City honors Capital City Men’s Chorus
Friday, September 21, 2018 by Jo Clifton
Mayor Steve Adler welcomed the Capital City Men’s Chorus to City Hall Thursday, reading a proclamation in their honor and noting that City Council needs the music. Although Thursday’s meeting ended early, adjourning before 4:30 p.m., the mayor noted that most Council meetings go well past 5:30 p.m., and “we break it up with music. It’s important given the vigorousness with which people debate on this dais actually separating everybody at 5:30 and bringing in a little music. And sometimes I am convinced that we wouldn’t ever actually have people come back after the break if they didn’t have music,” he said. The Capital City Men’s Chorus, which is Austin’s oldest men’s chorus, is celebrating its 30th year with two performances this weekend at the Rollins Studio Theater at the Long Center.
