Our History

The Sacramento Gay Men’s Chorus was founded in 1984 as a singing group that aimed to foster a sense of community and provide support for gays and lesbians in the Sacramento area.

Over the past 30 years, through musical performance and outreach programs, the chorus has grown to become an integral part of the Sacramento music community, as well as a voice for the gay and lesbian community in the greater Sacramento area. With that voice, SGMC has confronted intolerance and bigotry by providing a positive experience of the gay community.

The Sacramento Gay Men’s Chorus strives to create a fun environment for gay men who enjoy making music together. The chorus has grown to 70 members and is focused on both musical excellence and dynamic choralography.

The SGMC season begins in September and ends in June. During the course of the year, the chorus puts on several staged concerts and also sings at numerous community benefit events. Come join us for one of our shows in the 2014-2015 season as we celebrate our 30th year of making music!
