Who We Are
The Harrisburg Gay Men's Chorus was founded in 1987 and celebrates the LGBT experience in the central Pennsylvania region and beyond, delighting and entertaining audiences with fun, vibrant and gay-positive musical programs. It is comprised of men from diverse paths and origins, uniting in spirit with a common love of music to build bridges of understanding in our community through our music and public outreach efforts. We challenge ourselves to grow in integrity, harmony and appreciation of our individual gifts of music, while creating experiences that entertain, empower and enlighten all those that hear our song.
The chorus has literally traveled from one end of the country to the other to perform.....from Carnegie Hall in New York, NY to the Civic Auditorium in San Jose, CA - with many locations in between. In September 1999, the Harrisburg Gay Men's Chorus became a resident choral company of the Whitaker Center in Harrisburg, and has hosted and performed with several nationally acclaimed performers such as opera soprano Marilyn Horne, jazz singer, song writer, actress Ann Hampton Callaway and singer, songwriter Judy Collins.
We are proud to be a member of The Gay and Lesbian Association of Choruses (GALA), an international association of over 170 LGBT choruses that aspire to help change the world through song.
