We are entering our 21st year – and we’re doing GREAT!

We rehearse at 7:00 PM on Thursday evenings!

The organization is committed to fostering an environment of professionalism, respect, pride and unity. Members are welcome regardless of sexual orientation. We are committed to creating and maintaining a loving and supportive group of gay and gay-friendly persons with a common goal of singing for and reaching out to the community.
