Gay Asian Pacific Alliance (GAPA) helps kicks off Gay Pride Month with EPIC! a performing arts showcase celebrating the 20th Anniversary of the GAPA Men’s Chorus. In an intimate full-length program, the Chorus starts things off with classical pieces that highlight a harmonic blend of voices, followed by Americana and Pop selections as well as a multi-lingual blend of songs in Vietnamese, Indonesian, Tagalog, Japanese and Mandarin. Honoring the diversity of queer API achievement in the arts, the production will also feature solo artists, dance and spoken word, and include performances by Mr. & Miss GAPA, GAPA Dance Company, and students of Na Lei Hulu I Ka Wekiu, a famed and distinguished hula group in San Francisco. EPIC! is part of closing night festivities for EPIC: Visualizing Heroes Within, a visual arts exhibition presented in association with Asian Pacific Islander Cultural Center’s 12th Anniversary United States of Asian America Festival.
