Brighton Gay Men’s Chorus (BrightonGMC) is holding a New Members’ Evening on Tuesday, January 26 2016, 7:00pm at the Brighton Unitarian Church, New Road, Brighton.
After celebrating their 10th Anniversary in 2015, the chorus are looking forward to the challenge of the next ten years with great excitement!
The New Members’ Evening will also include a rehearsal, so if you’re interested to know what it’s like being in the Chorus and meet the existing members, this is the perfect opportunity for you. There is no obligation to join and there is no audition!
James who joined the Chorus in January 2015 said: “As a bit of an introvert I usually shy away from joining groups but I’m glad I got over this to join the Chorus as I have found everyone involved extremely friendly and welcoming. The experience has not only opened up a hobby that I thoroughly enjoy, but is personally helping to build my self-confidence”
Brighton Gay Men’s Chorus is a space where people can celebrate music, celebrate their sexuality, enjoy the fellowship of other like-minded people and contribute to the local communities it’s a part of.
The Chorus is a registered charity with three guiding principles, their “Three S’s”:
♦ Singing – the celebration of life and music through male voice harmonies;
♦ Socialising – using this activity to develop social bonds that help people to feel connected with a sometimes lonely world; and
♦ Support – to be there for each other – both collectively and individually – when the chips are down, and to be there for the communities in which the chorus operates, too.
Vaughan Leyshon, Membership Coordinator for the Chorus, said: “The Chorus has grown steadily over the last ten years and is currently going from strength to strength – performing at a high standard, pushing its creative boundaries and playing an important role in the local community. We’re really happy to welcome new members as we embark on the next chapter in our story”
Membership is open to anyone who self-identifies as a gay or gay-friendly man.
