Nashville in Harmony, Nashville’s city chorus for people of all sexual orientations, gender identities and gender expressions, has announced its program and Making Spirits Bright, its 2018 holiday concert scheduled for December 4, 2018 at Langford Auditorium.
Making Spirits Bright continues Nashville in Harmony’s tradition of hosting an annual holiday performance that creates a safe and welcoming environment for patrons to celebrate their community and themselves.
This year’s concert includes a variety of well-known holiday favorites including “Jingle Bells,” “Deck the Halls” and “All I Want for Christmas is You,” as well as a few surprises along the way. The concert will feature performances from Nashville in Harmony and Major Minors, NiH’s group for young people, ages 12-18, to be themselves without apology.
“We’re designing Making Spirits Bright to get everyone in the spirit!” says Don Schlosser, Artistic Director of Nashville in Harmony. “Expect lots of energy, and sparkle. We promise to brighten your spirits as we explore an array of holiday pieces.”
This performance also celebrates the 15-year anniversary of Nashville in Harmony. The concert will feature a retrospective of the organization’s early years and testimonials from some of the founding members.
The role of Nashville in Harmony in the lives of many in LGBT Nashville is hard to diminish. For instance, as Lynn Putnam and Derrick Dishner said, “NIH was one of the first things we did as a couple when moving to Nashville. Joining NiH has created lasting lifelong friendships that have been invaluable to our relationship.” So the presentations and testimonials are sure to be moving.
