By Charlotte Robinson, February 23, 2023

The Boston Gay Men’s Chorus will premiere “Born This Way” the choral theater adaptation of popular children’s book “A Peacock Among Pigeons” on March 11th & 12th at New England Conservatory’s Jordan Hall in Boston, MA. The Boston feel-good concert of the Spring will feature music from Broadway, Hollywood, the pop charts plus the world premiere of a stage adaptation of the award-winning book “A Peacock Among Pigeons” by composer John Bucchino. Reuben Reynolds BGMC Music Director stated, “The anthem ‘Born This Way’ by Lady Gaga reminds everybody—including LGBTQ people— that they’re perfect just the way they are. This concert is all about finding yourself, loving yourself & simply being yourself. We share that story in an incredibly fun & moving way with the world premiere of ‘A Peacock Among Pigeons.’” John Bucchino added, “This story is something that the world needs right now & I’m so proud to play a part in bringing it to the stage. A Peacock Among Pigeons is a story about finding your own way in the world in the most lovely, fantastic & whimsical way. With 200 voices, colorful costumes & a small orchestra, this show is going to be absolutely incredible.” The first half of “Born This Way” opens with “Let It Sing” with other songs exploring the theme of being true to yourself including the gay anthem “True Colors”. The second half will be the world premiere of “A Peacock Among Pigeons” featuring a full cast from the Chorus & an eight-piece orchestra. Last month BGMC released the Amazon Prime documentary "Music Triumphs Homophobia". LISTEN
