In celebration of the 25th anniversary of the Columbus Gay Men's Chorus (CGMC), this collection documents the programs and concerts of CGMC over the last three decades. When complete, the collection will include concert programs and photographs from 1990 to the present. CGMC was founded in 1990 in order to foster increased recognition, understanding & acceptance of gay men, lesbians, bisexuals and transgender persons After holding its rehearsals at the St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church, the CGMC's debut concert took place on December 9, 1990 at the Thurber Theater on the OSU Campus. Fifty-one men sang in that first concert. David Price served as Artistic Director from 1990 to 1997 and took the Chorus to its very first GALA Festival performance in Denver, Colorado. In addition, he helped found Vox Alterna in 1991. During this time, the Chorus released its first CD called, "Stepping Out." David Monseur served as Artistic Director from 1997 until 2010. Under his guidance, the Chorus held its first Joy! Concert at the King Avenue United Methodist Church. Dr. Timothy Sarsany now serves as the Artistic Director, continuing the road to success.
