Seattle Men’s Chorus Comes Together, Right Now

Seattle Mens Chorus

Seattle Mens Chorus

At a time when marriage equality is top of mind for Washington voters, Seattle Men’s Chorus is proud to share, through song, The Beatles’ powerful messages of peace, love, and understanding. With their all-Beatles Spring concert, Come Together, the nation’s largest gay men’s chorus (250 men) pays tribute to the Fab Four by belting out over two dozen faithfully arranged songs from the best-selling band in history.

The all-Beatles concert has been in the works for almost five years, and with Washington the 7th state to legalize gay marriage (or marriage equality, if you prefer) the timing for this message of love is near perfect.   You’ll hear your favorites, including “Because,” “Imagine,” “Eleanor Rigby,” “Yellow Submarine,” “Let it Be,” “Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds,” and the list goes on. Seattle Men’s Chorus will recreate this collection of favorite Lennon and McCartney tunes in exactly the same style as the originals, following the same musical terrain, from mop-top hair and skinny ties to the psychedelic and colorful costumes including: mustaches, inscrutable uniforms, peace glasses, and batik shirts. It’s a tripping evening back in time.

With a mission to entertain, enlighten, unify and heal our audience and members, using the power of words and music to recognize the value of gay and straight people and their relationships, the Seattle Men’s Chorus has been entertaining the Seattle area since 1979.  The Come Together concert looks to continue the tradition.

Go.  See.  Listen.  Love.
