Sing for the cure

This was sent to me by my friend Laura:

In celebration of their 25th Anniversary and in observance of Breast Cancer Awareness month during October, the Bayou City Performing Arts will partner in collaboration with the Houston Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure for a once in lifetime event. The Gay Men's Chorus and the Bayou City Women's Chorus will come together as Bayou City Chorale to present Sing for the Cure ®. Th is is a 70-minute, 11-movement choral song cycle for full chorus, soloists, narrator and chamber orchestra. Based on written journal entries of women and their journey with breast cancer, librettist Pamela Martin weaves a tapestry of humanity struggling with cancer. Crafted by 10 different composers in a variety of styles, SING FOR THE CURE ® is a powerful story to be told.

20% of all ticket sales will be donated to the Houston Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure.

The performance will be on Tuesday, October 23, from 7:30 to 11:30 at Jones Hall. If you're on Facebook, there's an event for this here. Check it out.
