Voices of Pride

Voices of Pride (VOP) was established in 2003 as the dream of a few men who were singing in choruses quite a distance from the Palm Beaches. Inspired by the numerous gay and lesbian choruses across the country, and bolstered by the support and encouragement of Compass Community Center and MCC of the Palm Beaches, they founded the first local gay chorus of Palm Beach County.

Their dream was to craft a musical organization with the highest musical and performance standards, encouraging diversity and respect for all people through music. VOP is a strong member of the thriving local arts community and St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church is proud to be aligned with this fine organization’s mission, which is

  • To encourage acceptance of diversity and respect for all people through music, and
  • To entertain the Palm Beach County community with quality music from a gay men’s chorus.

Zimmermann’s Café Chamber Music

Founded in 2016 by composers Clare Shore and Gregory Stepanich, Zimmermann’s Café Chamber Music is devoted to presenting “classical” music–or art music–written by living South Florida composers.

Zimmermann’s Café Chamber Music events take place in venues throughout South Florida, in the manner of J. S. Bach and his friends at the original Zimmermann’s Café in Leipzig—musical works are performed in an informal atmosphere that encourages interaction between composers, performers, and audience, all while enjoying light refreshments. At St. Andrew’s Church, the action takes place in the Parish Hall.
