The award-winning Capital City Men’s Chorus, under the direction of Dr. Jeffrey Jones-Ragona, is an all-male chorus, based in Austin, TX and is the longest, continually running men’s chorus in Austin. From local churches and theaters in the Austin area, to Carnegie Hall in New York City, to the concert halls of international locales, the Capital City Men’s Chorus has a rich performance history that spans 25 years!
The chorus also believes in giving back to the community in which they live, through partnership with local charitable and humanitarian organizations, by performing for local fundraisers, organizing toy drives, and partnering with organizations that serve those in need in the greater Austin area.
The chorus currently has three CD’s: Silent Noon, Northern Lights, and Return to Standard Time. Membership in the CCMC is open to all persons who support CCMC’s Mission and Vision Statement. Participation by singing as well as non-singing membership is encouraged!
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.
Over the years, the Austin community has been extremely generous and supportive, thus allowing the CCMC to remain as one of only three, gay men’s choruses in Texas. After a successful 25th Anniversary Season, where the chorus performed it's largest concerts to date, the CCMC is looking foward to making it's next 25 years even bigger and better.
To that end, The CCMC is seeking additional funding, through our fans and those who support our goals of providing a safe place where men can gather and express themselves through musical expression and fellowship.
The additional funding that we are seeking will help us to attain the following goals:
