Heartland Men's Chorus

On June 28, 1969, New York City police raided the Stonewall Inn, a small gay bar in Greenwich Village. While not an uncommon occurrence, this time was different . . . the community fought back. The Stonewall Riots are widely seen as one of the most pivotal moments in LGBTQ history. In collaboration with the New York City Gay Men’s Chorus and the Gay Men’s Chorus of Los Angeles, HMC presents, Stonewall 50, a new work that commemorates the 50th Anniversary of the beginning of the Gay Rights movement. Join us as we celebrate the vast legacy and worldwide revolution that rose from those six tumultuous days in June as we sing for our lives and the lives of others, every day.
Heartland Men’s Chorus provides excellence in performance while advancing men’s choral music, building community, and reaching out to diverse audiences. The members of HMC have joined together for the purpose of making music as a not-for-profit, volunteer chorus of gay and gay-sensitive people who are making a positive cultural contribution to the entire community.
HMC performs a varied repertoire of music, including jazz, Broadway, popular and classical works. In recent years, the Chorus has become known for its musical documentary format which uses music, narration and multi-media to illustrate social issues.
The Chorus has performed nationally and internationally but places particular importance on performing in smaller communities throughout the Heartland.
Assisted Listening devices will be available for all performances.
