Lynchburg singers form city's first LGBTQ chorus

By  | 

LYNCHBURG, Va. (WDBJ7) Members of a new performing arts group say they hope to add a little diversity to the entertainment scene in Lynchburg.

The Lynchburg Alliance Community Choir is a group of singers that formed late last year. It's the first choir in the Lynchburg area made up of singers who are gay or allies of the gay community.

The group says they want to share a message of love and unity with their neighbors.

"My vision for this performance is just to show the community at large that we can all come together, set our differences aside and celebrate the performing arts," said Josh Cline, executive director of the Lynchburg Alliance Community Choir.

The choir's first performance "And Still, We Sing" will be held April 1 at 7 PM in the Snidow Chapel at Lynchburg College. The event will feature Monument City Music and the Gay Men's Chorus of Charlotte. Tickets are $20.
