Thorgy Thor, the violin playing queen from Season 8 of RuPaul’s Drag Race and Season 3 of RuPaul’s Drag Race All-Stars, recently accomplished the long-held dream of performing for a professional orchestra in drag this past Friday and Saturday. Thorgy Thor performed for Symphony Novia Scotia in a sold-out performance at the Rebecca Cohn Auditorium in Halifax, Canada. The drag performer hopes to hold a Thorgy Thor orchestra (or Thorchestra) in other world cities through his life.

Not only did the self-proclaimed “queen of classical music” perform music from gay pop icons Lady Gaga and Madonna, but Thorgy also reportedly performed classics from gay Russian composer Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky (best known for composing The Nutcracker and Swan Lake).

After Thorgy Thor completed his two performances, he held a meet-and-greet with fans and excitedly proclaimed his hopes to perform similar concerts in every major world city.
