Annual concerts celebrate the holiday in unique CGMC style

The annual “Joy” holiday concerts by the Columbus Gay Men's Chorus mix seasonal favorites, lesser-known gems and tunes that resonate with the LGBTQ community. This year, those include (respectively) “Sleigh Ride” and “It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year,” two pieces by Columbus composer Craig Courtney, and “Dear Santa Bring Me a Man.” This year's concerts also include Sara Bareilles' “Love is Christmas,” dedicated to longtime CGMC friend Chris Bradley.
