Celebrate the Power of Love

LGBTQ+ people are among the most vulnerable of all refugee groups. In the original oratorio, Love Beyond Borders, Seattle Men’s Chorus celebrates the power of love. Compelling video interviews are woven throughout this extraordinary, one-of-a-kind concert. Hear the inspirational songs and stories of refugees escaping persecution in this must-see performance, February 18, 2024.


Thanks to a generous donor, in-person ticket prices at all levels have been reduced by $20 each. Ticket prices will now range from $19 to $79, before ticketing and venue fees. Our ticketing site reflects the updated pricing.


The Choruses are proud to participate in TeenTix, which allows teenagers (13-19 years old) to purchase $5 day-of-show tickets. Fees are waived in partnership with this program.

College Student Rush Discount: Bring your student i.d. and see the concert for $11 day-of-show, inclusive of fees.

Access For All: It is a part of our mission to make the arts accessible to all, thus we offer sliding scale pricing for those who cannot otherwise attend our performances.
