A week of choral music from the Women’s Chorus and the TCC

The holidays are a precious time for song, from sacred hymns to secular carols to simple feelings of warmth, family and fun, and two of Dallas’ best — both with gay appeal — are performing this week… and not in competition! First is the Women’s Chorus of Dallas with its one-night-only Winter Voices concert Saturday, featuring Metropolitan Winds  and including the world-premiere song cycle How to Survive Winter. Then starting on Thursday, Dallas’ gay men’s chorus, the Turtle Creek Chorale, is back with its fan-favorite Christmas show, Home, which focuses on its own loving look at surviving the holidays. Both perform at City Performance Hall.

2 groups hold holiday toy-and-teddy-bear drives

On Saturday you get your choice of gay events to do something for disadvantaged kids during the holidays… but there’s no reason you can’t do both. First the Lost Souls Rugby Club will host a toy drive and tacky sweater contest at the Round-Up. As that’s ending, just down the street is the annual Teddy Bear Party, where admission is a new plush toy.
