In 2016, friends—Jeremy Adams, Michael Champagne, Bradley Hamilton, and Dylan Walker—decided to form an acapella singing group, “The Unicords”. While the newly formed Unicords rehearsed, Michael joined a local theatre group and began working on a production being directed by Randall Wrisinger. Over many conversations it was clear that they all shared a love of music and performing. The thought of combining their talents, vision, and passion, excited everyone. The four friends asked Randall if he would be interested in joining them in the creation of a new men’s chorus—and the idea of PRISM was born. During the start-up, many other friends, including Matt Rindfleisch and Jerry Haines, joined the group and contributed to establishing the foundation and framework for what would become PRISM Gay Men and Allies Chorus of Metro Detroit. The rest is history.
PRISM is truly the product of the talents, dedication, hard work and love of music of many contributors. That is our greatest strength – every contributor is a “founder”.
PRISM Gay Men and Allies Chorus Corporation (“PRISM”) is a volunteer, non-profit, performing arts organization whose purpose is to support the Southeast Michigan LGBTQ+ and allies community. Committed to “changing lives one note at a time”, PRISM’s mission is to provide service through various out-reach programs and to provide the community with artistic programs through our seasonal performances.
