The GALA Fund

About the Festival

GALA Choruses (pronounced GAY-la)  is the Gay and Lesbian Association of Choruses. Founded in 1982, GALA leads the LGBTQ+ choral movement. It strives to empower its member choruses to change the world through song.

The GALA Festival is an international choral celebration held every four years in a different host city. For those choristers, volunteers, and supporters who are able to attend, it is a transformative and joyous experience – never to be forgotten!

Festival 2020 Minneapolis — held on July 4-8, 2020, with more than 6000 diverse singers representing over 100 choruses and ensembles from North America and around the world — will take over downtown Minneapolis for five powerful days of concerts, festivities, and community-building. The primary performance spaces will be Orchestra Hall, the Convention Center, and Central Lutheran Church.

Attending GALA can be costly for our members. To help offset these expenses, the Chorale maintains a special GALA Fund. To make a contribution, select “GALA Fund” under the “Choose Which Fund” field when completing the donation form.
