The Boston Gay Men’s Chorus is one of New England’s largest and most successful community-based choruses. Founded in 1982, the 175-voice ensemble is celebrated for its outstanding musicianship, creative programming, and groundbreaking community outreach. Under the dynamic leadership of Music Director Reuben M. Reynolds III, the BGMC sings a wide spectrum of classical and popular music and creates social change by providing a positive, affirming image of the gay and lesbian community. The Chorus is heard live by more than 10,000 people each season and thousands more through recording, television and internet broadcasts. In November 2013 CBS-WBZ named The Boston Gay Men’s Chorus one of the "top 5" choruses in the city of Boston. In June 2015 BGMC became the first LGBT chorus to tour the Middle East.
Born from the passionate minds of young Boston musicians, Phoenix was founded with the explicit mission of revitalizing the presentation of orchestral music for modern audiences. Beneath all of our efforts is an inherent belief that the modern audience can and will love events taking place in exciting and inviting atmospheres. Our goals are simple: take a critical look at every facet of a performance and make every effort to create a more engaging concert-going experience. These changes are meant not only to expand the reach of classical music to a broader audience, but to reinvigorate the orchestral concert scene as a whole.
Fresh Ink Theatre Company is committed to developing new work with theatre artists in the New England area. We seek to empower writers with the tools to craft plays that showcase their creative vision, and we challenge the Boston community to engage in the evolution of dynamic new work as it transforms from first draft to first production, and beyond.
