I joined the Boston Gay Men's Chorus (BGMC) three years ago and it's become a major part of my life. That's why I'm so excited to attend the GALA Festival in July where LGBTQ will perform for and learn from each other! However, the costs of the registration, hotels, and flights all add up so I'm asking my friends and family to donate to BGMC to help lessen the costs. If you can give anything it will be very much appreciated!
"Boston Gay Men's Chorus is one of the largest choruses in the LGBTQ+ choral GALA. Since its founding in 1982 BGMC has participated and been a leader within GALA Choruses, the association of 200+ LGBTQ choral organizations in North America. GALA Festival is a quadrennial event that brings together LGBTQ+ choruses from around the world to share expertise, perform and to change the world through song. It is the world's largest music festival. In July 2020 BGMC is proud to attend Festival in Minneapolis, MN. BGMC will bring 125+ members to the Twin Cities to represent Boston and to tell our stories through our music. In 2016 BGMC's performance was standing room only. For 2020 choristers from around the world are looking to see what BGMC brings. The Chorus provides scholarship support for those members in need. It is expected that the direct costs for each member (travel, registration, etc.) are $1,500. Please support a specific singer or support the overall scholarship program so that we can create a musical experience at Festival 2020 that inspires change, builds community and celebrates difference."
