About the Chorus:

The Gay Men’s Chorus of Houston continues to be the most visible face of diversity in the Bayou City since it was founded nearly 30 years ago.  Membership has grown to more than 100 singers and 40 volunteers in recent years. Members are from all backgrounds, income levels, and vocations.  Some have studied voice and/or music, while others have never sung in a chorus before. The age range of the Gay Men’s Chorus has included teenagers to those in their 60s. 

GMCH performs three major concerts and at least one outreach concert per season.  The chorus also tours occasionally.

About the Ticket Supplier: Bayou City Performing Arts

Bayou City Performing Arts (BCPA) was founded as the Montrose Singers, Inc. in November of 1979. Led by founding director Andy Mills, the Houston based men’s chorus met with early successes marked by lavish productions at the Tower Theatre, performing with as many as 80 singing members. The BCPA family of choruses has expanded to include Gay Men’s Chorus of Houston (GMCH), Bayou City Women’s Chorus (BCWC), Bayou City Chorale (BCC), and Bayou Rhythms. 2010/2011 marks BCPA’s 32nd anniversary of continuous performances. BCPA has been termed “the best face of diversity in Houston,” widely respected for community leadership in inclusion and diversity, and continues to provide opportunities for a wide range of Houstonians, fulfilling its mission of excellence in music – coupled with unity and pride.
