CoFMC Values Statement:
We value creating a safe atmosphere of compassion and respect, where we nurture each other’s development both personally and musically. We encourage our members to express their individuality, and value their contributions, allowing for growth, creativity and development, both collectively and individually.
We value the important contributions of each member and the time we spend together as a group. We realize that what we are attempting to do cannot be done alone. We are dependent on each other to create the harmony in our music and in our community that we strive to achieve.
We value the joy of singing and making beautiful music together. We accept the challenge of working to improve our musical skills in order to provide high quality male choral performance that is entertaining, and honors the traditions of male choral music, and LGBT male chorus music.
We value the important opportunity we can provide to members and friends of the LGBT community and the community at-large; to join us in song, to hear the harmony we create in our music, and to form working partnerships. We make these efforts in hope to build bridges of compassion, break down barriers of prejudice and ignorance, and build a foundation of equality and respect for future generations. We also live in a community that is beyond that of the LGBT community. As such it is the belief of the board that our chorus and its membership be available to participate in community service efforts. We do so to be a part of the larger community.
CoFMC Diversity Statement:
To support our commitment to diversity, CoFMC welcomes all singers regardless of sexual orientation, gender identity, or gender presentation as long as they are able to sing within the TTBB vocal range.
