CLEVELAND – The mass shooting at a gay nightclub in Orlando has a local men’s chorus trying to make a difference.
Pat Muzic, president of the North Coast Men’s Chorus, says when the news broke Sunday about the tragedy in Orlando the members of the group immediately began thinking of ways to show their support.
“We were in shock,” Muzic said Tuesday. “Most of Sunday was spent with a lot of texts, and phone calls.”
The group decided to dedicate their two concerts this weekend to the victims and their families. The shows will be 8 p.m. Saturday and 3 p.m. Sunday at the Waetjen Auditorium at Cleveland State University.
The group will also perform on the Fox 8 morning show Wednesday.
“We are going to be singing a song about why we sing,” Muzic said. “While we are a chorus and love to sing and have a great time doing it, our message really is about advocacy and treating people well, loving people and accepting people. “
