MenAlive - The Orange County Gay Men's Chorus was founded in 2001 by Artistic Director Rich Cook. In the short time since, MenAlive has quickly grown into one of Orange County's largest choruses and an active & respected partner in Southern California's arts scene.
Since its first rehearsal in September 2001, MenAlive has grown from 13 singers to more than 130 singers today, with a support team of more than 50 volunteers. The Chorus is run by a Board of Directors composed of both singing and non-singing members. It is a 501(c)3 non-profit arts organization.
MenAlive is more than simply a local arts organization. It is also, as part of its Mission Statement, a "bridge to the public at large." Through entertainment and musical excellence, the Chorus serves as an ambassador of the gay community to the general public, spreading harmony and goodwill and a message of acceptance.
The Chorus presents a three-concert series each season using mostly our home theatre, the Irvine Barclay Theatre in Irvine, California. At times, for very special shows, we have also used both the main Segerstrom Theater and the Segerstrom Concert Hall at the Orange County Performing Arts Center.
Several major and noted guest stars have joined MenAlive in performance over the years, including Michael Feinstein, Debbie Reynolds, Sam Harris and Broadway legend Bernadette Peters.
