D.C. Gay Men's Chorus's Virtual 'Waving Through a Window' Is Beautiful 

DC Gay Men's Chorus

Members of the 39-year-old chorus perform the showstopper from Dear Evan Hansen while social distancing

To uplift spirits and form a sense of community, several choirs or choruses have banded together for virtual performances of uplifting and moving songs. The latest to add to the canon of virtual performances is Gay Men's Chorus of Washington, D.C., performing 'Waving Through a Window,' the showstopper from the Tony Award-winning Dear Evan Hansen.

The chorus was founded in 1981 and is involved in advocacy and outreach performances, including shows at the Human Rights Campaign National Dinner, National Institutes of Health, Whitman Walker Health, SMYAL, DC Flag Football, Valley AIDS Network, Luray Caverns, the National Transgender March for Visibility, and Washington National Cathedral, according to the group's website.

Since sheltering in place began over a month ago, virtual performances have included the San Francisco Gay Men's Chorus rendition of "Truly Brave," a mash-up of Cyndi Lauper's "True Colors" and Sara Bareilles's "Brave." Most recently, the Boston Gay Men's Chorus performed its signature song "Everything Possible."

Watch the Gay Men's Chorus of Washington, D.C., perform "Waving Through a Window" below.
