We're all about the music.
But there's a lot more to us
The Long Island Gay Men's
Chorus is also about entertaining our audiences with
high-quality male choral performances, and affirming the
contributions of Long Island's gay community.
Our programming includes
challenging, contemporary music, and performances of an
ambitious, traditional repertoire alongside music from
various world cultures. The programming focuses on a
wide variety of choral music from all time periods, and
presenting styles that educate, challenge, and enlighten
both our audiences and our singing membership.
The Chorus affirms, by example
and through song, the worth and dignity of a
cross-section of the diverse population that is
reflective of Long Island and our nation as a whole,
incorporating music that positively represents the gay
community and openly supports issues related to human
equality and justice.
The Chorus looks forward to
including in our repertoire commissions of new works
that celebrate local artists and create a unique and
defining sound that is exclusively LIGMC.
Watch for audition notices to be posted here! Email
you are interested in auditioning for the Long Island
Gay Men's Chorus!
The audition is simply a chance to introduce
yourself to the Artistic Director and to let him get to
know you and your vocal abilities. Auditions take about
an hour and are as relaxed, friendly, and informal
as we can make them. Our main goal is to assess your
musical abilities, specifically, in singing in an
ensemble situation. Everyone in the Chorus has different
levels of singing and music-reading ability; therefore, there's no need to
feel that you aren't "good enough."
The Artistic Director will let you know how you did and
whether you will be offered membership in the Chorus. It
may take a day or so before we get back to you. For more information, phone
