The Knoxville Gay Men's Chorus Presents "I Sing Out" Featuring Tony Award-Winner Levi Kreis


Now in its seventh year, the Knoxville Gay Men's Chorus (KGMC) has grown from 15 members to a group of 75. Under the leadership of Dr. Alan Stevens, the men will join together in song on October 11th at the Bijou Theatre, 7:30pm. In celebration of National Coming Out Day (which is October 11th), the KGMC will present a concert with Tony Award-Winner and Oliver Springs, TN native, Levi Kreis. In "I Sing Out", the chorus will present favorites from seasons past, as well as a new song by Kreis, written specifically for the KGMC. In addition, Levi performs solo and will share his personal story of coming out.

Melony calls the beautiful mountains of Boone, N.C., home, although she was born near Greensboro, N.C. There’s just something about those Blue Ridge Mountains that got in her blood and never left after she moved there to attend Appalachian State University (ASU). While at ASU, she majored in piano performance and music therapy and began to cultivate a love for accompanying and for collaborating with other musicians. This soon led her to earn a master’s degree in collaborative piano at the University of Tennessee, which she attended from 2006-2008.
