It features a special appearance by the nation’s premier Cher impersonator Chad Michaels who hair-flipped his way to the championship of RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars.
As part of the choruses Youth Engagement Program singers from Washington Middle School will join SMC on stage on Sunday March 31 to create a multi-generational chorus and premiere a new work. Together, under the guidance of composer Jim Papoulis, and published by Hal Leonard, the new piece evolved from the young singers’ collective thoughts, fears and hopes revealed in a 2018 workshop.
