Celebrating 40 years of musical excellence and forging a path for the future

At this year's Big Apple Performing Arts gala fundraiser, benefiting New York City Gay Men's Chorus and Youth Pride Chorus, join us to celebrate NYCGMC's 40th anniversary in grand style. Harmony is a celebration of the power music has to bring people together, pitch perfect for Valentine's Day and our ruby anniversary. Glamour, gemstones, and romantic ballads are combined with a scrumptious dinner, divine cocktails, inspiring fundraising, and superb entertainment. Mix in live and silent auctions full of unforgettable prizes to woo your special someone, and it's a Valentine's Day to remember.
