About the RCC

Our Mission:

The Renaissance City Choir affirms and celebrates LGBTQ identity through the unifying power of music.

RCC is western Pennsylvania’s only LGBTQA (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, and Allies) choral group. We strive to promote a positive image of the LGBTQ community and to be a leading contributor to the cultural life of the tri-state area. We seek to build bridges both within the LGBTQ community and with the community at large. Our programming blends challenging contemporary music, commissions of new works, an ambitious traditional repertoire, and music from various world cultures.

We seek to educate, challenge and enlighten both our audiences and our singing membership. We continue to affirm, by example and through song, the worth and dignity of sexual minorities. Music that is gay-positive and openly supports issues related to human equality and justice is represented at all concerts.

The Renaissance City Choir is a proud member of GALA Choruses.
