Nov 27, 2019

The River City Mixed Chorus is Nebraska’s LGBTA chorus (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Allies).  Founded in 1984 by eleven talented singers, it is now one of the longest-running LGBTA choruses in the United States and currently includes more than 110 singers, ranging in age from 18 to 83.  

Artistic Director, Barron Breland joins Mike Hogan "Live & Local" to talk about the beauty of the genre, how it positively affects health, quality of life, happiness, and how you can join the chorus for the next show!

The chorus performs all genres of music, from classical to pop.  Concerts are ASL-interpreted and held in handicap accessible performance spaces.  The upcoming holiday concert performed December 6, 7, and 8th, Brass & Bells, at the Omaha Conservatory of Music, will feature both sacred and secular holiday tunes, the Plymouth Brass and a handbell choir.
