Vancouver's Out in Harmony celebrates 20 years with greatest hits concert

Celebrating 20 years, Out In Harmony (formerly the Vancouver Lesbian & Gay Choir) present[ed] Looking Back, Looking Forward on Saturday, January 22, 2011.

In choosing the theme and music for the concert, Out In Harmony took a look back over their repertoire of the last 20 years and chose the gems, milestones, and the favourites of both audiences and singers. A "greatest hits" concert, the choir promises to dust off such classics as “Some of My Best Friends are Straight”, “Bridge Over Troubled Water” and “Va Pensiero”, inviting music lovers to take the trip down memory lane along with them.

Founded in 1990 as the Vancouver Lesbian & Gay Choir, Out In Harmony traces its history back to the Vancouver hosted Gay Games III. As the Games came to a close in 1990, the founding members of the choir met to discuss starting a permanent, openly lesbian and gay chorus in Vancouver. By September of that same year the first rehearsal took place.

In 2010 the choir changed its name to Out in Harmony representing its diverse membership which includes more than just Lesbians and gay men. Out in Harmony strives to be a community choir, welcoming and encouraging everyone who understands the importance of, and wanting to be part of, a supportive and public singing group that actively identifies as ‘Non-Straight-&-Narrow’.
