San Diego Gay Men's Chorus looking for singers and volunteers, launches alumni group

SAN DIEGO -- Fresh off its record-setting holiday show at the Balboa Theatre, the San Diego Gay Men’s Chorus (SDGMC) is holding open auditions for its 2014 season.

“I’ve been singing with the chorus for over 15 years and absolutely love it,” said Joe Gregore, SDGMC membership director. “We have so much fun. The guys are amazing and each rehearsal and performance is uplifting and puts a smile on your face.”

The chorus also needs volunteers for its Operations team to help with the “behind-the-scenes” activities at each show and during special projects and events.

Anyone interested in auditioning should pre-register at sdgmc.org and click the “Join Us” link or call 877-296-7664. Auditions will be held on Saturday, Jan. 4 from 1-5 pm and Sunday, Jan. 5 from 1:30-5 pm at the University Christian Church at 3900 Cleveland Ave. in Hillcrest.

All prospective singers and volunteers are invited to “Info Night” on Monday, Jan. 6 from 7-9 pm at the church.

SDGMC is also kicking off its new Alumni Association to help keep former singers as part of the family. As a special, one-time opportunity, any singer who joined the chorus since 2010 and left in good standing may rejoin without re-auditioning.

All singers joining will begin rehearsing for "Wow! The Chorus Sings the ‘90s" including the hits of Whitney Houston, Mariah Carey, Madonna and more. The show will take place on Saturday, April 5 at 8 pm and Sunday, April 6 at 3 pm at the Lawrence Family Jewish Community Center Theatre in La Jolla and directed by Joey Landwehr.

For more information or show tickets, call 877-296-7664.
