Founded in 1982 with 75 members, the Denver Gay Men's Chorus (DGMC) was the first openly gay arts organization in Denver and the first to use the word "gay" in its name. The Denver Gay Men's Chorus is a talented choral ensemble that is dedicated to musical excellence. The group speaks through song about issues meaningful to the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender experience. Touching ears and hearts alike, DGMC and its messages of acceptance and pride continue to be in demand with diverse audiences.


Want to join the Denver Gay Men's Chorus? DGMC is having on-going auditions for their spring concert in March - we'll be singing Beatles songs! Contact Michael Sattler at for more information about the time and money logistics as well as audition information. In addition, DGMC will be having set auditions on Thursday, January 8th from 6-8 p.m. We look forward to hearing from you!

The Denver Gay Men's Chorus rehearses most weeks on Sunday evening from 6:00 - 9:00 PM at Christ Church United Methodist (690 Colorado Boulevard, Denver, CO 80206).

"I sing in the Denver Gay Men's Chorus because of my love of vocal performance and to be part of a community of like-minded individuals."

- Chad Reischl
