For Heartland Men’s Chorus, singing is what we do, so it is with profound sadness that we let you know that we must cancel our June performances. In light of the extension of Kansas City’s shelter-in-place order, it is impossible for the Chorus to gather to rehearse to prepare a program. We’re so sorry that we won’t be able to gather together with you in June.

We are grateful to all who have donated back their tickets to HMC at this incredibly challenging time. Your support at this time when our revenue from concerts and fundraising events has been eliminated means so much to us.

If, however, you need assistance with an account credit or refund, please send an e-mail to or contact the box office at (816) 931-3338.

Welcome Shawn Cullen!

On May 1, 2020, HMC announced that Shawn Cullen has been appointed Artistic Director. After a national search for a new director, our search committee was delighted to discover that the very best candidate was already here with us!

Shawn has served as Interim Artistic Director/Conductor HMC’s 34th Season in 2019-2020. Audience members experienced the energy and excitement that Shawn is bringing to the Chorus in the holiday concerts Making Spirits Bright in December 2019. Although the rest of the season concerts had to be cancelled due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we look forward to the theatrical vision and vital sound that Shawn will bring to HMC in Season 35.

Your Support Makes the Music Possible

Heartland Men’s Chorus is the largest and highest profile gay organization in the Kansas City region, and one of the most recognized arts organizations in the Midwest. Your financial support can transform lives, enhance the cultural landscape of Kansas City and be a powerful agent to change hearts and minds.

Contributions to the Annual Fund support the work of the Chorus, allowing us to purchase music, commission new works, and bring our message to places where our voices need to be heard, including school and regional outreach with our acclaimed social justice programs. Ticket sales and member dues account for less than 40% of our annual operating budget. Your continued support is critical for us to continue changing lives through music.
