The RGMC Wows Audiences at GALA Denver 2016
Twenty-one members of the Rochester Gay Men’s Chorus traveled to Denver, Colorado, July 2-6 to give Rochester strong representation at the tenth quadrennial Gay and Lesbian Association of Choruses (GALA Choruses) Festival. In addition to performing at the festival, the group had the opportunity to network with gay and lesbian choruses from around the country — large and small, new and seasoned — swapping stories and best practices to help each other grow. It was a week of community building and deeply rooted support, much appreciated by all those in attendance.
