ABOUT US - MGLC

Celebrating over three and a half decades of raising our voices for equality, the Melbourne Gay & Lesbian Chorus (MGLC) proudly stands as the southern hemisphere's pioneering LGBTQIA+ choir.

 

United by our shared hopes for the future and strengthened by our collective experiences, MGLC uses the power of music to celebrate diversity and promote acceptance for LGBTQIA+ individuals.

We foster a supportive and inclusive community for all our members.

 

From our humble beginnings as a small group of singers in 1990, we have flourished, growing in both numbers and momentum.

Our repertoire is as adventurous as our community - we harness the boundless creative energy of our members to create musical experiences that are bold, imaginative and original.

Whether you join us for rehearsal or performance we welcome you: come share our song.

MGLC is an Affiliate Member of GALA Choruses, the international association of the lesbian and gay choral movement. GALA represents more than 190 choruses, their 10,000 singers and 750,000 patrons in Australia, Europe, South America, and North America.

Musical Director Stephanie Teh

 

Stephanie Teh serves as the esteemed Musical Director of MGLC, a role she undertook in 2021.

 

With a dynamic leadership style, Steph has guided the choir through an exploration of diverse musical genres, ranging from high-energy pop to emotionally resonant pieces. Her talent as an arranger shines through in many of MGLC’s performances, where she crafts captivating renditions that captivate audiences.
