The renowned Atlanta Gay Men’s Chorus and Atlanta Women’s Chorus comprise the largest community music organization in the Southeast. Each chorus presents three annual concert experiences defined by musical excellence and a commitment to promoting equality for all people. Voices of Note, the not-for-profit organization governing our choruses, is a catalyst for social change. It provides an opportunity to be inspired, a journey to places in hearts and minds that have yet to be explored, and a voyage into the perspective of our neighbors, teachers, siblings and friends. Above all, Voices of Note believes that the most effective way to deliver the message of equality for all people is with music. Through music, we are changing hearts and minds.
The Atlanta Gay Men’s Chorus, one of the world’s longest-running gay male choruses, is part of Voices of Note, Inc., a not-for-profit organization governing the AGMC and the Atlanta Women’s Chorus. Voices of Note is a catalyst for social change, providing an opportunity to be inspired, a journey to places in hearts and minds that have yet to be explored, and a voyage into the perspectives of our neighbors, teachers, siblings and friends. Both the AGMC and the AWC are members of GALA, the Gay and Lesbian Association of Choruses. Read more about the history of the AGMC at the Wikipedia page »
The 70-voice Atlanta Women’s Chorus is a talented, diverse group of all ages, backgrounds and beliefs. The AWC is led by Artistic Director Dr. Melissa Arasi, assistant professor of mMusic at Reinhardt University. The group began in 2013 as the Atlanta Women’s Project, a small ensemble sponsored by the Atlanta Gay Men’s Chorus (AGMC) which is now beginning its 37th season as one of the longest-running gay choruses. In early 2014, the newly formed AWC presented its first full-length concert and is now an independent choral ensemble under the Voices of Note organizational umbrella. The AWC presents three concerts with multiple performances each season.
