Out Of My Range

Original music and lyrics by Michael Shaieb, book by Michael Shaieb and Brent Lord for a 10-song “backstage” song cycle that pulls back the curtain on generational differences within a Chorus. Rehearsals & social events lead up to the opening number of their next concert and serve as the backdrop for a whimsical, fun, & revealing look at the age dynamics at play inside a gay men’s chorus. Commissioned by Dr. Stan Hill and the Twin Cities Gay Men’s Chorus for their 2012 season and their performance at the GALA Choruses Festival 2012 in Denver.
