Sing With Us

Join the RGMC throughout the year as we sing and perform in the Rochester area. Better yet, come and join the chorus and sing along! Rehearsals are held on Thursday evenings, from 7 to 9:30 pm, on the second floor of the Downtown United Presbyterian Church (DUPC), 121 North Fitzhugh Street in downtown Rochester, NY, with a rehearsal retreat once a cycle on a weekend.

The RGMC invites all who are interested in singing to attend voice placement. During voice placement, our Artistic Director, Dr. Robert Strauss, will take a few minutes to listen to your range and voice type using some simple vocalization. The voice placement is also an opportunity to chat with Rob about what you'd like to gain from your choral experience with RGMC and to discuss the most effective ways for you to contribute to the ensemble. 

Please e-mail Dr. Strauss with any questions or to schedule an appointment for voice placement. Come sing with us!


Rochester’s got TALENT! If you’ve not been to a Rochester Gay Men’s Chorus Concert you’ve been missing one of Rochester’s sought-after attractions – a dance troupe known as the “Rochettes”.

The Rochettes have been a part of RGMC’s concerts for over 20 years. These multi-talented, imaginative men not only sing, but also swing and sway, bump and grind, and tap dance into your hearts. Their tightly-choreographed moves are truly show-stopping!

Over the years they have touched on all kinds of dance from Tap, Swing, Jazz, Character, Country, Waltz, Broadway, Disco, Hip Hop, Lip-Sync, and many more.  They continue to find ways to entertain and inspire their audience! Come and join them at a future concert, and see why RGMC and the “Rochettes” are all the rave!

Want more information on how to join the Rochettes?  Email Dr. Robert Strauss to learn more.
