BAY AREA RAINBOW SYMPHONY (BARS) JOINS 33rd ANNUAL PRIDE CONCERT® PROGRAM & PRODUCTION TEAM
The newest LGBTQ community music group in town, and one of San Francisco’s hottest concert tickets, Bay Area Rainbow Symphony (BARS) joins the performance line-up for the Annual Pride Concert™, making BARS the first string orchestra to perform at the Pride Concert in the event’s 33-year history.
The 33rd Annual Pride Concert – five pioneering ensembles, one fabulous performance – kicks off pride weekend with music by the world’s first and most recent openly LGBTQ music ensembles performing some of the flashiest music written for chorus, orchestra and wind ensemble.
Playing one night only, the concert features Bay Area Rainbow Symphony, Lesbian/Gay Chorus of San Francisco and San Francisco Lesbian/Gay Freedom Band, with special guests Golden Gate Men’s Chorus and San Francisco Gay Men’s Chorus Ambassadors, emceed by Trauma Flintstone. The program includes an Americana-style tribute to honor the 2011 Pride Theme, “In Pride We Trust,” and the lifting of the Don’t Ask Don’t Tell policy.
Show starts at 8 pm, Friday, June 24 at Everett Auditorium, 450 Church Street (between 16 th & 17th streets), San Francisco. Tickets are $15-$30. Wheelchair accessible. (800) 595-4TIX, or from the PRIDE CONCERT website.
