Caballeros The Gay Men’s Chorus of Palm Springs was founded as a 501 (c)(3) not-for-profit organization in 1999. They were first presented to the public as guest artists in the last annual Holiday concert GMCLA presented in Palm Springs. The new chorus sang four songs and received a rousing approval from the community. Beginning with only 24 singers, the chorus had grown to over 70 members by April, 2002, when they presented Robert Seeley’s “Naked Man” under the guest baton of noted conductor, Jon Bailey. Performing in glittering events such as The Steven Chase Awards Banquet, “Evening Under the Stars”, and “One Night Only”, Caballeros has become a major participant in their desert community. Guests in the chorus’s own concerts have included opera singer, Janet Hopkins, renowned dance company, Tango Nacional Argentina, and the multi-talented Florence Henderson. Notable local performers Dana Atkins, Mona Caywood, Lori Donato, Derrick Lewis, and Tommi Rose, among others, have also graced their stage. There have also been memorable joint concerts with other GALA choruses such as the Gay Men’s Chorus of Los Angeles, the Gay Men’s Chorus of San Francisco, and Vox Femina.
Caballeros is a performance group of gay men which welcomes all GLBT and GLBT-supportive people as members of their Board and Support team. The chorus is a proud member of their community and they love to perform to all regardless of any human difference.
