Plug: London Gay Men's Chorus does Seven Deadly Sins

It's less than a month away from when the London Gay Men's Chorus presents the Seven Deadly Sins at the Roundhouse. The show is a mix of classics, pop and show tunes, which is fair enough...

But even more interesting will be a segment in the show where a group of young fathers aged between 16-25 join with a small group from the chorus to create a version of John Lennon's 'Jealous Guy', fusing pop and rap. The fathers and members of the Chorus are being tutored by Rodney P, 'the Godfather of British rap' along with musical director Simon Sharp from London Gay Men's Chorus.

This will be the first time the chorus performs a show at the Roundhouse. A year or so ago we rehearsed there and made some weird yelping noises so the Roundhouse could get a sense of the acoustic for choirs (or the acoustic for gay men). Anyway it is a great venue and I'll be blogging more about the fun and hard work of it all this month...

Tickets are on sale now through the Roundhouse and the show will be raising funds for the Albert Kennedy Trust, which supports lesbian, gay, lesbian and trans and bisexual young people.
