The Des Moines Gay Men’s Chorus is dedicated to promoting harmony among all while advancing a positive image of gay people through outstanding musicianship, creative programming and community outreach.
Originally known as the “Des Moines Men’s Chorus” from 1985 to 1992, the Des Moines Gay Men’s Chorus (DMGMC) reorganized in 2001. It was guided by Dr. Randal A. Buikema who served as Artistic Director and Conductor until 2005. Not long after, the Chorus found new leadership when it hired Dr. Rebecca Gruber to serve as Artistic Director and Conductor.
The Chorus has an extensive history of performances and honors. The newly reformed Des Moines Gay Men’s Chorus gave its first performance in May of 2001, thanks to the dedication of supportive members of the community. Since then, the Chorus has given three concerts each year and performed at various events in the Des Moines and central Iowa area.
