Frequently Asked Questions


What is Flying House Productions?

Formed in 1979, our organization has grown to house two choruses, Seattle Men's Chorus and Seattle Women's Chorus. We are Washington State's largest and most influential choral organization. We are among the largest community choruses in North America.

What is the mission of the choruses?

Our voices transform society through innovative and entertaining programs that build community, illuminate the experiences of LGBTQ people and their allies, expand inclusion, and inspire justice.

Who are the members of the organization?

Members of the choruses are representative of the large community in which we live. Members range in age, race, gender-identity, sexuality, profession, background, and outside interests. Members share a common vision - a more harmonious world that celebrates the unique identities and talents of all people.

Are the choruses gay?

SMC and SWC are rooted in Seattle’s LGBTQ community and are proud members of GALA Choruses, the leading association committed to serving the LGBTQ choral movement. We welcome anyone who is a member or ally of the community.
