The Philadelphia Gay Men’s Chorus traces its history to 1981, when founder Gerald Davis and three other brave souls toured Philly’s gay bars at Christmastime,
bearing a gift of song. From that modest start, PGMC has grown into the largest all-male choral group in the Greater Philadelphia region, spreading its musical
message of hope and inclusion to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgendered and straight audiences in a variety of settings.
Notable performance milestones in the Chorus’ history include its Academy of Music debut in 1990, when it performed with the national tour of “HeartStrings,”
a benefit for AIDS research featuring Sandy Duncan and Jason Bateman; singing at the dedication of the National Constitution Center in 2003, and its first
performance at the Kimmel Center for the Performing Arts in 2006, at which the Chorus premiered its first exclusive commission, “Open Road,” inspired by the
poetry of Walt Whitman. The Chorus returned to the Kimmel in 2007 for a concert to celebrate its 25th anniversary. In May 2009, the Chorus proudly participated in
“Voices of Equality,” a groundbreaking joint concert with the Anna Crusis Women’s Choir and the Mendelssohn Club of Philadelphia, featuring new works commissioned
by each participating chorus, and in November of 2009, it welcomed Broadway legend Andrea McArdle back home as the headline performer for its annual “Showstoppers!”
As an Open and Affirming church of the United
Church of Christ and a recently designated a Zone of Peace church, Ascension Unite Church of Chist
is open and welcoming to people from all walks of life, and want to spread this message to
the greater Norristown community.
