The Beijing Shining Jazzy Chorus

Founded in 2008 at Beijing, the Shining Jazzy Chorus is now, with around 30 voices, the only public performing LGBT chorus in Beijing, the first GALA* member in Asia, and one of the cofounders of Proud Voices Asia**

With a wide ranging repertoire from classical music to folk, jazz and pop, the chorus’s aim is to challenge society’s preconceptions of the stereotypical image of a gay person, while providing a social network for its members and audience.

The Shining Jazzy Chorus will be accepting donations on the concert, for its 2014 development projects, like helping another Chinese city to found LGBT chorus, attending the 4 yearly European LGBT chorus festival, etc.
