STOCKTON - The Sacramento Gay Men’s Chorus returns to perform their Light Your World concert in the sanctuary of Central United Methodist Church on Saturday, Dec. 8, at 4 p.m.

This will be their third Christmas concert in Stockton.  American Sign Language

The Light Your World concert will be conducted by the group’s new artistic director, Steven Johnson.  A pianist, conductor and composer, Johnson also serves as director of Music and Worship at St. John’s Lutheran Church in downtown Sacramento.  He is a graduate of California State University- Sacramento where he earned a Bachelor’s degree in Piano Performance.  He also holds a Master’s Degree in Choral Conducting from CSUS. 

The Stockton performance will include “A Social Network Christmas,” the group’s first original number to be jointly commissioned with the Seattle Men’s Chorus.  The number features hilarious lyrics and choreographed movement and lovingly pokes fun at the world of social media.  “How Could Anyone,” the entire chorus has learned American Sign Language and will sign the lyrics as they sing.  The title of the show references the final song in the concert, “Go Light Your World,” a moving call for social justice and human kindness. 

The Sacramento Gay Men’s Chorus was founded in 1984 as a singing group aimed at fostering a sense of community and provides support for Sacramento area gay and lesbian people.  Over the past 28 years, the group has become an integral part of the Sacramento arts community as well as a voice for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender equality.

Tickets are $15  and available at Central United Methodist Church or at the door.
