Description

A program for the Orlando Gay Chorus' concert, "Premier Concerts", on June 23 and 24, 1990, at the Orlando Museum of Art. The program includes brief biographies of Music Director Dr. Charles Callahan, and Accompanist Terry E. Thomas, program notes, an outline of the show's itinerary, how to join the chorus, a list of the chorus members, and how to become a contributor. A ticket from the show is included. $2 of the suggested $10 donation went to the Chorus AIDS Outreach Fund.

The Orlando Gay Chorus (OGC) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit arts and humanitarian organization, and part of the Gay and Lesbian Association (GALA) of Choruses. Founded on Valentines Day 1990, OGC is not only one of the largest mixed gay choirs in the United States at over 100 members, but they also boast four smaller ensembles that perform annual concerts, cabarets, and a host of community events, such as Come Out With Pride, Orlando Museum of Art’s Festival of Trees, and World AIDS Day memorial services. In 2017, the group performed at over 105 events, including 15 performances for the first anniversary of the Pulse Nightclub tragedy. Members come from all walks of life and all sexual and gender orientations, including straight allies. OGC lives by the motto “Singing the World to a Better Place” and strives to use music to change attitudes and build a stronger community.
