Seattle Men's Chorus and Seattle Women's Chorus entertain, enlighten, unify, and heal our audience and members using the power of words and music to recognize the value of gay and straight people and their relationships.
Seattle Men’s Chorus was founded in 1979 and Seattle Women’s Chorus made its premiere on stage in 2002. Each Chorus currently has a small ensemble of 9 to 11 members each (Captain Smartypants and Sensible Shoes), which further the mission of the organization by performing throughout the Pacific Northwest.
In addition to the 650 singing members, the Choruses have a base of over 50 volunteers and associate members who support both Choruses. A leading voice for the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) community, the Choruses offer 30 outreach events and mainstage concert performances annually. Concerts, often including nationally-known guest artists along with our region’s professional talents, receive critical acclaim for their combination of high musical quality, wit, and celebration of people of all orientations and identities. Over 30,000 people attend our performances each year at Benaroya Hall, McCaw Hall, Cornish Playhouse at the Seattle Center, and Saint Mark’s Cathedral, with thousands more seeing each Chorus in other local performances throughout Washington every year.
We cannot be considered as simply a local arts organization. In addition to the high level of performances we produce, we are also a "voice for acceptance" in the community and across the nation.
