Sing Out Anchorage
Become a member of Sing Out Anchorage, Anchorage’s first LGBTQ+ choir!
Sing Out is an inclusive ensemble that seeks to elevate, inspire, and educate the Anchorage community through song. Sing Out provides a creative platform for adult members and friends of the LGBTQ+ community to share their collective voice through the art of choral music.
You don’t need musical experience and a formal audition is not required to join the choir. Join us at one of our open house events or just show up at rehearsal to learn more about the ensemble, meet the artistic director, and find out how you can become a member.
Sing Out rehearsals will begin in the fall of 2019. Stay tuned for the rehearsal schedule and location.
