Cost: General admission tickets are $25 and VIP tickets with priority seating are priced at $40, plus a small service fee.

The Fort Lauderdale Gay Men’s Chorus (FTLGMC) is honoring the 100 years of American Composer Leonard Bernstein and the legacy of Matthew Shepard – a college student who more than two decades ago was the victim of a brutal gay-hate murder – during “A Celebration of Life, Love and Music” performance on Sunday, March 17 at 5 p.m. from the All Saints Episcopal Church in Fort Lauderdale. A portion of show proceeds will benefit the Matthew Shepard Foundation.

While a significant portion of the evening showcases the prolific works of Bernstein, the Chorus is dedicating “Changing Hearts,” a special, six-piece collection, to Shepard and others who have been the victims of gay-hate crimes. The set features songs from some of Bernstein’s renowned Broadway musicals such as West Side Story, On the Town and Candidae. Scenes from The Laramie Project, a play that debuted in 2000 by Moisés Kaufman and members of the Tectonic Theater Project about the reaction of Shepard’s death, are being interspersed with the evening’s musical selections: Tonight; Something’s Coming; One Hand, One Heart; I Can Cook Too and Make Our Garden Grow.

Funding for the Fort Lauderdale Gay Men’s Chorus is provided in part by the Broward County Board of County Commissioners as recommended by the Broward Cultural Council. General admission tickets are $25 and VIP tickets with priority seating are priced at $40, plus a small service fee.

Tickets are available for purchase online at TheFTLGMC.org or by calling (954) 832-0060.

During this period, he also released several albums under his own name while receiving critical awards such as a Chamber Music of America’s New Works Grant in 2006 and DownBeat Critics Poll ‘Rising Star’ category in 2008 and 2009.

Named “one of the hottest jazz tickets in the world” for 2017, recent awards included Best International Jazz Artist at the 2017 Jazz FM Awards in London and the prestigious Paul Ackett Award from the 2017 North Sea Jazz Festival.
