“We’re excited to welcome back the Gay Men’s Chorus of South Florida and their fans to Hard Rock Event Center,” said Susan Renneisen, vice president of community affairs and special events at Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Hollywood. “The community looks forward to their holiday show every year, and we are excited to see Matthew Morrison take the stage with the group.”

Known for his work on Broadway, Morrison became a household name playing the beloved choral director, Will Schuester, in the hit television musical comedy, “Glee.”  Morrison has starred on stage in various Broadway productions, including “Finding Neverland,” “Hairspray,” “The Light in the Piazza” and “South Pacific.”  In April 2018, Morrison, along with other stars from the Broadway and television community, united with students from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School to perform in a televised benefit concert, “From Broadway With Love: A Benefit Concert For Parkland, USA,” with all proceeds benefiting the Marjory Stoneman Douglas Victims’ Fund and Shine MSD.

About Gay Men’s Chorus of South Florida

Now entering its ninth season, the Gay Men’s Chorus of South Florida pursues a mission of inspiring through song. The Chorus continues to realize this mission in ways that can only be considered extraordinary. In its short history, the Chorus has grown to over one-hundred-and-thirty-five men and has become the largest gay men’s chorus in the southeastern United States. The Gay Men’s Chorus of South Florida is under the direction of Artistic Director & Conductor Harold Dioquino. The Chorus has earned a strong reputation for excellence, garnering prestigious invitations to perform throughout the South Florida region. The Chorus was the first gay men’s chorus to be invited to sing with the Symphony of the Americas (on the occasion of that orchestra’s twenty-fifth anniversary celebration); and was the first gay chorus ever to be invited to sing during the 33-year run of the very prestigious Sunday Afternoons of Music at the Gusman Center at the University of Miami. In 2015, the Gay Men’s Chorus of South Florida performed its holiday concert as an invited guest on the Live at Lynn! series at Lynn University in Boca Raton.  The Chorus reached a major milestone in December 2016, when it collaborated with Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Hollywood to perform its holiday concert at Hard Rock Live! The two entities have continued this partnership, now in its third year.  Special guest artists have included Linda Eder and Alan Cumming with Matthew Morrison scheduled as the guest artist for 2018.  Annually, through a combination of mainstage, outreach and educational performances, the Gay Men’s Chorus of South Florida reaches more than 19,500 individuals.
