Denver Gay Men's Chorus
The Denver Gay Men’s Chorus was established in 1982 with a passionate commitment to LGBT people, to build community and foster acceptance, diversity and tolerance thorough music. It was the first openly gay arts organization in Denver and the Rocky Mountain region. This premiere, auditioned 100-voice community chorus has performed more than 125 concerts in its 35-year history, remaining true to its mission of entertaining, educating, inspiring and empowering audiences. DGMC has collaborated with artists such as Margaret Cho, Ann Hampton Callaway, and the Colorado Symphony and has worked with the Matthew Shepard Foundation and the University of Denver, Lamont School of Music. DGMC has recorded two commercial CDs and has a devoted commitment to the commissioning of new works, the most notable being “I Am Harvey Milk” by Broadway’s Andrew Lippa. This 60-minute oratorio, scored for three soloists, men’s chorus and orchestra premiered last June at Gates Concert Hall to a sold out audience receiving high critical acclaim. Most recently, Mayor Michael B. Hancock proclaiming June 12, 2014 as Denver Gay Men’s Chorus Day honored the chorus as a respected leader in the arts community, significantly enriching the cultural life of the city while serving as a messenger of social justice and change. The chorus produces three concert series per season and sings over 15 community outreach events each year. DGMC is a member of GALA Choruses, a LGBT choral organization made up of over 180 choruses and 10,000 singers worldwide.
