The BGMC's spring concert thinks "outside the box," featuring music by rebels, nonconformists, iconoclasts, and wiseguys from outside the mainstream. The Chorus pays tribute to closeted innovators from the mid 20th century including radical theater composer Marc Blitzstein and jazz great Billy Strayhorn (Take the A Train, Lush Life). Music of our time includes a work for chorus and soprano by acclaimed music theater composer Ricky Ian Gordon. The Chorus interprets pop songs by openly gay singer/songwriters including Melissa Etheridge (Come to My Window), kd lang (yes the boys are singing Big Boned Gal), and Rufus Wainwright. Wainwright is one of the most original pop stars of our time and the Chorus will sing three of his hits: Oh What A World, Vibrate and Beautiful Child. A politically incorrect and hysterical finale is inspired by the bad boys of Broadway, Mel Brooks and Monty Python. Provocative and entertaining, Outside the Box bridges classical, music theater and pop styles with uncommon imagination.
