Welcome to my GALA 2016 Festival pages. GALA Choruses leads the North American GLBT choral movement. They cultivate the artistic development of 10,000 singers from more than 190 choruses in the United States, Mexico, and Canada. Choruses are an integral and historical part of the LGBTIQ community, although perhaps not as well known within mainstream culture.
This was the first year for the Sacramento Women's Chorus to perform at this event, along with the Sacramento Gay Men's Chorus. Here are my images of the chorus and various other concerts and activities. What a wonderful event! Beyond the safe, creative space it provides for LGBTIQ people (and their supportive allies), the choruses movement helps preserve, expand and celebrate the invaluable contributions of vocal music in our culture.
