Join the Windy City Gay Chorus and Windy City Treble Quire for our annual Pride concert, Together We Rise. Now more than ever, living authentically and sharing the love in our hearts remains the lifeblood that binds our community, gives us strength, empowers us and affirms our bravery. During a time where hate is on the upswing and legislatures are trying to tear our community down, it is up to all of us to lift up one another through song in support and celebration of LGBTQ+ Pride. Join us as we perform an evening of music that promotes joy, positivity, and togetherness all while reassuring you of your beloved place in our community.Buy Tickets
Windy City Performing Arts sings to inspire change, celebrate diversity, and honor the dignity of the LGBTQ+ community.
Windy City Performing Arts (WCPA) was incorporated in 1983 as an independent not-for-profit umbrella organization for Windy City Gay Chorus, Aria: Windy City Women’s Ensemble (later renamed to Windy City Treble Quire), Unison: Windy City Lesbian and Gay Singers, and Windy City Slickers. (Unison and Windy City Slickers are currently on hiatus.)Read More
Our choruses create moments that inspire people to change the world. But, as is the case with every not-for-profit (501c3) arts organization, ticket sales, dues, and grants only cover 60% of our operating costs. Our friends help us fill the gap. And your donation is fully tax deductible to the extent allowable by IRS code.Read More
