King George III, Meet King George III!
When the San Francisco Gay Men’s Chorus announced that “You’ll Be Back” from HAMILTON would be included in their upcoming concert, “The Brits Are Coming,” SHN wanted to be in the room where it was happening and arranged for them to learn more about the song directly from Andrew Wojtal, a company member of HAMILTON, who has played King George III, as well as other roles in the production.
Andrew’s time was well-spent, offering his thoughts to SFGMC’s King George Kellan Christopher, and giving valuable insight into the underpinning of the song to SFGMC’s Music Director Tim Seelig, Associate Music Director Mitch Galli and Pianist Lynden Bair. Following his coaching, Andrew attended the full rehearsal of 275 singers where he discussed his role in HAMILTON before he was honored with an SFGMC tradition, the singing of a blessing, to say thank you for his support.
“The Brits Are Coming” plays Davies Symphony Hall for one-night only, Friday, March 22. Ticket available at cityboxoffice.com.
SHN’s partnership with the San Francisco Gay Men’s Chorus is one of many ways in which SHN partners with Bay Area nonprofits.
