Spectrum Arts Society, Formally known as the Lynchburg Alliance Community Choir was founded in 2016 with the purpose of extending the reach of education programs of LGBTQ+ issues through artistic achievement. Our first rehearsal was held on August 4, 2016, and by the end of 2016, we had performed at Get Downtown!, The Transgender Day of Remembrance and as guest performers with Monument City Music in Richmond, VA.
After our inaugural performance on April 1, 2017, LACC began its transition to its new name and home. Spectrum Arts Society is now home to both Inspirare, our community choir and Hill City Pride, Lynchburg, Virginia's Pride Festival. We hope to inspire others to ignite change in their communities and to promote love for music and each other.
We believe all can embrace who they are,
can define their future, and can change the world.
We will create a musical dialogue so that LGBT+ people and their allies have a voice of distinction and are recognized for their integrity, resilience, and achievement.
"Believing that arts speak where words fail, we envision a movement that will bring people of distinction together to celebrate the wonder of the healing power of the arts. We strive to be known as peacemakers, defenders of the forgotten, and uplifters of the weak."
