The PSGMC is excited to announce its 2018-19 season of shows that will appeal to a wide spectrum of audiences. Season tickets are now available at www.PSGMC.com and are strongly suggested as it ensures the best seats, it’s the most economical and the shows are expected to sell out. Discounted group tickets of 10 or more are available by emailing jeffhocker1@gmail.com.
PSGMC’s shows will be performed at the Palm Springs Art Museum Annenberg Theater, the home of the Palm Springs Gay Men’s Chorus. This remarkable venue recently went through a major renovation including state-of-the-art sound and lighting.
“PSGMC, the official Gay Chorus of the City of Palm Springs is a family that not only join together in excellent musicianship, but the audience is taken through a world of emotions. We sing songs of joy and peace. We sing songs of love, hope and compassion. We sometimes sing songs of anger and ask for a change. We aim for excellence and a wonderful “show” experience for our audiences,remarked Douglas Wilson, Artistic Director, PSGMC.

June 2019 will mark the 50th Anniversary of The Stonewall Uprising. PSGMC has joined with 20 choruses throughout the United States to commemorate this pivotal point in the LGBT movement by commissioning a major choral work to tell the story of the men and women who banded together for a common cause.
In addition to this commissioned work, PSGMC will perform songs, which have inspired people to work for equality and freedom for all. “Quiet No More” will celebrate the bravery of suffragettes, the dedication of blue and grey collar workers. The work of Harriet Tubman, an abolitionist and political activist, who freed slaves through the Underground Railroad and the peaceful protests of Martin Luther King, Jr. Songs of joy and humor will describe the perseverance of the many men and women who continue to advocate for the full acceptance of LGBT people in society.
The mission of the Palm Springs Gay Men’s Chorus 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.
