LANSING, Mich. — The "Spring Sing Thing" planned for March 21 has been postponed until further notice due to COVID-19. New dates will be announced in coming weeks.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The LanSINGout Chorus invites the public to their spring fundraiser, “Spring Sing Thing”. The event will feature the 45 voices of the chorus, including a sneak peek of pieces from the anticipated May 2020 concert. The live singing event will be accompanied by food and drinks on Saturday, March 21 at 6:30 p.m. at the historic Potter House in Downtown Lansing.

“The chorus has grown so much in talent and enthusiasm over the past year. We are eager to bring the Lansing community together and showcase a glimpse of all we’ve been working on,” said Peter Hobson-Morse, director of the LanSINGout Chorus. “We are so grateful for our community supporting us and our dream of going to Minneapolis in July.”

In July, members of LanSINGout Chorus will travel to Minneapolis to perform at this year's GALA Festival. Funds raised from the $25 ticket prices will support the chorus’s participation in the the quadrennial international celebration of the LGBTQ+ choral movement. The GALA Festival is a five-day event of singing, community-building, dancing, workshops and networking.

“We are proud to be a part of 7,000 delegates from more than 150 LGBTQ+ and allied choruses from around the world that gather for the 2020 GALA Festival,” said Ben Boerkoel, president of the LanSINGout Chorus. “Through this event we can raise our voices together as a unified, supportive and caring community.”
