Golden Gate Men’s Chorus
The GGMC is committed to excellence and joyous music-making; providing a supportive and nurturing atmosphere for our members’ artistic and social self-expression; and sharing and expanding the rich tradition of male choral music.
The Golden Gate Men’s Chorus (GGMC) is a select group of men representing the ethnic and social diversity of San Francisco, who share a common appreciation of choral music. The GGMC presents spring, summer, and winter programs annually, in addition to guest and community benefit performances throughout the year. GGMC was formed by Dick Kramer in 1982 as the Dick Kramer Gay Men’s Chorale. Mr. Kramer, one of the founding fathers of the American gay choral movement, envisioned a small men’s ensemble reminiscent of university men’s choruses of 19th-century Europe. Reorganized as the Golden Gate Men’s Chorus in 1988, the GGMC continues to present high quality performances of men’s choral music.
There are many opportunities to share your time and talents, including being an usher at our performances as well as assisting with concert production.
