GMCLA turns 40
Since 1979, Gay Men’s Chorus of Los Angeles has been a beloved, world-class performing arts ensemble. Whether fighting for the LGBTQ+ community, standing up for those in need, helping those impacted by the AIDS crisis, or fighting for the right to marry, we have made our collective voices heard. All across greater Los Angeles and throughout the world, we have been lauded for the sound we create as well as the impact we make. We are especially committed to young people throughout Southern California; we do all we can through our singing and speaking, on stages and in classrooms, to raise them up in an atmosphere of beautiful music, acceptance and understanding.
And STONEWALL is 50
In the early hours of June 28, 1969, New York City police raided the Stonewall Inn, a gay club located in New York’s Greenwich Village. The raid sparked a riot among bar patrons that lead to six days of protests and clashes with law enforcement in the area. The Stonewall Riots served as the catalyst for the modern Gay Rights Movement in the United States and around the world. To commemorate the 50th anniversary of this historic event, GMCLA has joined with the New York City Gay Men’s Chorus and other choruses around the country to remember this milestone event with the commission of a glorious new work. QUIET NO MORE will be performed on our Gala Concert by 500 singers and musicians in a truly spectacular musical tribute.
