A Chorus With a Cause - KPLU Highlights The Seattle Men's Chorus
With more than 300 members, The Seattle Men's Chorus (SMC) bills itself as the biggest community choir in the country. It's also one of the biggest gay men's choruses in the world.
And even though the concerts are staged and showy, the musical group does more than just entertain.
Although the entertainment value is high at an SMC concert, explains artistic director Dennis Coleman.
"Most people think of choral music as being a church choir. And that translates in their minds to a bunch of people standing on risers in funny robes and holding black folders in front of their face and singing. And we don't do any of that," he says.
