Newport's first queer chorus!

Quorus (queer chorus; pronounced "KWOH-ruhs") is a teen and adult chorus founded by Elizabeth Woodhouse in February 2023. It is the first and only LGBTQIA+ chorus in Newport created to offer a safe and joyful space for members of the queer community to connect and sing together.

Are you a part of the LGBTQIA+ Community? Do you love to sing?

QUORUS, an LGBTQIA+ chorus

QUORUS, led by Elizabeth Woodhouse and pianist Jan Navarro, learns and performs a variety of music including pop, jazz, and music from all over the world. Singers have the opportunity to explore and develop their unique voice as well as learn skills to become more confident musicians no matter what your previous musical experience. QUORUS prepares for two concerts per year (December and May) plus additional community performances.


QUORUS meets on Mondays from 6:15 - 7:45 pm at the Martin Luther King Community Center (Newport). There is no audition or cost to participate. Weekly commitment is expected.



Anyone who wants to perform with us at PRIDE events in June 2024 has the opportunity to join us for a special "Pride Quorus!" We will meet every Monday in May 2024 (starting May 6) to learn music to perform at Pride events in June 2024.



The LGBTQIA+ singalong in December 2022 was such a hit that we're bringing it back this year -- and more! Stay tuned for dates, locations and themes!
