"Music has the affirming power to build bridges," says Turtle Creek Chorale Artistic Director Sean Baugh. "This special tour is a wonderful opportunity for the 200 men of the Turtle Creek Chorale to share positive stories in song. Though communities on this tour may hold social and political views different from ours, we often share much more than we acknowledge. The best way to bridge those differences is with conversation and shared experiences. We hope this tour does just that by sharing musical experiences not previously known and as offered by a huge chorus of primarily gay men singing about peace, acceptance, love, and community."

Featured on this tour will be a new song-cycle titled "Peacemakers." This 30-minute work by lyricist Tony Sylvestri and composers Andrea Ramsey, Gerald Guss, and James Eakin was commissioned by the Chorale in cooperation with several other choruses. The new composition speaks of creating peace through courage by addressing issues involving political turmoil, religious intolerance, fear of strangers, immigration, and coming to the defense of others.
