Miami Gay Mens Chorus 20 Reasons Why

$2,215 of $20,000 goal

Raised by 38 people in 5 months
Hello Friends and Family!

We are seeking support in a very difficult time for us. It's an unconventional request but one we hope you can help us with.

We are currently celebrating our 20th anniversary. Our holiday concerts are December 15 & 16, but we're finding ourselves in a position unlike any we've faced before. To put it plainly, this may be our last concert if we cannot come up with the necessary funds to continue operating come the new year.

We know the struggle is familiar for many of you and it's in such difficult times we all look towards our family, be it the one we were born into or our chosen ones, to be lifted back up.

We humbly come to you, beloved friends and family, in the hopes you can make a donation towards our "20 Reasons Why" campaign. The goal is to raise $20,000 by year's end to help us continue celebrating our 20th anniversary season after our holiday concert. These funds will help with operating costs and the production of the South Florida premier of "Stonewall 50," a joint concert with the Gay Men's Chorus of South Florida and Ft. Lauderdale Gay Men's Chorus commemorating the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall riots.

Throughout the campaign our members will be sharing their reasons for joining the chorus. We hope these reasons will help inspire you to contribute any amount you can towards helping the Miami Gay Men's Chorus continue its mission of inspiring and changing lives through the power of music for another 20 years and beyond.

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

Joe joined us a few weeks before our holiday concert. He dove right into the deep end joining our Tenor I.......nope, Tenor II (wink) section!

Full text: "Choral music is my number one passion. I find the most pleasure when singing with a group of people who come together to create something unique and special. Having recently moved to Miami, I've been searching for a group where I can find community and make music. I was committed to finding a place where I can enjoy the camaraderie as much as the music making process. At my first rehearsal with MGMC, we ended the night by standing in a circle, hand in hand, while the chorus sang a song of love over one another. That was the moment I know that this is where I needed to be."
