Philadelphia Gay Mens Chorus
“Since its formation in 1981, the Philadelphia Gay Men’s Chorus has steadily increased its standing within the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) community and among Philadelphia arts organizations. The regular subscription season includes concert productions in December, March and June. In addition, the Chorus performs at cabarets, fundraisers, and other community events throughout the year. Our small auditioned ensemble, Brotherly Love, presents a concert in February as part of the subscription series. Additionally, they perform at other concerts and community outreach events throughout the year, representing the Chorus at events where participation by the full body is impractical. Our repertoire includes a broad range of styles, including art music from the 17th century to the present, spirituals, sacred music, holiday tunes, love ballads, comic pieces, pop and rock songs, Broadway and Hollywood, opera choruses, folk songs from around the world, the latest LGBT empowerment music and other newly commissioned LGBT works.” Source: www.pgmc.org

Philly’s Andrea Nardello has garnered favorable comparisons to Melissa Etheridge and Shawn Colvin for melding pop songwriting smarts with a confessional and literate songwriting style which often explores relationships, romance, and her own “out” family life.

After releasing ECHO, Andrea won the prestigious Philadelphia Songwriter’s Project Contest and Tri-State Indie’s “Acoustic Artist Of The Year”.
