What we're about
Join us for friendships and fellowship through song! We are the Gay Asian Pacific Alliance (GAPA) Men's chorus who meet up every week to make friends and to share songs, both in English and in Asian languages. Our rehearsals alternate between San Francisco and Oakland. Aside from friendship, our purpose is to develop and perform choral programs that reflect the cultural diversity of our Asian-American heritage. We put on our own concerts, participate in national and international choral festivals and perform at community events. We are a part of the Gay Asian Pacific Alliance (GAPA), which has the mission of increasing the API LGBT visibility and advocating for API and LGBT rights.
2018 is a great year to join us as we will take the year to develop new song program for 2019 when we will participate in the Hand-in-Hand Asia in Tokyo. Hand in Hand is a gathering every two years of LGBT chorus from around the Asia-Pacific. In 2020, we will make our second appearance at the Gay and Lesbian Association of Choruses (GALA) festival in Minneapolis with over 6,500 singers and participants from all across North American.
So, if you have been wanting to come to the chorus but did not want to do it in the middle of a rehearsal cycle, 2018 is the year to do it! If you decide to join us at a rehearsal, let us know with a message here or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
No auditions necessary and no previous choral experience required. We ask that you bring your natural aesthetic value, your ability to sing on pitch and willingness to learn the music and songs.
