Changing hearts and minds through music.
The Atlanta Gay Men’s Chorus and the Atlanta Women’s Chorus, through Voices of Note, presents entertaining and thought-provoking performances that appeal to a diverse audience and promote equality for all people.
Voices of Note is many things to many people. To its audiences, and at its core, it delivers an experience defined by musical excellence. But through this experience, it is also much, much more: It’s a catalyst for social change. It’s an opportunity to be inspired. It’s a journey into places within our hearts and minds that have yet to be explored. It’s a voyage outside of oneself and into the perspective of others: your neighbors, your teachers, your sisters, your friends.
But Voices of Note is what it is to its audiences because of what it means to its members. To the membership of each chorus, it is a community united. A community brought together by a common purpose: a passion for excellence in vocal performance, a thirst for equality of all peoples, and a belief that music is the most effective way to deliver that message.
This ideal is conveyed through the dynamic performances of the Atlanta Gay Men’s Chorus and the Atlanta Women’s Chorus, each with its own identity, but unified in a common goal. Through these two talented ensembles, indeed voices of note, together we are changing hearts and minds through music.
The Atlanta Gay Men’s Chorus aspires to be recognized not only as one of the finest male choral ensembles on the globe, but also as a leader in the realm of social change and the betterment of all people. These goals are evidenced by the presentation of empowering performances in the Atlanta community, the state of Georgia, the Southeastern U.S. and countries abroad, where it will present the finest of musical performances and deliver powerful messages of equality for humankind.
By establishing a highly-effective infrastructure that empowers, emboldens, and illuminates the talent, skill, and diversity of its membership, the chorus strives to create a unique and collaborative working environment among its members, demonstrating how people of different ethnicities, religions, education, and belief systems can come together to create a safe, embracing, and productive community for all.
Sharing a love of music, the joy of performing, and a commitment to excellence in the community are the chief objectives of the Atlanta Gay Men’s Chorus. Through this artistic vision, the chorus strives not only to change the way people think about gay men, but how they may think of diverse people in all parts of the world.
