SDGMC Jingle at the Balboa Theatre


It’s the holly jolliest holiday show of the year! Join the 200 singers, dancers and musicians of the San Diego Gay Men’s Chorus as they present Jingle at the festive Balboa Theatre. Snow is in the forecast for two fun and frolicking shows on December 9 and 10—both shows SOLD OUT last year, so get your tickets early.

You will love this popular, family friendly spectacular! Join us for wintry and wonderful holiday music from traditional favorites “Silver Bells,” “Joy to the World” and “Jingle Bells” to modern classics like the Pentatonix version of “Mary Did You Know” and Elf’s “A Christmas Song.” There will be sure to be some holiday humor including a “Hallelujah Chorus” of singing nuns and our handsome hula dancers’ take on Bing Crosby’s “Mele Kalikimaka.” We also are proud to present the world premiere arrangement of “You Will Be Found” for men’s chorus from this year’s Tony Award winning “Best Musical” Dear Evan Hansen. Jingle is San Diego’s favorite holiday tradition! Make it your holiday tradition as well!
