A big portion of our outreach next season will see us performing as part of the national tour of “It Gets Better”, this September at the Long Center here in Austin.
On May 9th, 2013, the LGBTQ and ally community will come together for Give OUT Day, and we need YOU to join us. It is 24 hours of unprecedented LGBTQ giving and it’s your chance make a real difference, right here in OUR community.

We are holding open auditions for our 25th anniversary season, on April 29th!

Auditions consist of you vocalizing a few notes for our Artistic Director, so that he may place you in the correct voice part of the chorus. You may bring a prepared piece to perform, but it is not necessary.
We are currently rehearsing some music to be performed at the Long Center, in September, in conjunction with the “It Gets Better” project. The remainder of our rehearsals will continue through May 20th. We will then be on break until August 19th, when regular rehearsals will resume for our 25th Anniversary Season!
It is going to be a busy season for the chorus, as we look back to our roots, examine where we are today, and look forward to an even brighter future!
