The talented singers of the Chicago Gay Men’s Chorus delight audiences with euphonic extravaganzas that combine musical theater, cabaret, and traditional choral performance. Musical director Patrick Sinozich guides 150 enthused performers through a barrage of classic and unconventional holiday tunes during Holly Follies, a Yuletide-themed concert. Throughout the performance, choralists brandish megaphones made out of gingerbread to belt out an array of wintry ditties, including Aretha Franklin’s “Kissing by the Mistletoe,” Sammy Davis Jr.’s “Christmastime All Over the World,” and Straight No Chaser’s “Who Spiked the Eggnog?” The evening will also showcase two brand-new Hanukkah compositions. Like shotgunning a jug of apple cider, singing along to the well-known carols fills audiences to the brim with Christmas spirit.
