The Oakland East Bay Gay Men’s Chorus performed the opening night of “Fairy Tales” at the Lafayette Christian Church on Saturday, December 3 at 7:30pm. A sold-out show, the audience was packed with eager attendees excited for the concert to begin.

Pastor Steve Borgard welcomed the audience, introducing OEBGMC’s Artistic Director, William Sauerland. William took the stage and welcomed the crowd, requesting first a moment of silence for those affected by the tragic loss of life in Oakland’s Ghost Ship warehouse fire on December 2. Some of the young musicians and artists were students and friends of Chorus members.

Mr. Sauerland also let the audience know that 10% of the ticket proceeds for all three OEBGMC concerts will be donated to the Rainbow Community Center in Concord, which has been vandalized repeatedly in recent weeks. RCC provides social, health and advocacy programs for the LGBTQ community, and their representatives were in attendance.
