TGMC performed for the North Carolina regional conference of the American Choral Director's Association (www.acda.org) oneptember 19, 2009, at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro School of Music. TGMC was the very first "openly" GLBT chorus to perform at this regional conference. After TGMC's moving performance, these comments were offered by members of the very discerning audience: "...I loved the way the sound at the end of "Lux Aeterna" just settled... like a bubble settling upon a blade of grass" ".. especially for a community choral organization, the control of your group was fascinating" ".. you can tell these guys really enjoy singing.. one of the most passionate performances I have heard this weekend." ".. your blend and phrasing is just splendid - the text was clear and refined without being affected.. nice work"
December 13, 2008, Raleigh, NC: The sound of choristers gently wafted above us from the rear of the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship Hall — a warm welcome on a cold wintry night. The Triangle Gay Men’s Chorus, directed by John-Phillip Mullinax, presented a program of seasonal anthems, spirituals and classics, the first concert of the 2008-09 A Peaceable Season. With a focus on eliminating communication barriers, eyes on the conductor and out of the printed music,the widely-spaced arrangement of the chorus coupled with immaculate attention to detail, this chorus delivered their message with aplomb.The Chorus was brilliant. In the end, TGMC can chalk this up as a success! And after many musical accomplishments, Mullinax, a native North Carolinian who found his way back home, has the stuff to develop something wonderful. I’m looking forward to watching this group grow under his artistic direction
