Portland Gay Men's Chorus Concert

Mark your calendar: 7pm Saturday, April 13th!  The Portland Gay Men's Chorus will be returning to Newman United Methodist Church for another evening filled with beautiful, inspiring music. This year's concert will be entitled 'Audacity to Hope.'

Inspired by the optimistic spirits of the likes of Malala Yousafsai, Rashon Nelson and Donte Robinson, the Wild Boar Soccer Club, and others who rose above the tide of societal discord, Our Audacity to Hope explores the accomplishments of those in our community who also succeed against seemingly insurmountable odds. We will weave stories inside a tapestry of beautiful and soul stirring music that will remind us of our shared humanity, uplift our spirits, and “affirm the worth of all people.”

This concert is a fundraiser for Hearts with A Mission. Hearts With A Mission serves homeless and at-risk-youth by providing shelter, educational support, mentoring and transition planning with a faith-based approach. Learn more here.
