Founded in 2008 at Beijing, the Shining Jazzy Chorus is now, with around 30
voices, the only public performing LGBT chorus in mainland China, the first
GALA* member in Asia, and one of the cofounders of Proud Voices Asia**.

With a wide ranging repertoire from classical music to folk, jazz and pop,
the chorus's aim is to challenge society's preconceptions of the
stereotypical image of a gay person, while providing a social network for
its members and audience.

The Shining Jazzy Chorus will be accepting donations on the concert, for
its 2014 development projects, like helping another Chinese city to found
LGBT chorus, attending the 4 yearly European LGBT chorus festival, etc.

Beijing LGBT Chorus Workshop
by Eric Lane Barnes
The Shining Jazzy Chorus (三棱减一合唱团) is China's only performing Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender chorus. They were founded in 2008 and continue to slowly grow and build support through weekly meetings, rehearsals and concerts. I met members of the Shining Jazzy Chorus over the internet - they were interested in performances I have done with my vocal comedy ensemble Captain Smartypants, and expressed interest in several of the songs we performed in our show last spring. Last fall they invited me to visit Beijing to help them work on their repertoire and prepare for a concert. This seemed like a wonderful opportunity to help support a fledgling community in a country that is just now beginning to recognize and - slowly - accept the reality of the hundreds of thousands of lesbian and gay citizens living in China.
I have worked with many choruses, vocal ensembles and theater groups in my years as a professional director and conductor. There are few things more rewarding than seeing a performing ensemble attain new levels of artistic expression. I am looking forward to learning about Chinese culture and music, and seeing what new insights I may bring back to Seattle with me.
I will be spending a week and a half with the chorus, rehearsing with them several times, leading a weekend retreat, and meeting with the different directors and accompanists that work with the chorus. I am bringing an ancient Mandarin poem to set to music for the chorus; several members of the Shining Jazzy Chorus are eager to help me learn how to pronounce the poem so I will be able to compose appropriate music for it. I will also be bringing several vocal arrangements and compositions that have worked well with groups I have worked with here in Seattle and the US.

Shining Jazzy Chorus: Over the Rainbow
from City Weekend Beijing, 25 June 2013 , www.cityweekend.com.cn/beijing/articles/blogs-beijing/LGB...
Part performance and part salon, this is one feel-good event that will have you tapping your toes along with the sounds of the Shining Jazzy Chorus—the only publicly performing LGBT choir in China and the first Gay and Lesbian Association of Choruses member in Asia.
“The Same Rainbow Over Seattle and Beijing” is a silent auction peppered with small ensembles from the chorus singing a capella numbers such as “Happy Together,” and several gay anthems composed by Eric Lane Barnes, assistant artistic director of the Seattle Men’s Chorus, who will be in Beijing for the festivities.
We first saw the chorus last year during their fourth anniversary concert at Penghao Theater, and it was a grand time. In addition to singing, there will be a raffle and various games throughout the evening. The event is free, but you’ll need to secure tickets by emailing your name and phone number to bjlgbt.chorus@gmail.com.
After Chen, Roy, Faye and I met with Ambassador Gary Locke we spent a few hours debriefing about the meeting, the concert, and the future of the Shining Jazzy Chorus. Faye (who has been one of the music directors of the group) said to me, “Before you came, we never really looked at ourselves. Now we have a whole new perception of who we are and what we can do.” This, to me, was the best possible outcome of my two weeks spent with the chorus: an ability to look much further ahead and take on new accomplishments. I really enjoyed the musical and staging rehearsal time I had with the chorus, and feel we made good strides in lots of different performance areas. But to see them taking on new roles, new responsibilities, stepping up to the gay choral plate as it were – this is truly marvelous. I feel honored and grateful to have been part of this time in their history.
A plan is afoot to get the Shining Jazzy Chorus (about 12 members or so) to the GALA Choruses Festival in Denver of 2016. I think this is very possible, and would be a life-changing event for everyone involved. I will most likely be creating a new USA Project to bring me back to Beijing in 2015 with a camera crew.

