The Palm Springs Gay Men’s Chorus (PSGMC) is thrilled to announce that its 24th season concert line-up will be “Naughty or Nice?” December 16-18, 2022 and “Notorious” April 28-30, 2023 at the Palm Springs Art Museum Annenberg Theater. 

“The Chorus has been entertaining, inspiring and giving back to the community for 24 years. Our dual mission of musical excellence and singing for change, as well as our commitment to service, has made PSGMC ‘a chorus like no other. It is an honor and privilege to be the official gay men’s chorus of Palm Springs, and to present our main stage concerts in the heart of the city at the Annenberg Theatre at the Palm Springs Art Museum. There will be laughter, tears, and a whole lot of fun for everyone who attends, whether you’re on the nice list, or the naughty list! Santa’s elves remind us that the shows sell out early,” said Jerry R. Soria-Foust, Artistic Director, PSGMC.

New this year, PSGMC has enlisted the incredible talents of choreographer Michael Nickerson-Rossi. Michael launched and founded his dance company, “Nickerson-Rossi Dance,” in 2011. His firm belief in charitable and educational benefits propelled Michael to incorporate his company into a non-profit 501©3. The non-profit mission of Nickerson-Rossi Dance is to provide dance programs to youth, young adults, and adults that focus on dance education, dance as a therapeutic value, and access to professional performances.

We’re making our list, and checking it twice! The incredible Broadway diva Michele McConnell returns for our holiday extravaganza “Naughty or Nice?” December 16-18, 2022. Michele proudly made her Broadway debut in The Phantom of the Opera. During her 7-1/2 years in Phantom, Michele had the privileged distinction to be the longest-running Carlotta in Broadway history, with over 2200 performances in the role to her credit and to perform as Carlotta for the 10,000th Broadway show as well as the 25th Anniversary performance.
