The Capital City Men’s Chorus (CCMC) was founded in 1989 by sixteen volunteer members. The CCMC has operated as a non-profit 501(c) (3) arts organization since 1990 and is the recipient of funding through a Cultural Contract from the City of Austin Cultural Arts Division. However, the majority of financial support for the group comes from the continuing generosity of individuals and businesses in the Austin area community.
The CCMC is an active member of the Gay and Lesbian Association of Choruses (GALA). GALA, the association of the international gay and lesbian choral movement, represents over 180 men’s, women’s, and mixed choruses and thousands of audience members in North America, Europe, South America, and Australia.
