"Sing With Us" Palm Springs Gay Men's Chorus To Hold Auditions


Mid-year through its 19th Season, The Palm Springs Gay Men's Chorus (PSGMC) will be holding open call auditions Tuesday, January 9, 2018 at 7:00 PM at Mizell Senior Center, 480 South Sunrise Way in Palm Springs. This special evening of camaraderie will also be an opportunity to volunteer and get involved with one of the chorus' many committees. Interested singers can also attend open rehearsals on Tuesdays, January 16 and 23 at 7:00 PM to get a feel of what it's like to perform with the chorus and meet the members. 
 
The "Sing With Us" campaign stems from the chorus' tight knit group of men who are passionate about performing and entertaining at civic and private events throughout the cities of the Coachella Valley.  
 
"In our continued effort to "Build a Chorus Like No Other," the PSGMC is always committed to a high standard of excellence in our performances. For this audition, we will not only be recruiting singers for the main chorus, but also for our small ensemble group "The Arrangement." It is an easy and painless process with the main aspect of the audition is that a singer is required to match pitch," said Douglas Wilson, Artistic Director, PSGMC.
 
The chorus is an auditioned, volunteer choral ensemble consisting of male singers age eighteen and older, gay or gay friendly.  With a wide range of varying musical training and backgrounds, the chorus is committed to fostering an environment of professionalism, respect, pride and unity. 
 
The Palm Springs Gay Men's Chorus is comprised of gay and straight-allied men of all ethnicities. As we grow our membership and continue to build diversity, we encourage the Trans Community, if you identify as a man and sing in the tenor or bass range, to audition for the chorus. 
 
The mission of the PSGMC is to be a chorus of gay men, who through musical excellence, community outreach, and civic responsibility, are dedicated to entertaining, inspiring, and educating the culturally diverse community in which we live.
