The Boise Men’s and Women’s Choruses are a community organization, 501c3 entity. We meet weekly to combine our voices in song for the greater understanding and education of diversity and women’s issues in Idaho. Help us by signing up for our email distribution list, attending events and performances, or join!  We have both singing and non-singing members.  We are welcoming and affirming of all people!
