Events / Shining Jazzy Chorus Anniversary Concert
Founded in 2008, the Shining Jazzy Chorus is now the largest and the only public performing LGBT choir in mainland China, and the first GALA* member in Asia.
With a wide ranging repertoire from classical music to folk, jazz and pop, the Chorus’s aim is to challenge society’s preconceptions of the stereotypical image of a gay person, while providing a social network for its members and audience.
For the upcoming 4th anniversary concert, expect to indulge in not only traditional choral music, but also specially re-composed modern gay anthems in both English and Chinese, by artists such as Cyndi Lauper and Lady Gaga.
The Shining Jazzy Chorus will be accepting donations on the day of the concert, with the intention of promoting its own Chorus development programme, as well as supporting BGLAD** with future cross-cultural LGBT activities.
