It all started in September, 2010 as the dream of a few men who wanted to make high quality music, encourage positive social change and make the world a better place for LGBTQ people. Now celebrating our 10 year anniversary, the Chorus has grown to over 130 men, becoming the largest gay men’s chorus in the Southeast. We sing so that LGBTQ+ people can live their truth through quality music experiences that inspire audiences, open minds, change hearts and affirm our common humanity.
The Chorus has become one of the region’s largest and most successful community-based choruses celebrated for outstanding musicianship, creative programming, and community outreach. Each year GMCSF reaches over 20,000 audience members with its messages of love and inclusion. The Chorus has performed at the World Performing Arts Center at Lynn University, to a sold out house at Bailey Hall at Broward College with special guest artist, Ann Hampton Callaway, and at the GALA Music Festival in 2012 and 2016. In 2013 PBS station WLRN filmed and presented to the community Heaven and Nature Sing, the Chorus’s sold-out holiday concert. Recent holiday concerts have been hosted by Hard Rock Live at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Hollywood, FL with special guest artists including Alan Cumming, Matthew Morrison, and Jordin Sparks. in 2020 GMCSF was invited to perform at the NFL Live fan fest in Miami.
The Chorus has also been determined to give back to the community that has supported and nurtured its success and growth during these 10 years by providing over two-thousand teddy bears to the Broward County Hospitals Pediatric Auxiliary each year; chaperoning at a gay youth prom; and walking and raising money for the AIDS walk. The Chorus has also volunteered bowling for Poverello, a local charity providing food and clothing to those living with HIV/AIDS, collected plastic caps and lids for Caps of Love to provide wheelchairs to disabled children,, performed at Temple Sinai’s Holocaust remembrance ceremony, provided performances to the Stonewall National Museum & Archives 207 gala, and performed with The Exceptional Theatre Company in addition to donating time and talent to a host of other charitable endeavors in our community.
