Diverse Harmony is the nation’s first queer-straight* alliance youth chorus. Based in Seattle, Washington, their 58-member chorus presents music that opens the hearts and minds of communities and provides a safe environment for youth of diverse backgrounds to share their love of music and be accepted for who they are.
Over thirteen seasons, they have brought performances to communities throughout Seattle in their regular two-concert season. The chorus has also performed tours to Denver, Chicago, Montreal, Miami, and Portland. Diverse Harmony is a member of GALA Choruses (the Gay and Lesbian Association of Choruses) and is considered a leading youth chorus among its membership due to their longevity and large membership.
In tandem with their successful performances, Diverse Harmony serves as a safe space for their singers, youth age 13 to 22 who identify as queer, gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, questioning, and allied. Weekly rehearsals have become a home base for many of the youth where they can feel respected and accepted, and have fun making music together.
