    San Francisco Gay Men’s Chorus Holiday Spectacular

    The Castro Theatre’s marquee declared all three shows on Sunday evening, December 24, 2023, to be “Sold Out” and the long lines on the sidewalk out front that Christmas Eve night were clear indications it was accurate.

    Attending the 5 pm, 7 pm, or 9 pm show is a big decision for Castro neighbors and friends from elsewhere who often travel miles for this longstanding community tradition that began 35 years ago. The December 4th issue of the San Francisco Bay Times devoted its cover to announcing the 25th Anniversary show and included articles and photos tracing the event’s history back to its launch in 1990:

    San Francisco Gay Men’s Chorus (SFGMC) Artistic Director and Conductor Jake Stensberg led the Chorus in a series of performances last month, culminating with the December 24 shows. Members of the San Francisco Bay Times team maintained their track record of attending the 9 pm final performance. The finely tuned program included a combination of traditional songs as well as ones tailored for the occasion and sung with passion, joy, and the humor SFGMC is known for. Congratulations to all on yet another memorable round of holiday performances plus representation of our diverse community.
