GMCLA Marks Decade of the Alive Music Project

GMCLA Kicks Off Alive Music Project’s New Season at Boyle Heights’ Roosevelt High School on October 14th, 2016

(LOS ANGELES) – OCT. 4, 2016 – On October 14th, the Gay Men’s Chorus of Los Angeles (GMCLA) will kick off the 10th year of its Alive Music Project, the country’s most expansive school outreach and music education program for LGBTQ youth at Roosevelt High School in the East L.A. community of Boyle Heights.

Concentrating on schools throughout Southern California, the program connects and engages students by facilitating significant dialogue through music and directly with chorus members to create a safe space on campus, as well as through master classes and workshops with GMCLA’s Artistic Director Dr. Joe Nadeau and a combined performance

Since launching in 2007, GMCLA has reached a staggering 50,000 students directly through its Alive Music Project, and looks forward to considerably increasing that number during its next season.
