"Please Don't Touch Me" performed by GMCW (virtual chorus)

New video! Arranged by Robert T. Boaz, here is one of GMCW's vocal ensembles, Potomac Fever, singing "Please Don’t Touch Me" from the Mel Brooks' musical "Young Frankenstein." Words and music by Mel Brooks. On Monday September 23, 2019, Robert T. Boaz, known affectionately by the world as Bobby T, passed away at the age of 49. Bobby was born, raised, and educated in Searcy, Arkansas, and eventually made his home in the DC area, where he became an enduring and integral part of the Gay Men’s Chorus of Washington, DC, performing with the Chorus at large, and as a long-standing member of the small a cappella ensemble Potomac Fever. He was an avid composer, and his arrangements were performed by the chorus yearly. If you’d like to make a contribution in Bobby T’s memory to the Robert T. Boaz Music Fund, please visit www.gmcw.org

Due to C19, this is the first year in more than a decade without an LGBT Veterans Day Observance at Congressional Cemetery. But we look back with great appreciation to the moving performances of the Chorus under Director Thea Kano at the 2015 Observance when the Veterans Administration cenotaph to WWII veteran and father of the modern gay rights movement Frank Kameny was dedicated.
