Love to sing? Pride chorus meets for rehearsals! Every Wednesday from 6:30pm-7:30pm.
The LOFT has formed an Pride Chorus. The chorus is co-ed, requires no audition process and is lead by professional music director Zack Wright. Read more about Zack below.
The LOFT's Pride Chorus strives to reflect the diversity within our communities. We are a blending of voices representing all different sexual orientations, gender identities, ages, races, abilities and music/choral histories.
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.
