Gaywill Ambassadors Program

Please consider becoming a Gaywill Ambassador for the chorus. Through your sponsorship we are able to continue offering quality performances to you and to the wider community. The Ottawa Gay Men’s Chorus was established in 1986, making the second gay choir to be formed in Canada and the oldest such choir in Ontario. Please help us to stay strong and to grow.
