Dear Friends and Supporters,
We have exciting news: we have a new name! Effective January 1, 2021, we are now known as the Rhode Island Gay Men’s Chorus.
As the one and only gay men’s chorus in the great state of Rhode Island, we take our mission statement very seriously: we are a gathering of individuals who, united through diversity, fellowship and song, strive to make a difference in the lives of our singers and our audience.
The past few years have been a profound time of growth for us. Our audiences have grown, our concerts are bigger and better than ever, we have extended our community outreach, and we are performing in venues all over the state. As we embark on our 25th anniversary year, it is time to expand our horizons. As the Rhode Island Gay Men’s Chorus (RIGMC), we will truly represent all of us and all of you. You are why we sing!
Our vision is strong: we seek to build a world where musical beauty, creativity, and expression are experienced, valued, and nurtured. Our world is expanding and it is time to reflect that in our name and in our brand. You can see our new logo throughout this website and in our social media platforms. The changes may seem slight, but the magnitude is huge. We invite you to join us in celebrating this exciting change!
Regarding our current situation during the COVID-19 pandemic: closing our doors since March has been very difficult. As a small non-profit chorus, we depend on our ticket sales for the majority of our income. To those of you who have donated to our 25th anniversary campaign, we say a huge thank you. We couldn’t get through this without your amazing show of support.
Please continue to follow us on social media and here on our website for all updates regarding our musical future (be sure to change your bookmarks to RIGMC!).
We miss you and we miss making music. We look forward to the time when we reconvene, reconnect and start rehearsing again. Stay tuned – We will be back!
