The Lehigh Valley Gay Men’s Chorus has a mission to use its voice and presence in the Lehigh Valley and beyond to promote understanding of who we are and of the diverse communities we represent. We seek to fulfill our vision for the future by providing enrichment through musical excellence, education and fun for its audience and members.
Originally founded on August 9, 1994, ten men gathered to form the Lehigh Valley Gay Men’s Chorus. The LVGMC has since had many directors in those years including Robert Roush, Steven Olofson, Beverly Morgan, Jay Kawarsky, and J. Clinton Miller, James C. Sharp Jr, before being led currently by Don McCord. We have released two CDs “Alec Baldwin Doesn’t’ Love Me” in 2000 and “Slices” in 2004 as well as a number of performance DVDs.
Currently, the LVGMC consists of approximately 14 members ranging in ages from 11 months to too old to mention. Despite their name, the LVGMC has several female members! All who can sing tenor, baritone, or bass are welcome regardless of gender or sexual orientation.
