GALA FESTIVAL 2020
GALA Choruses, the Gay and Lesbian Association of Choruses, leads the North American LGBTQ choral movement, and the PGMC is proud to be a member chorus. GALA Choruses is comprised of more than 170 member choruses, which amounts to over 8,000 singers. The organization is dedicated to helping choruses become more effective, both artistically and administratively. GALA Choruses' signature event is their quadrennial Festival, which brings together singers for the world's largest LGBTQ performing arts event.
GALA Choruses will be holding its eleventh quadrennial Festival in July of 2020 in Minneapolis, Minnesota. We will be proud to represent the city of Providence and the state of Rhode Island. In 2012, when we last attended GALA, a record-breaking 6,100 singers and delegates attended, representing 112 performing choruses and an additional 48 small ensembles and the 2020 Festival promises to be even bigger and better. With nearly round-the-clock performances held simultaneously in three performance venues, GALA Festival hosts more than 200 hours of choral performances. Festival highlights typical include a classical masterworks sing-along, a retrospective concert of 30 years of choral commissions, and morning "Coffee Concerts" featuring fully staged performances by selected ensembles.
