Forte Awards | Columbus Gay Men’s Chorus

April 25 @ 6:00 pm 9:00 pm


This event is CGMC’s annual gala and features an array of hors d’ourves, spirits, and entertainment. The event began in 2009 as a way to raise critical funds to support the mission of CGMC.

This year’s Forte Awards will be hosted by Superstar Drag Queen Nina West and will feature a performance by CGMC’s own Vox ensemble. 

CGMC will recognize Misty Linn, Founder at Core Realty Collection and Owner of District West Bar, with the 2024 Forte Award.

We are so excited to be back celebrating the Forte Awards and we hope you are able to join us!
