NGMC is proud to be a member of GALA Choruses, the Gay and Lesbian Association of Choruses, which leads the North American LGBT choral Movement.
GALA Choruses assists more than 170 member choruses and 8,000 singers with support and leadership, helping those choruses become more effective, both artistically and administratively.
They assist emerging choruses and facilitate networking and training for established groups. Currently, GALA Choruses is putting special focus on the implementation of programming that will assess and improve the sustainability of their member choruses. GALA Choruses’ signature event is their quadrennial Festival, which brings together over 130 choruses and 5000 singers for the world’s largest LGBT performing arts event. NGMC is hopeful that, with support from our community and friends, we can attend GALA Festival 2016.
GALA Choruses has an extensive resource center designed to assist Artistic Directors, Chorus Managers, Chorus Members and Board Members develop or fine tune their skill sets. Strategic direction in everything from programming concerts to writing budgets and running community outreach programs is available through the GALA Choruses research library.
