Get Tickets Here

The Capital City Men’s Chorus presents their 29th annual holiday concert, TRADITIONS.

Featuring special guest performer, Cathie Sheridan.

Traditions…they’re what the holiday season is all about. Remembrances, from days gone by, when folks would come together to celebrate the season and enjoy the fellowship of family and friends! Allow the men of the Capital City Men’s Chorus to transport you back to those carefree days, when you would peek over the table to get a glimpse of a perfectly browned turkey, fresh from the oven. Or, to see for the first time, the sights and sounds as the whole community comes alive with lights and music. Sneaking in to pick up a present, give it a little shake and wonder what’s inside! The soft lights of the Hanukiot- the Chanukah menorah, flickering across the room. Going to those holiday parties, or your favorite house of worship, to commune and celebrate with others in your neighborhood, some of whom you haven’t seen since last holiday!

Come along with the CCMC, accompanied by our orchestra of strings and harp, as we take you back to yesteryear with some familiar old songs, who, like very old friends, only improve with time and age! Songs like the ever-popular Sleigh Ride, Carol of the Bells, and many others, will get your toes tapping and put a smile on your face. Lorten Lauridsen’s beautiful anthem, Sure on this Shining Night, a poem about lasting friendships and chosen families is sure to move you like nothing you’ve ever heard before. If that’s not enough, the gorgeous, soaring sounds of the dual-choir selection of O beatum et sacrosanctum diem, is sure to imbue a sense of the holiday spirit that will last you through the New Year! As always, there will be a few surprises on stage to further entertain and delight. And, always a crowd favorite, our audience sing-a- long, where you get to join with the chorus and sing some cherished holiday melodies!

Please plan to attend this special, family-friendly performance and include the Capital City Men’s Chorus in your holiday Traditions!

Love Ignites !

The Capital City Men’s Chorus is honored to be part of the Equality Texas celebration LOVE Ignites ! 

Please join us Sunday June 26, 2016 at Central Presbyterian Church in Austin at 4:00

On June 26th, 2015, the Supreme Court passed into law Marriage Equality for all. The LGBTQ community felt victorious and a sense that we were finally making strides in our fight towards equality for all. Throughout the country there was a honeymoon period – a high almost – a feeling that we as a community could let our guard down and just – be ourselves.

June 12th, 2016, shattered that dream, and shattered the tenuous, hard-fought sense of personal safety that many gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender Americans had begun to feel. That early morning was a reminder that in all corners of this country, gay and transgender people are still regarded as second-class citizens who should be scorned. This fight is far from over.

On June 26th, 2016 – please join us at Central Presbyterian Church Austin to celebrate the anniversary of a great victory for our community and to recognize that the best way to honor the precious 49 lost lives in Orlando is to make them count for something.

Speakers include Austin Chief of Police Art Acevedo and Marriage Equality pioneers Nicole Dimetman & Cleo deLeon and Suzanne Bryant & Sarah Goodfriend.

After our presentation has concluded, all attendees are invited to walk with us to Cheer Up Charlies where the celebration and memorial will continue. https://www.facebook.com/events/622188781264616/

Let’s let Love Ignite us in this battle for full equality – not only in the laws that are passed – but also in the hearts and minds of every Texan.
