In November 2021, Modern Men returned to the stage and premiered Momentum, a commissioned piece by Robert Seeley based upon the writings of Robert Espindola. The work delivers a passionate perspective of the achievements of the LGBTQ movement and projects the dreams and aspirations of the future. A CD of Momentum is available. Visit modernmen.org. Streaming on all platforms where you get your digital music.
Modern Men: Coachella Valley Men’s Chorus is under the direction of Artistic Director Stan Hill who brings the chorus over 50 years of choral conducting experience. He has directed the San Francisco Gay Men’s Chorus for 11 years and the Twin Cities Gay Men’s Chorus for 12 years. The chorus promotes harmony through outstanding performances as we entertain and empower our audiences and embrace diversity through community outreach. We believe in joining together socially to make a positive contribution to the Coachella Valley communities in which we live. We are dedicated to educating the community through musical expression.
Modern Men organized in the summer of 2013 and performed live with 45 singers. The chorus continues to grow and thrive and is now entering our seventh performance season with more than 70 all-volunteer singers. We are delighted to perform concerts at the Palm Springs Cultural Center (formerly The Camelot Theatre) and Temple Isaiah in Palm Springs.
