About Stonewall Chorale

Based in New York City, the Stonewall Chorale is the nation's first gay and lesbian chorus. Our mission is to enrich people's lives through learning and performing beautiful choral music, and to nurture and celebrate the community we create together. 

The Chorale originated in December 1977 as the Gotham Male Chorus, and specialized in Gregorian Chant and Renaissance music. In 1979, women joined the chorus for the first time, and the name was changed to Stonewall Chorale, the nation’s first Lesbian and Gay chorus.

Today, Cynthia Powell leads us as our Artistic Director and we typically perform three concerts each year and make appearances at special events throughout the tri-state area.
