There is nothing like the power of human voices raised in song to touch our souls and open our minds to new experiences. GMCSF audiences experience messages of love, inclusion, and celebration through the powerful voices of the largest men’s chorus in the southeastern United States. Your financial support is a vital tool in helping us reach more people, open more minds, and change more hearts than ever before. We are pleased to offer a range of ways that you can help us continue our mission at a time when our voices are needed more than ever before.

The Conductor’s Circle is a passionate community of supporters who generously invest in our season, enabling us to spread our messages of love and inclusion through song.
