About Us

Out Loud Chorus is a non-auditioned community chorus. Most of our members identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender, but there is no test and we are open to all who consider themselves allies of the LGBT community. Really it is all about having fun and working hard together to make good music and put on a great show. And our practice CD's and sectional rehearsals help with learning the notes for those who don't read music.
