and lesbian choruses that embody different aspects of the coming out experience. Selections on the concert program include, “Natural Woman,” “One Fine Day,” “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell,” and “If You Were Gay,” from the musical Avenue Q. “There will be something that resonates with everyone who attends this concert. We’ll all recognize the painful, frightening, empowering, and even humorous parts of our own coming out experiences,” said Artistic Director Kourtney Strade.
“The coming out theme is a natural choice for CHARIS as the chorus is entering its 16th season. Sixteen is the traditional age for young women to have ‘coming out’ parties and make their debut into society,” said longtime CHARIS member Sharon Spurlock. “We’re 16, and although we certainly won’t be wearing ball gowns and elbow-length gloves at the concert, we will be reintroducing ourselves to the St. Louis community,” Spurlock added, noting that the “Coming Out!” concert will be the chorus’ debut under their new artistic director.
The concert will be on Friday and Saturday nights, May 1st and 2nd, at 7:30 p.m. at the Missouri History Museum.
Regular tickets are $15 in advance or $18 at the door. Premium seats (front, center in rows 2-5) are $20. Please visit this link to purchase tickets online. If you have any questions, call 314-664-9340. If you would like more general information about CHARIS, visit www.charischorus.org.
