After a successful 30-year trajectory, the Capital City Men’s Chorus announced it has changed its name to the Austin Gay Men’s Chorus, in celebration of the growing acceptance and pride in their identity.

“Claiming our name is the next chapter in the Capital City Men’s Chorus’ coming out story,” said Board Chair Paul Halstead. “From a position of ‘truth in labeling’ we can continue the conversation about being a completely inclusive community.”

As part of this new identity, the chorus revealed their new logo and website, www.austingaymenschorus.org. The new logo, which features the chorus acronym in a variety of fonts and colors, represents the diversity of the gay community. “Like the gay community, Austin Gay Men’s Chorus is made up of amazing individuals with unique backgrounds, experiences and is not a monolith,” Halstead said.

The cropped characters highlight the concept of the power of the collective and when a group of individuals come together they are greater than the sum of their parts. Intended to be disguised within the “G” is the well-known universal symbol for equal rights as well as a hint at the rainbow.

The chorus’s first season under its new moniker features a variety of performances at different venues. The season kicks off with Lip Syng: Out & Proud, an opportunity for the audience to join in with community favorites including YMCA and Dancing Queen, Sept. 27 & 28 at the Metropolitan Community Church in South Austin. Next up is the annual holiday concert, which this year is named Chrismahanakawanzaka, Dec. 6-8 at St. Martin’s Church. Always a sell-out performance, this year’s Dinner Cabaret will be held at the Central Public Library on Feb. 8. The season culminates with the annual spring show on June 13 and 14 at the RL David Auditorium at the Texas School for the Deaf. Our Favorite Things will debut in Austin before the chorus takes it on the road to the Gay and Lesbian Association of Chorus’ quadrennial festival in Minneapolis. Tickets will be on sale six weeks prior to each respective season show at www.austingaymenschorus.org.
