The GALA Fund

About the Festival

GALA Choruses (pronounced GAY-la) is the Gay and Lesbian Association of Choruses, an international organization of LGBT choruses founded in 1982. GALA strives to empower its member choruses to change the world through song.

GALA Choruses’ signature event is its Festival, which is held every four years in a different host city. The Festival brings together over 130 choruses and 6000 singers for the world’s largest lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and ally (LGBTA) performing arts event. For those choristers, volunteers, and fans who are able to attend, it’s a transformative and joyous experience – never to be forgotten!

The Rainbow Chorale of Delaware has been a member of GALA Choruses since 1999 and has attended six official GALA-sponsored events:

  1. Regional Festival 2002 Cincinnati
  2. Festival VIIe 2004 Montreal
  3. Carnegie Hall 2006 New York City
  4. Festival 2008 Miami
  5. Festival 2012 Denver
  6. Festival 2016 Denver
  7. Festival 2020 Minneapolis (planning stages)

Festival 2020 Minneapolis will be held on July 4-8, 2020. The primary performance spaces will be Orchestra Hall, the auditorium in the Convention Center and Central Lutheran Church.

Attending these festivals can be costly for our members. To help offset theses expenses, the Chorale maintains a GALA Fund. To donate to the fund, visit our donate page.
