Gala Choruses

Founded in 1982 by fourteen choruses, GALA Choruses has become the leading international association of gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, and allied choruses. The mission of GALA Choruses is to inspire and strengthen member choruses to change their worlds through song. 

By fostering the artistic and organizational development of member choruses through a wide variety of programs and services, GALA Choruses produces choral festivals, educational conferences, and several publications.

They engage in advocacy, provide grants for the commissioning of new choral works, facilitate networking within the Association, and serve as a resource center for choruses and individual associates from around the world.
