From Queer to Eternity – tickets now on sale!

This summer, we are returning to Cadogan Hall for a sizzling evening of choral music to mark 50 years since the decriminalisation of homosexuality. Our repertoire will be drawn from LGBT composers and performers as well as music that has been meaningful to these communities.
Entitled ‘From Queer to Eternity’Songs of Struggle and Celebration, the evening will cover music from a rich variety of styles and genres including artists such as Leonard Bernstein, Dusty Springfield, Queen, Erasure, Joan Armatrading, Mika, Radiohead, George Michael, Lady Gaga and Christine and the Queens. Classical numbers will include a rousing chorus by Handel and a moving spiritual by Michael Tippett.
Special guests
We are delighted to be sharing the stage with two special guest choirs: Out Aloud from Sheffield, and – to highlight the work being done around the world on legalising homosexuality, as part of a year-long exchange project – we will also be joined by Rainbow Voices Mumbai, India’s first LGBT choir.
Prepare to come on a musical journey with the Pink Singers: from hidden to visible… from shame to pride… from Queer to Eternity.

Rainbow Singers Across Borders

On 11 October 2015, the Rainbow Singers Across Borders, a choir made up of LGBT asylum seekers based in Croydon, visited the Pink Singers at our rehearsal for National Hate Crime Awareness Week.

We exchanged songs, then sang and danced together, learning about the challenges they face but realizing that we have so much in common.

Two choirs, one message: stop hate crime.
