In 1977, a small group of gay men with a particular interest in renaissance and Gregorian chant formed the Gotham Male Chorus. Two years later, they grew their numbers with the addition of women's voices, forming the country's first gay and lesbian chorus: The Stonewall Chorale.
The Stonewall Chorale is among the various LGBTQ interest groups that emerged in major cities and proved crucial to creating support networks during the AIDS crisis. Stonewall has performed in public, community, civic, and corporate venues, and remained – through four decades – a reminder of the power of music to foster community.
As the nation's first gay and lesbian chorus, The Stonewall Chorale occupies a unique space in New York City.
We are artists who celebrate the GLBT community and we believe in the power of music to heal the soul and bring hope in the darkest times.
We invite you to support our extraordinary leadership, exceptional music, and place in the GLBT community as we raise funds towards singer scholarships.
Stand with us as we change the world, one concert at a time.
