Pull out your most outrageous glasses, your craziest hats & costumes, and your biggest boas for two concerts that will assuredly sell out. The Rochester Gay Men’s Chorus will be honoring gay icon and legendary singer, songwriter, pianist, and composer—Sir Elton Hercules John. Elton John has sold more than 300 million records and he is one of the world’s best-selling music artists.
Come enjoy an evening that you can sing along with and reminisce about where you were and the memories you hold dear to your favorite Elton hits. We guess there isn’t ONE song that will increase your CIRCLE OF LIFE until we perform THE LAST SONG so YOU CAN FEEL THE LOVE TONIGHT. We will do our best to perform YOUR SONG and give it a PHILADELPHIA FREEDOM as it propels like a ROCKET MAN into your heart. So please don’t say GOODBYE YELLOW BRICK ROAD and miss this opportunity to proudly proclaim THE BITCH IS BACK as you get your CROCODILE ROCK on like a CANDLE IN THE WIND. We know our audience will never say I GUESS THAT’S WHY THEY CALL IT THE BLUES after attending this joy-filled concert.

Legacies are an important part of who we are. Our reflection on the gifts we have received, from our past, builds our future and offers hope for new growth. PRIDE is integral to our society and the continued acceptance we seek as an LGBTQ community. The R.G.M.C. will be saying “Thank You” as we celebrate Pride in July. We hope our music will build bridges of understanding, acceptance and equality, and that the community will embrace the mission of our organization to strengthen our communities. Join us for a concert celebrating our legacy and future in the LGBTQ community, our city, state, nation, and world.
Join us for a fun-filled evening benefitting the Rochester Gay Men' Chorus. Enjoy food, drink, a Live DJ, performances by the Rochester Gay Men's Chorus and local Drag Queens, and bid on some great items in our Silent Auction. We are asking those attending our Mardi Gras Masquerade Ball to wear masks and/or come dressed in Mardi Gras themed costumes. Traditional Mardi
Gras celebrations nearly always involve the use of masks and costumes by its participants, and the most popular celebratory colors are purple, green, and gold. In fact, in New Orleans, float
riders are required by law to wear masks!
