Sydney Gay & Lesbian Choir presents Back to the 80s

APN-Sydney-Gay-and-Lesbian-ChoirSydney Gay & Lesbian Choir (SGLC) is thrilled to present one of its biggest performances to date, Back to the 80s – a jukebox concert of beloved 80s hits at the Seymour Centre on Saturday 8 June 2024.

Featuring 100 singers, eighteen classic songs, a five-piece live band, and fabulous 80s inspired costumes, Back to the 80s will take audiences on a spectacular musical journey through the heartfelt ballads and anthems that defined a generation.

Musical Director Adam Majsay describes the program as “a blast from the past from start to finish injected with SGLC’s signature sparkle,” he said. “The music of the 1980s seems to have an almost universal appeal.”

“Whether you were burning up the dancefloor in the 80s, or were not even born yet, the songs of Madonna, Cyndi Lauper, Queen, Bonnie Tyler are instant crowd favourites, at the karaoke machine, in the nightclubs, at the pub, and, for one night only, on stage with Sydney Gay & Lesbian Choir,” said Majsay.

Sydney Gay & Lesbian Choir has been the soundtrack of Sydney’s LGBTQI community for more than 30 years. It is a non-auditioned choir which welcomes members regardless of their sexual identity or musical experience.

The choir is open to all, united by a love of singing together and striving for performance excellence. A powerful symbol of diversity, inclusion and harmony, the choir has maintained a vital and visible presence in the history of Sydney’s LGBTQIA+ community since 1991.

Don’t miss your chance to get on your shoulder pads and big hair to relive the magic of the 80s, in this unforgettable celebration of music and community!
