Jan. 22-Jan. 23 River City Mixed Chorus “Our Family Tree” First United Methodist Church, 70th and Cass Jan. 22, 7 p.m.; Jan. 23, 4 p.m.; $20 ADV/$25 DOS $15 seniors, students, children, rcmc.org Omaha’s outstanding GLBT chorus is marking more than a quarter-century of musical magic with its performance of “Our Family Tree.” The program is the organization’s second of the season and the first for the full chorus. Interim artistic director Wayne Moore calls the show a reflection on all our families, nuclear, families of choice and global families. He promises some of the music will be familiar, including favorites like “We Are Family” made famous by Sister Sledge, the traditional “Motherless Child,” White Christmas’s “Sisters” and “He Ain’t Heavy, He’s My Brother.” This is RCMC’s last performance until June and it should be a good one. “I think they (the audience) can expect to reflect on their own families and come to the realization that we are all connected,” Moore says.
