I Am The Chorus

by Rochester Gay Men's Chorus

About this campaign

Your Rochester Gay Men’s Chorus is celebrating its 36th year of singing and we have supporters like you to thank for it. In the last 36 years, we have had hundreds of singers, thousands of season and show ticket holders, a wide range of financial supporters, and you, helping to make the RGMC an integral part of our community as one of the first LGBTQ choruses. As we are preparing to present Finding Oz in May at the School of the Arts and our first (hopefully to be annual) July Pride Concert in collaboration with the Out Alliance, we are excited to celebrate your role as a supporter of the RGMC. I am proud to present our I am the Chorus campaign. An idea from one of our members, I am the Chorus recognizes the invaluable contributions and support from people like you. There have been so many impactful experiences which have shaped the RGMC into the chorus it is today and it continues to evolve and grow with each passing year. Your involvement, support, and presence in our choral history is a story we cherish and want to recognize. I am the Chorus is our chance to include everyone in our legacy and our future. With your donation you’ll find space to write a line or two about your story. I’ll start it off as an example. “I joined the chorus when I moved back to Rochester to meet new friends and get involved in the LGBTQ community. My name is Ted. I am the Chorus.” Your message can be singular or plural; just you, you and a spouse/partner, even a group or business. We will share everyone’s messages on our social media, website, and at our upcoming concerts and events. On social media, look for the hashtag #iamthechorus as we compile and share all our reasons why we are part of and support the RGMC. Please consider donating in any amount in support of the chorus. Your financial support will help us achieve our I am the Chorus campaign goal of $7,500 and support our mission of social change through excellence in the choral arts. Your story is important to us as well, so please include why you are a part of the Rochester Gay Men’s. On behalf of the RGMC, thank you for your generous support and for being a part of the Rochester Gay Men’s Chorus family.
