The Atlanta Gay Men’s Chorus will lift your spirits this weekend with their new summer concert “YAAAAAAS Broadway!

“City Lights” host Lois Reitzes spoke with artistic director Don Milton about this virtual concert. The songs performed in the show will be from various Broadway shows.

“Well, what’s better than a gay men’s chorus singing Broadway songs?” laughed Milton.

He continued, “Probably nothing, right?! It is one of those stereotypes that is fully embraced. We wanted to have this joyful concert, and I found that a lot of people right now are releasing the albums and the projects they’ve been writing during the pandemic, and there’s a lot of melancholy, but there’s a lot of optimism in the air right now, and this concert has that.”

The concert will be available to stream online June 18 and 19 at 8 p.m.
