A Prairie Homo Companion – A Parody of Everyone’s Favorite Radio Show

A Prairie Homo Companion Concert | Oakland East Bay Gay Men's Chorus | Alameda Berkeley

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!

Oakland East Bay Gay Men’s Chorus Brings “Fairy Tales” to Lafayette

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.
