The Gay Men’s Chorus of Washington (GMCW) first came to Middleburg to sing a benefit for A Place To Be to a sell-out audience at the community center.  They are now returning with an exciting collection of the best in pop and show tunes.  The concert will benefit the new Andy Bergner Center and will be held at Emmanuel Episcopal Church at 105  East Washington Street, Middleburg.

The Andy Bergner Center is a community outreach ministry of Emmanuel which provides a free day of fun, fellowship, food, and life enhancing information designed to stimulate the mind, body, and heart of Adults 45+ who want or need a day of diversion.

A reception will be hosted by Emmanuel’s At The Parish House Arts Series after the concert to celebrate the official Grand Opening of the Andy Bergner Center which has been in pilot since April.  Andy Bergner’s daughter (Laurie Maggiano) of Middleburg and grandson (Chase Maggiano) as well as other members of the Bergner family will attend to cut the ribbon for the official opening.

GMCW has performed all over the nation including at the White House, Carnegie Library, Symphony Hall in Boston, Carnegie Hall in New York, Kennedy Center Honors, and for Presidents Barack Obama and Bill Clinton’s inaugural. Chase Maggione is the past director of GMCW and to honor his grandfather, GMCW volunteered to sing a benefit for ABC before the first doors opened in April.
