Next month The Boston Gay Men’s Chorus (BGMC) spring concert “Raise You Up,” gives voice (literally) to the themes of racial injustice and the resilience of the human spirit. The BGMC will be joined on stage with the super cool and fantastically talented Todrick Hall at New England Conservatory’s beautiful Jordan Hall on Saturday, March 16 and Sunday, March 17.
The first half of the show will feature “Seven Last Words of the Unarmed” to give voice to the last words of Michael Brown, Amadou Diallo, Kenneth Chamberlain, John Crawford, Eric Garner, Oscar Grant, and Trayvon Martin.
