The Port City Men’s Chorus are making a joyful noise for the holiday season and doing it in a series of locales sure to spread the holiday cheer. According to their website, the volunteer community chorus was organized “to provide the opportunity for a fellowship of gay and gay-friendly men to build a community spirit by singing together” and “seeks to provide members with rewarding musical experiences, to promote social exchange within a group of men with a common purpose, and to reflect positive aspects of ourselves to our audience and the general community.”
Their series of holiday shows includes seasonal holiday favorites like “Rocking Around The Christmas Tree,” “Mele Kalikimaka,” and “You’re A Mean One, Mister Grinch,” “Silent Night,” “O Holy Night,” “Frosty the Snowman,” “Let It Snow” a traditional Latin number and Ukrainian bell carol, among others.
The first show is Saturday, Dec. 6, at 5:30 p.m. at Berhnheim Hall in the Ben May Main Branch of the Mobile Public Library.
The second is Sunday, Dec. 7, at 3 p.m. at Cornerstone Metropolitan Community Church, 1007 Government St.
Entrance to each is $15.
A silent auction begins a half-hour before each show that includes homemade throws, art pieces and unique memorabilia including promotional items from NBC’s live Dec. 4 performance of “Peter Pan.” All proceeds go toward the chorus’ trip to Denver in 2016.
