7 January, and The Old Jiangsu University of Culture (江苏老文化大学), which is now the Jiangsu Centre for Culture in Nanjing, hosted its First performance of the New Jump Choir Group, to rave reviews. The group is made up of 26 members from Nanjing’s LGBT community. As choir ensembles go, it was a treat; it is not often the expat community in Nanjing gets a glimpse at local performances such as this. Not one song was sung out of tune, every baritone and soprano totally in sync; it was clear this choir has not only dedicated themselves seriously to their practice, but also put forth a real passion for their chosen hobby. Each member comes from varying backgrounds, ranging from students to teachers and doctors.
