Since 1999, the Palm Springs Gay Men’s Chorus (PSGMC) has given back to its community through the Gay/Straight Alliance anti-bullying grants from the George Zander Memorial Fund for the Palm Springs and Desert Sands Unified School Districts.
For the 20th Anniversary season of PSGMC, we have performed for a variety of large-scale and community events including: La Quinta Arts Festival, Indio Woman’s Club, Cathedral City LGBT Days, Harvey Milk Diversity Breakfast and Raymond Cree Middle School Harvey Milk Day, Sunday Sounds at Palm Desert Community Center. In June, PSGMC sang at Carnegie Hall and in August we will sing at Walt Disney Hall both instances for the 50th Anniversary of the Stonewall Uprising with a 8-movement commissioned work “Quiet No More – A Choral Celebration of Stonewall,” in collaboration with 17 other LGBTQ choruses.
In 2018, the Chorus was given the recognition by Mayor Robert Moon as the Official Gay Men’s Chorus of the City of Palm Springs and April 8 was declared Palm Springs Gay Men’s Chorus Day.
PSGMC is under the Artistic Direction of Douglas Wilson with Principal Accompanist Joel Baker. Visit www.PSGMC.com.

Quiet No More: A Choral Celebration of Stonewall
NYCGMC commemorates the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Uprising in NYC, as well as the 40th anniversary of the founding of NYCGMC, with a brand new choral music suite, co-commissioned by NYCGMC and the Gay Men’s Chorus of Los Angeles. The piece will have performances by choruses throughout the US in 2019, the largest collaboration in the history of LGBTQ choruses.
This new piece celebrates the legacy and worldwide changes that started from the events in June 1969. The protests at Stonewall lit the fire for PRIDE, the effects of which are still as vital today as they were 50 years ago. Quiet No More: A Choral Celebration of Stonewall50 marks the occasion of the first ever World Pride in New York, and is the Pride Month event you can’t miss.
Quiet No More features the voices of a group of diverse LGBTQ composers, including Julian Hornik (Dear Evan Hansen); Our Lady J (Pose, Transparent); Mike Shaieb (Through A Glass Darkly); Ann Hampton Callaway (singer/song-writer); Michael McElroy (Broadway Inspirational Voices, Rent); and Jane Ramseyer Miller (One Voice Chorus).
