The Rainbow Chorale of Delaware is an inclusive, non-profit community chorus that provides LGBTQ+ individuals, with their friends and allies, the opportunity to perform high-quality choral music in an affirming environment that serves as a positive force for change. In addition, the Rainbow Chorale supports other institutions and individuals who serve that community.
Love of music is common to everyone. When we sing, we hope to impart the ideals, hopes, dreams, and aspirations of our community. Our goal is that with our listening audience we will strike a chord of commonality, and bridge the differences of our life experiences.
See the RCD and other GALA Choruses perform in an online event this June and July. The concert (in 2 parts!) will stream at 8pm (Eastern) on June 30 and July 8 and will be available after that date. The concert features songs from 27 LGBTQ+ choruses across North America connected by interviews with conductors and composers. The concerts celebrate LGBTQ Pride along with themed sets exploring GALA choruses as a place of belonging, standing together in times of crisis, and addressing social justice as a singing community.
Though we cannot sing together in person during the COVID-19 pandemic, GALA Choruses stands in solidarity as we change the world through song. The July 8 concert marks what would have been the closing ceremonies for GALA Festival 2020 in Minneapolis. We look forward to the day, when we will sing together again!.
