Joining the Chorus family

The Boston Gay Men’s Chorus wants you!

Whether you’re interested in singing with the chorus, or joining our devoted family of volunteers, we’d love to hear from you.

Twice each year, in September and January, we audition new prospective singing members. Come out of the shower! Step away from the karaoke mic! Sing with Boston Gay Men’s Chorus! If you’re interested in auditioning, please fill out our Audition Inquiry Form. Our Auditions Coordinator will get back to you with more information.

Non-singing volunteers are members of the 5th Section. Primarily responsible to set up and provide snacks during rehearsals and provide support during events and concerts for major events. Please email your interest to office@bgmc.org.
