The ‘Feminine Mystique’ mans up

Gay Men's Chorus of Charlotte and Common Woman Chorus pair up to bring a new twist to some old favorites

The Gay Men’s Chorus of Charlotte (GMCC), a group of talented local singers committed to bringing their audiences a message of “hope for the future, pride in ourselves and in each other as lesbian and gay people, and equality for all”, is femming up for a special production during March, International Women’s History month.

Taking notes from the respectable female singers, songwriters, and musicians who have used and continue to use their music to motivate social advancement and bring awareness to injustice, GMCC has organized a program to inspire and impress.

GMCC has asked Common Woman Chorus of Durham to combine forces with them, making this a truly unified observation of women’s history month. GMCC’s collaboration with Common Woman’s Chorus and focus on women’s songs and experiences is just one of many examples of their dedication to “support[ing] a diverse cross section of the community through its community outreach programs, which include benefit performances, complimentary concert tickets and coral education programs”.
