Handel’s quintessential Coronation Anthems, composed for King George II, are to this day the standard-bearers of this celebratory tradition. His popular Music for the Royal Fireworks distills the pride of a nation into orchestral form, while Ode for the Birthday of Queen Anne utilizes the majestic voices of featured singers Joélle Harvey, Iestyn Davies, and Sumner Thompson to uplift and delight.

Shine On: A Concert for Trans Day of Visibility

Members of New York City Gay Men’s Chorus—the world-renowned institution and pioneering voice for the LGBTQ community—perform in celebration of International Transgender Day of Visibility. “Shine On: A Concert for Trans Day of Visibility” is hosted by NYC legend, comedian, and international entertainer Murray Hill and features performances by trailblazing actress, singer, DJ, reality star, and activist Peppermint. This free program is part of The Cooper Union’s Gardiner Foundation Great Hall Forum series.

The New York City Gay Men’s Chorus (NYCGMC), which was founded in 1980 and held their debut holiday concert that year in The Cooper Union’s Great Hall, is comprised of more than 260 talented singers of various ages, backgrounds, and experiences. NYCGMC sings in every style from classical to pop, Broadway to gospel, and from cultures all over the world.

Murray Hill plays Fred Rococo in HBO’s “Somebody Somewhere” which was awarded many “Best of” 2022 Awards, including “Best New TV Series” from AFI. He’s been selected as OUT’s Top 100 influential performers twice; included in New York Magazine’s “Fifty Most Iconic Gender Benders of All Time”; and named one of the Top 12 gender-bending performers in NYC by Time Out.

Peppermint was the first out trans contestant on “Rupaul’s Drag Race” and became the first trans woman to originate a principal role on Broadway in the hit musical Head Over Heels. She currently serves on the board of GLAAD and she is the ACLU’s Artist Ambassador for Transgender Justice.
