Welcome to the first Festival Of Voices. It is our goal to make the Festival Of Voices an annual showcase concert to feature the wonderful GALA choruses from the Northeast USA and Canada, and to build community between GALA choruses and other local musical performance ensembles. To this end we are pleased to welcome the Cayuga Chimes Women's Barbershop Chorus as our local guest chorus. Out Loud Chorus is a member chorus in the Gay and Lesbian Association Of Choruses, Inc. (GALA) which has over 200 member choruses with over 10,000 active musicians world-wide. The motto of GALA is Our Voices Win Freedom. Festival Of Voices is a perfect expression of the GALA motto and the Out Loud Chorus Mission Statement, particularly where it reads Out Loud Chorus was "established for the education, enjoyment and cultural enrichment of its members and its audience." Out Loud seeks to foster a spirit of pride to present positive image to all.
