About Us

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.)

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.

We’re thrilled to hear you’re interested in learning more about joining Windy City Gay Chorus (our TTBB chorus) or Windy City Treble Quire (our SSAA chorus). Both choruses are filled with people with a passion for choral music that celebrates diversity, honor creativity, and cultivate pride through musical performance. We welcome anyone who is interested and has a commitment to our mission to audition!
