We were Out & extremely Loud!

In February 2016 GALS (Gay and Lesbian Singers Auckland) hosted the Out & Loud choral festival once more. It was an opportunity for LGBTIQ singing groups and individual singers from Australia and New Zealand to get together, sing, participate in workshops and generally have fun.

Eighteen singing members, plus our MD Drew Downing and accompanist Marc Alexander travelled across the ditch for a fabulous long weekend of singing. Apart from the Grand Matinee Concert which featured all the choirs and a couple of roof-raising combined choir pieces, all the attendees joined together to make up the largest float in the Auckland Pride March!
