The Note Ables

The Note Ables is a mixed-voice community of singers in its formative stages that perform both acapella and accompanied repertoire. Our mission is to provide musical excellence to educate, entertain, inspire and unite our communities.  We serve to broaden the scope of MCM performance opportunities to deliver a clear message of its support for the LGBTQ community. We are a diverse ensemble that welcomes all singers, regardless of sexual orientation. We are a member of GALA, the Gay and Lesbian Association of Choruses. We also afford the LGBTQ singers a sense of community within the ensemble to promote fellowship among our members. Members of the Note-Ables also participate in the larger ensemble. 

Our season runs from early September to early June, and includes major public performances with the larger ensembles/ appearances and approximately 10 other performances for public and private organizations.