Shining Jazzy Chorus
A Beijing chorus of gay men. Music
by Dinah Gardner, Time Out Beijing,
9 Sep 2011, www.timeoutbeijing.com/features/Music/13015/Shining-Jazzy...

It doesn’t matter if you can’t sing, as long as you’re gay or lesbian and like a good melody, the Shining Jazzy Chorus will welcome you with open jazz hands.

‘It’s not just about singing,’ explains Ling Yu, the 28-year-old Harbin native who is co-founder and head of the choir. ‘We are not a professional choir and, if you just want to sing, I think you won’t stay for long. But, if you come here wanting to make friends, then I think you will have a great time and keep on coming.’

But that’s not to say the chorus isn’t serious about its music. The group, which was founded in October 2008, meets every Sunday between 11am and 3pm at the Beijing LGBT Center. I check out one of these sessions, and find that the first two hours are presided over by one of four teachers (two of whom are professional singers) who don’t pussyfoot around with their instructions. ‘Breathe properly,’ exhorts one camp teacher, banging at the piano and yelling over his shoulder. When members of the choir are called one by one to sing two lines from ‘Hua Fei Hua’, he gets straight to the point. ‘Why do you keep fluttering your voice like this,’ he mimics after one forty something man has had his turn. ‘Open your chest. Do you understand?’ The singer giggles nervously and tries again. The second two hours are when the choir just belts it out. At 3pm, the boys go for a late lunch together.

It’s a very different crowd to the one you might find on a Friday night at Destination. Shining Jazzy has grown from a mere ten members back in 2008 to about 130 people signed up to its group on social networking website QQ. Around 20 of these fans show up every week. Participating members pay a token annual membership fee of 100RMB, which goes towards the tuition fees. While there are no women – ‘we had a few lesbians but I think they felt lonely so now we are all men’ – it is otherwise a diverse bunch. The ages range from 18 to over 70, explains Ling. Every now and again, some foreigners show up. Everyone gets on well except for a few who were unlucky enough to find a boyfriend among the ranks of the choir and then later break up. ‘The choir always loses one half of the couple,’ laments Ling.

The music is classical and folk – both Chinese and American. ‘But no pop songs,’ the choirmaster insists. ‘Pop music is just about love. I love you. You love me. There really is no other meaning to it. But our music is deeper. It’s more profound.’

Ling has floppy hair, large, warm eyes and a very attractive smile. His slender frame belies a deep, resonant singing voice; it is slightly shocking when he breaks into a few bars from what sounds like a Chinese version of ‘Swanee River’ during the interview. He started singing when he was 18, partly because of the influence of his parents, who are both musically minded but unaware of their son’s sexuality (Ling Yu is a pseudonym – along with most members of the choir, he prefers to keep his sexual orientation private).

While anyone, gay or gay friendly, can join the choir or simply listen to them sing every Sunday, the group sometimes per form in public, although always in gay-friendly venues. ‘We have about six performances a year. We’ve per formed for the Chinese Center for Disease Control, Aibai [a gay web portal] and in some gay bars,’ says Ling, who adds they are planning an event for October to celebrate their three years in the singing business. Watch this space for details.

When Ling is asked where his dream venue for a Shining Jazzy performance would be, he replies without missing a beat: ‘Overseas to a gay audience.’ Does he ever dream about playing at The Egg one day? ‘No,’ he grins. ‘We don’t want to perform in a venue where we wouldn’t feel comfortable because we are a gay choir. We want to perform in a gay-friendly place. And, besides, we aren’t that good.’

Shining Jazzy Chorus meets 11am-3pm every Sunday at the Beijing LGBT Center
Its QQ fan group is 35784163. Email zg_sundew@163.com for more information or to join the group.
