GALA Festival 2016
Meet Steel City Men’s Chorus
Steel City Men’s Chorus traveled to Denver for the 2016 GALA Festival, a gathering of over 6,000 singers and 200 gay and lesbian choruses from as far away as Hamburg, Germany, and Beijing, China. We were honored to share the stage with choruses large and small, traditional and unique, all sharing our stories and experiences and striving to make the world a better place. This is our video introduction telling our GALA brothers and sisters a bit about us and where we are from.

We have a new Artistic Director! Please welcome Michael Weinberg to the Steel City Men’s Chorus fold!
Michael is completing his doctorate in choral conducting from Yale University, having previously completed his master’s at Temple University. He is as talented a performer as he is a conductor and teacher, and we are thrilled to have him join us.
Come check him out (and us, too!) when we begin open rehearsals next Sunday, August 20 and again on August 27 at 5:30 at Pilgrim Church, UCC (2817 6th Avenue South in the Lakeview District). We’d love to see you!
Thank You, Pilgrim Church!
A big thanks to Pilgrim Church for their support of Birmingham’s gay men’s chorus. Their donation of space is tangible evidence of their commitment to equality for all. We are excited to partner with them!
