Based in New York City, the Stonewall Chorale is the nation's first gay and lesbian chorus.
The Stonewall Chorale is committed to singing the great classical repertoire, but we also sing an eclectic array of music from all periods and styles.
Cynthia Powell leads us as our Artistic Director and we typically perform three concerts each year and make appearances at special events throughout the tri-state area.
Note: The Stonewall Chorale welcomes members of and allies to the LGBTQ community and does not base membership on sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, or gender expression.
The Chorale originated in December 1977 as the Gotham Male Chorus, and specialized in Gregorian Chant and Renaissance music. In 1979, women joined the chorus for the first time, and the name was changed to Stonewall Chorale, the nation’s first Lesbian and Gay chorus.
