Artistic Director Search
Una Voce: The Gay Men’s Chorus of Tampa Bay (GMCTB) announces a search for its part-time position of Artistic Director. GMCTB has recently updated its mission statement to proudly declare: We Celebrate the Inherent Dignity of All People Through Excellence in Men’s Choral Music. To continue its goals, the chorus welcomes talented, passionate individuals with creative vision and leadership skills to apply for this position.
We’ve changed our name
Hopefully, by now, you have noticed that we have changed our name from Una Voce: The Florida Men’s Chorale to Una Voce: The Gay Men’s Chorus of Tampa Bay (GMCTB). We put this prospective change out to our singing members, to donors, to various vendors, and to audience members about a year ago to get comments and suggestions which were largely positive. The reason for the change is that the old tag line was geographically and musically incorrect. As you know, we do not pull our members from the entire state of Florida nor do we perform statewide, but rather from and in the Tampa Bay Area. And we are clearly not a chorale which is, by definition, a group of singers specializing in singing church music. So we’ve changed chorale to chorus, Florida to Tampa Bay, and we’ve added Gay because, well, we are, Blanche, we are! That being said, you don’t have to be gay, or even male, to sing with us. We only require our singing members to be able and willing to sing a male vocal part: tenor, baritone or bass.
