LGCSF Sings the Music of Dead White Men: a Mostly Classical Concert
The Lesbian/Gay Chorus of San Francisco, under the baton of Cole Thomason-Redus, is excited to announce the first show of its 31st season, "LGCSF Sings the Music of Dead White Men" on October 22 & 23, 2010 at 8pm, at the First Congregational Church of San Francisco.

Halloween is traditionally a scary time of year, but for some people there's nothing scarier than the music and literature of dead white men. Fear not, this isn't your Uncle Fester's classical concert. The Lesbian/Gay Chorus of San Francisco performs all kinds of music, and this concert is no exception. From Bach to Mercury, LGCSF sings it all. We aim to please, in this world and the next.

Tickets are $15 to $30, sliding scale general admission. Discount tickets are available upon request. To purchase tickets, go to or call 1-800-838-3006. The First Congregational Church of San Francisco is located at 1300 Polk Street (at Bush), San Francisco, CA 94109. The Church is accessible via the California Street Cable Car line and many Muni bus lines.

The world's first choral organization to use both "lesbian" and "gay" in its name, the Lesbian/Gay Chorus of San Francisco has been producing choral programs since 1980, providing education and affirmation regarding the positive contributions of lesbians and gay men as expressed in their motto, "Everybody Matters." LGCSF has performed as far away as Sydney, Australia and as close as the Harvey Milk Academy in the Castro. Now in their 31th season, they love to share their music. This fall LGCSF is singing under the baton of Guest Conductor Cole Thomason-Redus.

A fifth-generation San Franciscan, Cole Thomason-Redus is quickly emerging as a sought-after conductor and educator of choral music and musical theater. Currently, Cole is in his eleventh year as an Artist-In-Residence at Ruth Asawa School of the Arts in San Francisco. His many duties there have included Music Director of the Musical Theater Department, Assistant Director of the Vocal Department, and Instructor of Advanced Placement Music Theory. For the last decade, Cole has been a vocalist and composer for the renowned choral ensemble, Schola Cantorum San Francisco -- a fourteen voice professional ensemble specializing in sacred choral literature of the past century. Many of his works written for the Schola have been recorded, broadcast on NPR and several on-line music sites, and have been performed by the San Francisco Symphony Chorus under the direction of Ragnar Bohlin. Additional conducting experience has included Guest and Interim Directorships of various local community choirs and theaters. Cole was also a Co-Founding Director of International Orange Choral -- a local semi-professional performing ensemble. Internationally, he has performed in 12 countries in Europe. As a vocalist, Cole continues to perform anywhere and everywhere from cathedrals to piano bars. Also of note, Cole served three years as a Classical Music Analyst on the Music Genome Project at, specializing in vocal, choral, and operatic literature.
