Whether you're a seasoned vocalist or someone with a passion for singing, there's a place for you in the
Phoenix Gay Men's Chorus!
Auditions for the fall 2023 semester have now concluded. Please check back soon for available spring 2024 audition opportunities!
Our chorus is a vibrant community filled with members who share a passion for choral music, celebrate diversity, honor creativity, and cultivate pride through musical performance. We welcome anyone interested and committed to our mission to audition and be a part of our harmonious family!
Auditions are typically held July - September for the Fall season and in January-February for the Spring/Summer season.
Whether you're an experienced singer or just starting your musical journey, our chorus is open to individuals from a wide range of musical backgrounds and skill levels. Auditions are used to determine your vocal section and assess your musical abilities. While some basic musical skills are required for singing members, music sight-reading is helpful but not mandatory.
Attending an open rehearsal before auditioning is encouraged. These are actual rehearsals where you can experience the joyful atmosphere and see what to expect on a weekly basis as a member. You can sit and observe or join in and sing along with a buddy. If you'd like to attend a rehearsal, reach out to us, and we'll be happy to welcome you!
If you'd like to sit in on a rehearsal before joining, please contact us.
We know that an audition can be nerve-wracking. Relax! We’ll do our best to make the process as friendly and informal as possible! Auditions are held in person with our artistic staff. At your audition, your range and basic sight-reading skills will be assessed with vocal warm-ups and pitch-matching exercises.
You will be contacted within a week of the audition, if not immediately following, depending on the audition schedule and number of auditions. We won’t keep you waiting!
New members will be introduced to the organization and current membership at our welcome back rehearsal. If you join at other times during the year, we’ll make sure you receive all needed materials and introduce you accordingly. Whenever you join, Section Leaders and Mentors in the chorus will help answer questions and help familiarize you with PHXGMC. You’ll also receive a Member Handbook containing detailed information about the chorus and its policies.
Our chorus rehearses on Tuesday nights from 7:00 pm – 9:30 pm at the Parsons Center for Health & Wellness, 1101 N Central Ave, Phoenix, AZ 85004.
We perform two major concerts per year: Holiday and our Season Finale. Each concert is performed two or three times over a weekend. The week preceding regular concerts is “Tech Week” when dress rehearsals and run-throughs of the concert program are held. You will be notified of any special rehearsal locations, times, and updates through announcements at rehearsals, chorus newsletters, and our members-only website.
In addition to our regular concert season, each member may participate in outreach performances in the Phoenix area throughout the year.
