Welcome to the Rochester Gay Men's Chorus
Welcome to the home of the Rochester Gay Men’s Chorus. For more than 30 years the RGMC has exemplified excellence in choral arts by serving the Greater Rochester Community as well as all of Western New York.
We currently perform three concerts annually and also participate in many other public appearances throughout the community. Through the passion of our music, our goal is to touch the hearts and souls of all those who listen.
First Rehearsal April 3
The first rehearsal for our next concert, Send in the Crowns, will be Thursday, April 3 at 7 p.m. New member voice placements will be held starting at 6:30 p.m. Repertoire for the cycle include popular songs made famous by the Queen of Soul, the King and Queen of Pop, the First Lady of Song, the King himself, and many other rock royalty.
Rehearsals are held every Thursday evening from 7:00 to 9:30 PM, on the second floor of the Downtown United Presbyterian Church, 121 North Fitzhugh Street in downtown Rochester, NY, with an rehearsal retreat once a cycle on a weekend. Come sing with us! Click here for more information.
Our Annual Fundraiser May 10th
With Mistress of Ceremonies Darienne Lake
Rochester Gay Men’s Chorus has set the date for its spring fundraiser, “More Than Us!” on Saturday evening, May 10. The event will feature dinner and a musical revue starring the Chorus and some of our talented friends (hence there being “more than us” on stage entertaining you…).
The Mistress of Ceremonies will be Darienne Lake, who has long been loved by Rochester audiences but now has a strong national following, as she a contestant this spring on popular TV reality show “RuPaul’s Drag Race.”
The event location will wonderfully showcase the evening of entertainment — the Zeppa Auditorium in the Historic German House. In addition to RGMC, musical numbers will be presented by performers from Women of Note, Webster Theatre Guild, Give to Live Rochester, and Blackfriars Theatre.
“More Than Us!” also will feature silent and live auctions. Tickets are $55 each and are on sale now. The ticket includes dinner, dessert, and show. The cash bar and doors open at 6 p.m., with dinner served at 7 p.m. and curtain at 7:30 p.m.
Sponsorships are available at levels of $250, $500, and $1,000.
