For many of our members, singing together is not just a hobby or a social outlet; it is the defining essence of who we are as people and as spiritual beings. Singing together creates a space where we express not only our own identities, feelings and beliefs, but those of our greater LGBTQ community. We celebrate, mourn, reflect, exhort and sometimes raise our voices in anger. Sometimes we sing for those who no longer can.

The Asheville Gay Men’s Chorus entertains, advocates and connects community through choral excellence.

     Our primary goals are:

  • To achieve excellence in musical performance. AVLGMC continues its long tradition of excellence in music. We produce performances showcasing music from a variety of genres including classical, cabaret and spiritual. Our aim is to provide our audience with a quality experience.
  • To enrich the lives of participants through social and fellowship experiences. AVLGMC is a family of singers. Proud, diverse and experienced, our members are brothers working together to broaden our friendships.
  • To foster LGBTQ community spirit and present a positive gay image to the community at large. AVLGMC serves as ambassadors for our community and provides a positive image in all our performances. Music is a universal language and we take great pride in providing our voices for change, comfort and education.
