    Anyone with a passion to sing in a chorus/choir is welcome to join The LOFT's Pride Chorus. No chorus experience necessary.


    There is no required fee to participate in The LOFT's Pride Chorus but donations are welcome.  The chorus has two seasons each year with a Summer break in-between.  The suggested donation per season is $50.00, more if you can, less if you can't.  If you joined a season mid-way, a $5.00 donation per rehearsal is suggested. The donations are used to give music director Zack Wright a stipend for volunteering his professional expertise to the chorus' development, the purchase of sheet music, rehearsals fees when the chorus practices in MUMC rooms, and any performance related expenses.

    Donations are not limited to members of the chorus....family, friends and fans of the chorus are welcome and encouraged to give. Thank you for helping keep songs in our hearts.

    SPECIAL NOVEMBER OUTING!

    For November 15th, Film Friday will be going on an outing to the Irvington Theater for a viewing of The Lavender Scare. The screening starts at 7:30pm, we will be meeting in the lobby at 7:15pm. 

    Tickets are available for purchase here

     

    Irvington Mayor Brian Smith will introduce this exclusive screening of The Lavender Scare, one of the most talked about films of the decade—which won 18 awards for best documentary. The film will be preceded by the short Hiding in Daylight, written by Irvington Theater manager Greg Allen, and followed by a Q/A with the Lavender Scare's director Josh Howard.
    Film Synopsis: The Lavender Scare is the untold story of an unrelenting campaign by the federal government under Eisenhower to identify and fire all employees suspected of being homosexual. It's a chilling reminder of how easy it is to trample the rights of an entire class of people in the name of patriotism and national security. The New York Times called it: "Fascinating and horrifying ... and timely."

    Donations are welcome. Suggested donation is $5; more if you can, less if you can't. Fees related to activities are the responsibility of participants.
