After more than 18 months of being shuttered by the COVID-19 pandemic, Christian Bohm will lead SGMC’s Big Comeback as we return to live rehearsals and performances with our Holiday Show in December—exactly two years since our last live concert.
Christian is a musical director, pianist, and vocal coach whose three-decade career has spanned the worlds of Broadway, cabaret, and choral music. Christian spent five years as the principal accompanist and assistant conductor for the San Francisco Gay Men’s Chorus, where he served as a vocal coach and accompanist to Alan Cumming, Rita Moreno, Sharon Gless, and many other guest artists.
Christian has devoted his talents to many seasons at Sacramento’s Broadway At Music Circus as a singer/actor, rehearsal accompanist, and pit musician. This fall, he begins his 27th year as a high school music teacher, specializing in chorus and music theory. He has traveled with his choruses to Italy, Paris, Israel, London, and across the United States, winning festivals and competitions along the way.
"During our extensive search process, Christian showed us that he not only possesses impressive musical skills and conducting experience but also approaches this position with a delightful demeanor and style,” said James Dahlen, SGMC President. “The Board of Directors is absolutely thrilled he accepted the position, and we are very excited for the great things coming in our 37th Season.”
Christian has a strong passion for social justice and equality but fostering the love and understanding of choral music is his main ethos and vocation in life. Christian states, “I am delighted to be at the helm of the Sacramento Gay Men’s Chorus.”
Please join us in welcoming Christian Bohm to the SGMC family!
