In December 2015, New York City Gay Men's Chorus was thrilled and honored to perform as special guests in the New York Philharmonic's holiday concert Oh, What Fun! at David Geffen Hall. It was the first time the two venerable organizations have appeared together in their long histories.
Under the baton of conductor Courtney Lewis, NYCGMC and New York Philharmonic delighted audiences with holiday favorites "I'll Be Home for Christmas", Mariah Carey's "All I Want for Christmas", and a mashup of Irving Berlin's "Happy Holiday" and Pharrell Williams' "Happy", as well as the Christmas Trilogy of "I Saw Three Ships", "What Child is This?", and "God Rest Ye Merry, Gentlemen" originally arranged for NYCGMC by Mark Riese in 1983.
