My name is Dr. Ryan Endris, and I am the newly appointed Music Director of the Albany Gay Men’s Chorus. As our mission, the Albany Gay Men’s Chorus seeks to entertain and enlighten by creating high quality vocal music in the rich and time-honored tradition of male choral singing. The Chorus strives to promote pride in and acceptance of the gay community and endeavors to build bridges by making positive contributions to the greater Capital Region.
The chorus, which rehearses weekly on Wednesdays from 6:45-8:45pm, is open to all gay, bisexual, transgender, and straight men. We are hoping that some of your members might be interested in joining this wonderful community of singers. Would you be willing to please share this email and attachment with your organization’s members?
Rehearsals begin Wednesday, August 26, and take place at First Lutheran Church (181 Western Ave.); however, we will accepting new members through the end of September. Prospective members simply should come to a rehearsal, where they will be greeted with open arms. Non-singing members (our “fifth section”) are also welcome as volunteers in a “behind-the-scenes” capacity. Anyone interested in joining is also welcome to contact me by email at email@example.com.
I hope you will be able to partner with us in fulfilling our mission of promoting pride and acceptance of the LGBT community through excellence in music.
