The Boston Gay Men’s Chorus (BGMC) will perform “Born This Way” on March 14th & 15th at Jordan Hall in Boston, MA. The concert will feature 200 voices, vibrant costumes, an original score from Broadway composer John Bucchino & a reading of the award-winning children’s book A Peacock Among Pigeons by Boston City Councilor Michelle Wu. Reuben M. Reynolds III BGMC Music Director stated, “The anthem ‘Born this Way’ by Lady Gaga reminds everybody that they are perfect just the way they are. This concert is all about finding yourself & becoming the person you’re meant to be. We share that story in an incredibly fun & moving way with the world premiere of A Peacock Among Pigeons.” The first half of “Born This Way” opens with “Let It Sing” from the musical Violent which is about taking care of yourself. Other songs from the first half include “Reflection” from the Disney movie Mulan, “I’m Still Queer,” which is a spoof of “I’m Still Here,” from Sondheim’s Follies, “A Message From The Gay Community,” which warns parents that LGBTQ people are trying to convert their children (to be more affirming & accepting of all people) & Taylor Swift’s “You Need To Calm Down.” The second half will be the world premiere of A Peacock Among Pigeons featuring a full cast from the Chorus & an eight-piece orchestra. It will open with Wu reading A Peacock Among Pigeons to share the story with the audience before the Chorus performs Bucchino’s choral stage adaptation. “Craig Coogan BGMC Executive Director concluded, “Born This Way will be Boston’s feel-good concert of the Spring!”
