Modern Men: Coachella Valley Men’s Chorus promotes harmony through outstanding performances as we entertain and empower our audiences and embrace diversity through community outreach.
Modern Men is a proud member of the Gay and Lesbian Association of Choruses (GALA), which leads the North American GLBT choral movement, cultivating the artistic development of 10,000 singers from more than 190 choruses in the US, Canada, and Mexico. The quadrennial GALA Festival 2020 will be held in Minneapolis in July 2020.
In July 2020, Modern Men under Artistic Director Dr. Stan Hill, will present a new composition specifically commissioned for their performance in Minneapolis at GALA Festival 2020. Composed by Robert Seeley, with lyrics from the writings of Robert Espindola (1952-2016) and scored for men’s chorus, string quartet, piano and oboe, the work delivers a passionate perspective of the achievements of the LGBT movement and projects the MOMENTum of the dreams and aspirations of the future, inspired by the movement’s history.
