Connecticut Gay Men’s Chorus Offers ‘Double Treat’ to Mark Pride Month

OLD SAYBROOK — The Connecticut Gay Men’s Chorus is busy crossing the pond to celebrate the start of Pride Month with a double treat.

On Sundays at 3pm and 7pm at the Katharine Hepburn Cultural Arts Center in Old Saybrook, the choir will perform ‘The British Are Coming!’, a delightful tribute to all things English, from Elton to Freddie, Posh to Petula and tons of great tunes in between.

According to the choir’s artistic director, Greg McMahan, the most influential artists and sounds in pop music from the past five decades will be featured. “These are the songs that generations of LGBT people around the world have danced to, cried and walked out to among many other activities…”

Come travel with these talented guys who shine a light on the Beatles’ 1960s British invasion, the glamorous and New Wave years of the 1970s and 1980s, the Spice Girls sensation of the 1990s, with a finale featuring the newcomers of the 2000s.

You won’t need to pack your bags or renew your passport for this special trip to England thanks to your tour manager Greg McMahan and his talented friends.
