Join the Oakland-East Bay Gay Men’s Chorus for the whimsical and witty “A Prairie Homo Companion”, a parody of everyone’s favorite radio show.
Artistic Director, William Sauerland, crafts a show that highlights a diverse repertoire, from opera hits of Giuseppe Verdi and Sigmund Romberg to popular tunes of Anne Murray and Sandi Patty, along with some blues, bluegrass, and American folksongs.
Classic radio drama-parodies are sprinkled throughout the show, including “Gay Noir, Private Eye,” “Days of Our Lives of the Cowboys,” and “News from Lake Merritt.”
The chorus will be joined by two guest soloists, soprano Shawnette Sulker and songstress Annie Herring.
Even if you aren’t familiar with the timeless radio show that has inspired our spinoff, you will love the hilarity, bravura, and exceptional artistry of the Oakland-East Bay Gay Men’s Chorus!
