I've enjoyed a number of TGMC concerts. They are always lively and varied. The singers are talented and well-blended. Watching them makes it clear that they believe in the importance of their mission and are carrying it out while giving many people a wonderful musical experience.

When I first heard the Triangle Gay Men's chorus, 8 years ago, they were doing a Broadway review. The concert was wonderful, full of the excitement and drama you find in broadway music. There was also a touching tribute to a mother(author), who was sitting at her son's bedside as he lay dying from aids complications. She asks the nurse what can I do, to which the nurse replied: "just sing". That moving tribute, coupled with having his "quilt" present in the church, was the motivation I needed to get involved with this organization...I was hooked.

A moto of the organization "transforming lives", I experienced first hand, while singing with the choir. I had only been out to my family a few years and asked my parents to come. On the night of the concert they were there, along with my son and partner. As the concert progressed, so did the warmth and emotion within me. By they time we got to the last song: "Listen to my Heart", I could barely sing, the words resignated with the moment, my life and my family's life was positively transformed forever.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Encourage growth and exposure.

A friend invited me to TGMC's holiday concert in December of 2010.
Not knowing quite what to expect, I was extremely impressed with hteir professionalism, musicality, showmanship and command of the music.
You could sense that they hade the audience "right inthe palms of thier hands" and could hear a pin drop at many points during the concert, to use two overused expressions. Inthis case, however, I cna think of no better way to describe they way they held their audience's collective . rapt attention.
At times, their sound was breathtaking.

Kudos to TGMC and their Director for the work they do and the beautiful results they achieve!

The Triangle Gay Men's Chorus is an under-appreciated musical treasure. It's sound shines above that of many community choruses.

In their superb performances the TGMC presents a positive image of the gay community that helps build a more accepting, tolerant society.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the contacts TGMC ahs made throughout the Raleigh-Durham area.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

increase their publicity so that they could reach more people.

I have truly enjoyed singing with this group. We perform a variety of music, from silly to provocative.

It was quite a thrill to be on the UNC-G stage as part of this group becoming the first gay group to sing before the NC chapter of ACDA (American Choral Director's Association).

All kudos for this group has been truly earned.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the joy of singing.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Have a larger group of singers.
