Red Door Community Concert: The Queensmen
May 6 @ 12:15 pm - 1:00 pm
Red Door Community Concert #5 will feature the Queensmen, the small ensemble of the Cincinnati Men’s Chorus with Steve Milloy, their Artistic Director. This ensemble strives to be the “best of the best” of the Chorus, representing the larger group. According to Steve, their program will be uplifting and positive, a selection of songs relating to contemporary social issues. Steve, a Miami grad, holds a Master of Music from UC’s Cincinnati Conservatory of Music. He has spent over three decades coaching and directing singers of all ages in diverse venues across the Midwest.
The Cincinnati Men’s Chorus is unique. It is a voluntary, nonprofit, community chorus organized to provide the opportunity for individuals identifying as male, whether gay, bisexual, transgender or straight allies to sing together. Their mission is, “Through music to strive for excellence, to support and nurture its members; to entertain their audiences, to work for justice, equity, diversity, inclusion, and harmony between the gay community and the community at large”.
Founded in 1991, the Chorus was part of the gay men’s choral movement which began in San Francisco and struck a hopeful chord in other cities across America. Their singing gave voice to the growing Aids epidemic, eventually bringing life-saving HIV research and medicine. The Cincinnati Men’s Chorus is now in its 31st year and has grown to about 100 members.
