BECOME A FRIEND OF THE SUNDAY BOYS
Become a friend of the sunday boys & Help us create the future of LGBTQ+ choral music
Do you love music?
Especially choral music?
Do you share our vision for more LGBTQ+ led music in the world?
Then join our growing family of Friends and support our ongoing mission to champion choral excellence and commission new and exciting LGBTQ+ music.
Our vision is a space where any LGBTQ+ person or ally can celebrate and create music with meaning - as a member, artist or supporter. Together we'll create a bold new canon of queer choral work, putting queer stories front and centre - challenging perceptions, raising questions and celebrating the lived LGBTQ+ experience in the 21st century. A repertoire forged in Greater Manchester, yet with international reach.
"Choir has had a very positive impact on my life. I have met loads of new lovely people and feel more confident in my singing. I feel part of a community which I didn't really have before." - A Sunday Boys member
