Columbus Gay Men's Chorus Responds to Orlando

The Columbus Gay Men's Chorus is an institution in Columbus. Their music has graced the city for 26 years, and they continue to spread the joy and healing of music in times of celebration as well as times of great loss.

The Columbus Gay Men's Chorus went to the Columbus State House lawn this past Sunday night, just hours after the horror in Orlando. Here they are at rehearsal a bit earlier, preparing to share music with a wounded public, in honor of those lost.


Many thanks to the Columbus Gay Men's Chorus and their music director, Tim Sarsany.
